This handbook for parents stresses the ways in which children benefit when the responsibility for education is shared by the school and the home. The first section of the handbook proposes that parents' attitudes and their relationship with their children may be the most influential factors in children's success in school. It further proposes that the home setting should be a learning environment that helps children develop good study habits. The second section encourages parents to model active learning by reading aloud to their children. Several children's books at various reading levels, 24 children's magazines, and 6 resources on parent involvement, are suggested. The third section discusses practical activities that can be done at home or in other family settings to help children succeed in school. An extensive list of such activities is provided. (BC)
