As children’s first teachers, parents need to provide a firm foundation for lifelong learning. In this new book, award-winning educator Marcia L. Tate provides a research-based road map for raising respectful, responsible children who achieve to their fullest potential. The best-selling author, mother, and grandmother shares brain-compatible strategies for guiding children toward personal, academic, and career success. Her latest book provides parents and caregivers with a wealth of practical tips and tools for:

  • Creating a calm and brain-compatible home environment
  • Incorporating positive physical contact and verbal communication
  • Encouraging play that develops creativity and imagination
  • Strengthening children’s auditory, tactile, kinesthetic, and visual modes of learning.

Preparing Children for Success in School and Life shows parents how to help children’s brains “grow dendrites” in everyday ways such as telling them stories, using music to enhance memory, turning homework time into fun time, and allowing them freedom to draw and write. From day one through graduation and beyond, you and your family will reap the benefits of the author’s 30+ years of experience with thousands of children.
