Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is great if you have children who aren't too thrilled with homework. It even includes pages you can copy to use as tools and can be read in less than 2 hours. We recently moved and have had a lot of trouble with our 12 year old who normally is an "A" student. Following the guidelines set for in this book have made a big difference.
My school has endorsed this book for some years now. We have held parent meetings explaining what the program advocates. We have daily meetings with the classes at the beginning of each year until all the material is covered. Easy reading for the professional or parent--very easy to follow.
