"After doing the profiling on her website and discussing it with her and then “scanning” the book, I realized how wrong I was in my approach to my son...The next week came and my teen had missing assignments and a big test coming up...I followed the principles outlined in the book. Today, he has all Bs again...He might even have a chance at a couple of As before the year ends. He’s happy, his mom is happy and I’m happy too. Next, I fired the tutor saving over $700 a m

"When I read through...[the] book, I sat there with my mouth open – floored by the amount of detail and insight, revelation about my son. This is the kit every child should come with."

"Armed with tools obtained from her Kidzmet Playbook, we approached this...lesson a little bit differently. When the lesson was over, the teacher commented how amazing this turnaround was–a special one-of-a-kind 180. My only reply–Kidzmet...Thank you Kidzmet. You’ve armed us with knowledge that has truly changed our lives."

"I identified (in retrospect) each of my children and then read the strategies suggested for each one. I found the advice amazingly accurate. Years of trial and error could have been saved if I had been given this information."
http://blog.denschool.com/kidzmet/ - Tawnee Hinton
"The book is awesome. It defines the personality type, discussed getting things organized for your child in a manner that caters to their nature learning type, and discusses note taking and filing systems, homework and test preparation, group learning, and enrichment activities that fit the personality type. Additionally motivation & underachievement are discussed as well as handling successes & failures in the best way for your child’s personality type."

Parent's Playbook for Learning: 8 Types of Learners 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

There are  eight types of learners. Extravert, introvert, judge, perceiver, sensor, intuitive, thinker or feeler. Each of these learners have their own special way of absorbing information.  Their environment for learning is different. We as parents can help these children be more productive if we know how they approach learning.      In the first few pages I found myself identifying my three children's learning styles.  I could see the benefit of making sure where they learn. I mean their study area at home.  I was amazed how much easier they picked up on their lessons when they were in their element.  Ms Lilienstein did a fantastic job of making sure this book is easy to read and implement.  If you are a parent, you need this book. Will save so many headaches and fights.      The only issue, I think it should have been maybe a couple of books. It's a lot of information to gather and put into play.       I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because I haven't found a book this good for parents!   ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~

Should be added to the requirements for an Education degree. Did I enjoy this book: It was wonderful. Lilienstein puts a new twist on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: instead of adults taking the famed personality quiz, she has parents take a simplified version to try and identify their child’s personality type. Lilienstein then breaks up her version of personality types and offers recommendations for how best to teach, encourage, and help children with the identified personality types. She even includes sections – the most valuable if you ask me – about which extracurricular activities most closely fit which personality types, and about how exactly to get in sync with your child’s educators (without annoying or offending them). Lilienstein makes sure to apply the “don’t do this with special needs kids unless your professional consultant approves” caveat, but the theme of the book seems to be that every kid has special needs and it’s our job as parents and educators to figure them out and thereby help our children succeed. She uses simple, easy to understand language, gives loads of concrete examples and visual aids, and supplies a ton of references for further reading. Would I recommend it: Absolutely. The Parent’s Playbook for Learning should be added to the requirements for an Education degree. It’s a great read for parents who want to be actively involved in their child’s education. Will I read it again: I’m keeping it on the shelf for when my son’s old enough to head off to school. As reviewed by Melissa at Every Free Chance Book Reviews.

This book is a handy guide for parents, teachers and caregivers of children. It explains the 8 different learning styles of children. I feel this guide is helpful in getting a better understanding of your child’s learning style. This book can help with learning how to have a successful time with homework time. It explains that with both parent and teacher participation a child can have a fun learning experience. I felt this book to be helpful.
