This highly topical and relevant book for parents will help with raising not only life long learners, but children with long and happy learned lives.Young people are entering a world that requires more than straight 'A's (if it ever did) and yearns for the well rounded, multiple intelligent, creative and mature individual that can manage change and complexity without getting upset, petulant and stomping off in a huff. The focus in this informative, entertaining and ultimately practical book is very straight forward: to provide parents with practical skills, based on solid research, to assist their children to become, not only life long learners, but live a long and happy learned life.
