Sometimes you want to ask someone who's been there ... (and been doing it a LONG
Sometimes you want good news, and a positive plan... (Suzanne
believes parents have heard enough bad news already.)
~ Does my child really
need a tutor? If so, how can I be sure it's a good one, and that it isn't used as
just a crutch?
~ Do my children's grades really measure their learning, or are there better
ways to know how they're doing?
~ How can I find my child's unseen strengths?
~ How can I connect my children to education, and help them come to LOVE
~ What if they already hate it, and have already disconnected?
We've tried to fill our site with help for so many of the
situations families face as students struggle to learn and parents struggle to help
But sometimes you want to discuss your child's
specific situation with someone who can answer your specific questions, and come up with a
plan you can implement, that is tailored for your child. A plan you don't need any
special training for, other than the fact that you love this child.
So many people wrote us asking how to get help and advise
for their specific situations, other than just finding a tutor, or handing off the
Many ask, "What will happen when I can't help with the
homework any more?" Even more are already there. But helping with homework is
unnecessary for our children's academic success and love of learning. In fact, not
knowing how to help is often more helpful than knowing how. But few parents know how
to do anything more.
So Suzanne began offering one-on-one consulations with
parents (in-person or via phone), giving parents strong, positive answers to their
specific questions and powerful, positive ideas they can implement now. The response
has been overwhelming.
Among the comments we have hear from parents after speaking
"Now I don't dread it when they get stuck
"I no longer hide at homework time, or send them
to my spouse!"
"I didn't ever realize that I was inadvertently
hurting their test performance; I thought I was helping! But now, I really am."
"I don't need to nag anymore."
"I had hired a tutor for her, but she began using
that as a crutch, not a tool. Now I know how to spot the 'crutches' that only helped
in the short term, and replace them with skills that last in the long term."
Among the questions parents get answers to:
- Does your child need a tutor, or just a shift in approach?
- How do you find your child's strengths, and use them to
connect him or her to education, so that school becomes a place they want to go,
not just have to go?
- Is she really a poor test taker, or does she just not know
how to really study for a test?
- Are you inadvertently contributing to their test anxiety?
- Do you know the simple questions you can ask (without
needing to know the answers) that will automatically raise their math test scores?
- Do his grades really represent his learning and ability?
- How do you replace her negative self-image in school with a
strong and honest positive one?
- What can you do if they already hate school, and feel sure
it's not for them?
- How can you strongly counteract the negative messages they
get, with postive ones they'll believe?
- How can you tell if good grades are masking weak learning?
- How can you tell if poor grades are masking strong skills?
- and any other questions you may have...
It is not difficult to make school
and learning a place kids want to be, and a place they feel connected to.
