Every parent wants their child to do well at school. But learning doesn't end in the classroom. Stephen Hastings argues that parents can make a real difference and, through a realistic, holistic approach, aims to show parents how to help their children succeed at school. From study skills and sorting out the 3 Rs, to diet and exercise, plus plenty of tips to keep children motivated, "School Smart" explains what 21st-century schooling is all about and shows parents how they can support and complement the work that teachers do. It's not about pushy parenting, but rather how a structured and strategic approach can help children to really fulfil their potential.
