3 Things Parents Can Do to Inspire Learning


Schools are full of wonderful teachers, working in a system that by most accounts is less then ideal. The system is such that it is very hard for a child to stand out.

Yet the demands of the world are changing and to prepare children to be inspired learners, more and more of the educational responsibilities fall to parents. How can parents take this on, when they are already so involved and busy? Is this one more thing that parents must do? How do they gain the skill to do this effectively?
