I give you the tools and guidance you need to smooth the transition to school and set your child up for success - all in a way that is driven by the child's interests and provides reassurance - not stress! - for parents.
Here's the beginning of an email that Kesha from Oklahoma spontaneously sent to me after she completed the unit on the neuroscience of learning (sounds technical, right?):
"I LOVED this section on the neuroscience of learning, it made so much sense, provided so many pointers, and gives tools I can definitely use to find better ways to make new things we learn relevant to my son. I had a really hard time doing that before but I think using his interests, then finding ways to tie different subjects to them and letting him lead me through how he’d like to demonstrate his learning are concrete, easy to apply tactics. This course is amazing!"
This course is perfect for you if:
This course has the information and support you need to understand and shape your role in your child's learning, and prepare your child for success.

"I had been worried about the transition to school but this course was both tremendously reassuring and inspiring. It both makes very clear the limitations of the school setting but empowered me to see what I can individually do to make the most of the experience. It also, refreshingly, makes clear that perfection is not the goal. Instead it provided me with the knowledge and ideas to find and make the most of opportunities to extend my daughter’s learning according to her own unique needs and interests.
I loved the background I gained on learning to read which gave context as my daughter brought her phonics sheets home and began to bring her first books home to read. Much more than that, though, the course overall provides a great framework for thinking about learning in a way very much tailored to my own unique child and situation. The exercises and interaction with a Facebook group really helped to pause and reflect on the information in order to better apply it.
All in all it has been a tremendous resource and dovetails nicely with the equally wonderful podcast series [www.YourParentingMojo.com]. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to make the most of their child’s school experience."
