The Confident Learner: Help Your Child Succeed in School.
Simic, Marjorie R.; And Others
This book is intended to assist parents in helping their children become confident learners and self-reliant individuals who succeed in school. The book maintains that children become confident learners by developing high self-esteem, strong motivation, self-discipline, good health and fitness, and the ability to deal with stress. Following an introduction, the book's eight chapters are as follows: Helping Your Child Develop Self-Esteem; (2) How To Motivate Your Child; (3) Stress Affects Your Child's Learning; (4) Discipline and Learning; (5) Parents as Models; (6) Homework Is Home Learning; (7) Fitness and School Achievement; and (8) Working with the School. Each of the book's chapters includes practical suggestions and activities for fun and learning, for reading and writing, for recreation, for coping with stress, and for motivating children to learn effectively. Each chapter also presents lists of relevant books for parents, for children (in age categories 4-6, 6-8, and 8-10), and for parents and children to read together. (SR)
