Description

"One of the toughest and most important decisions parents face is choosing the right school for their child. Dr. Kevin Leman provides a timely and valuable resource for all parents searching for the school--whether public, private, charter, online, or home school--that will best fit their child."--Dr. Bill Bennett, former secretary of education and host of The Bill Bennett Show

School isn't just about cramming information into a child's head, making sure they test well, and getting grades that look great on a report card. It's about mastering principles that carry into real-life applications.

Every parent wants the best possible education for their child--one that fits their child's unique needs and talents, challenges them to grow, and equips them to succeed. But with so many options it's easy for parents to feel overwhelmed and, well, undereducated about the choices. What's more, while a specific schooling option may be right for one child in your family, it may be challenging for another. And just because your child thrives in one environment in elementary school doesn't mean they'll succeed in that same environment in middle school.

In this practical book, parenting expert and longtime educator Dr. Kevin Leman takes the guesswork out of choosing the best schooling for your child. He explores the pros and cons of public, private, and charter schools, as well as homeschooling and online schooling, in order to show you how to

- match your child's natural strengths with the educational environment best suited to build on those strengths
- determine when your child is ready for preschool and kindergarten
- partner with your child's teachers and school
- get your child excited about learning
- and more!

Want your child to flourish in their school environment? To master real-life skills? To succeed in their future endeavors? Now's the time to actively engage with your child's education.
