Hidden Dangers to Kids' Learning: A Parent Guide to Cope with Educational Roadblocks by Betsy Gunzelmann

This book marks a new beginning, providing a way for parents to understand and help their academically struggling children. Both parents and children should be empowered to recognize the perils and pitfalls of the current educational crisis and take responsibility for and control of education before it is too late. Parents have new reasons to believe in their children and new ways to help their children be able to cope in the global community. Gunzelmann explains that because schools and classrooms vary greatly, uniform policies and standards are hidden dangers that may interfere with optimal learning. One school may produce excited students who excel, while other schools with the same policies in that district experience student failure and increased dropout rates. The solution she offers lies in understanding children's basic needs, their learning styles, and the need to foster/teach resilience, optimism, and flexibility.
