This invaluable guide for parents, by two leading educationalists, has been written to support parents in helping their children through the pre-school and primary years - to show that parents can make an enormous difference to their child's chances of success in life.The book also shows how families can enjoy learning together, for the home and its immediate environment offer wonderful opportunities for discovery, exploration, play, education and learning. Packed with activities, games and tips, together with suggestions for dealing with everyday concerns, such as helping with homework and things to do in the school holidays, this book is both a practical reference guide and a thought-provoking read.Each chapter opens with a number of questions, which both act as a stimulus and introduce the topics it covers, followed by a fun quiz. A Quick Check summary at the end of each chapter acts as a reminder of the key points. Family Games and information about using the internet, together with useful websites for both parents and children, are included in the Resources section at the back of the book.
