Publishers WeeklyTate knows firsthand how difficult it can be to raise children; as a mother, grandmother, educator, and consultant, she has years of experience to back her latest (after Science Worksheets Don't Grow Dendrites), an eye-opening manual for raising productive, responsible children. The themes might seem familiar, but the book is full of relevant and useful information. Based on research, proverbial wisdom ("Tell me, I forget! Show me, I remember!"), and her own life, Tate's book covers topics such as learning environments ("Surround Your Child With a Calming Environment"), the efficacy of positive reinforcement ("Accentuate the Positive"), and various modes of learning. Tate acknowledges that parenting is a full-time job, and encourages parents to be involved in their child's educational life. In the foreword, consultant Eric Jensen calls this a "'take-action' book," and it really is just that; presented in a workbook format, the book has multiple pages on which parents can jot down notes to questions and ways to improve themselves. The information is organized and immediately applicable, making this a good read and a great resource.
