School Smart: Its More Than Just Reading & Writing
By Shauna F. King
From homework, to report cards, to spring fever, school can be tough, and not just for children. School Smart is an easy to read guidebook that steers parents and educators through a school year, touching on the significant milestones encountered and explaining how best to help children navigate those experiences. Each school year is a journey through which we have the privilege of coaching our children to make smart choices. Teachers and parents have different roles, yet both are steering toward the same destination. If we think of school as a sports game, then the child is the star player and we are the coaches on the sidelines, guiding and cheering them as they fumble, score, and pass. The author, Shauna F. King, provides valuable suggestions and tools for success while also acknowledging pitfalls every teacher, parent, and student faces. Full of practical and insightful content, School Smart provides parents and teachers with insight that aids in arming and empowering youth to excel and succeed.
