For more than forty years and counting, family psychologist and best-selling author John Rosemond has been counseling parents about how to help children do their best in school. This new book draws on all of that knowledge and experience so that parents can set their kids on the path to success in education, even at age three. Dealing with common problems like how much and what kind of help to give with homework, what to do when a child misbehaves in school, and how to deal with academic performance that consistently falls below a child's ability level, Rosemond addresses every issue with time-tested advice and methods. Other books on schoolwork encourage lots of parental involvement. Not this one. Rosemond's approach will help parents disengage from homework and other hassles as they manage their children to even greater success in the classroom. Describing his behavior management strategies that are used by school systems all over the country, he writes with an entertaining, compelling style that will keep parents reading the valuable, helpful information in John Rosemond's Fail-Safe Formula for Helping Your Child Succeed in School, and the book promises to earn high marks for both parents and children.
A practical, real-world guide helping parents help their children succeed at school. The book will inform and advise parents of children of all ages on how they can best support their child through the education system, maximising their confidence, academic abilities and all-round success.

In ihrem Erlebnisbericht erzählt die Autorin fesselnd, witzig und mit kluger Offenheit von einem gnadenlosen Kampf, der ihr und ihren Töchtern alles abverlangte: ein packendes und hochkomisches Buch über Familie und Erziehung, über Leistungsdruck und über den Willen, unbedingt zu siegen.

"Die 7 Wege zur Effektivität" sind ein Klassiker und eines der einflussreichsten Bücher, die jemals geschrieben wurden. Seit der Erstveröffentlichung 1989 gehört es mit über 30 Millionen verkauften Exemplaren weltweit auch heute noch zu den wichtigsten Business-Bestsellern und hat auch nach fast 30 Jahren weder an Relevanz noch an Aktualität verloren. Das Buch liefert Prinzipien und überzeugende Konzepte zur Steigerung der persönlichen Effektivität, die Menschen und Organisationen weltweit bis heute positiv beeinflussen. Die zentrale Botschaft des Buches: Nicht angelernte Erfolgstechniken, sondern Charakter, Kompetenz und Vertrauen führen zu einem erfüllten und erfolgreichen Leben. Das gilt in unserer heutigen volatilen Lebens- und Arbeitswelt mehr denn je. Kenntnisreich und anhand von zahlreichen pointierten Anekdoten zeigt Covey Schritt für Schritt, wie wir Fairness, Integrität, Ehrlichkeit und menschliche Würde in unser Leben und Miteinander integrieren. Prinzipien, die uns angesichts immer drängenderer Veränderungen Sicherheit geben und zugleich die Weisheit und Kraft verleihen, die Chancen in der Veränderung zu sehen und zu ergreifen.
Since the 1970’s, educators, psychologists and politicians have continually stressed the need to help children actually learn how to learn. This groundbreaking book is the first of its kind to do just that. Aimed at parents who want to start their kids off on the right track, this book is actually a step-by-step course to help you teach your kids how to learn. It’s filled with explanations, exercises, tips, check lists and guidelines to help you at every step in the process. Your kids won’t learn these things in school, because schools aren’t equipped to provide it. Here is your chance to make up for what’s missing in the classroom. You won’t find anything like it anywhere else. THIS BOOK IS GREAT! Sid has written what may be the definitive guide for parents (... and anyone else who works with children). He literally covers it all: how to prepare yourself, the most important things you need to pay attention to when you are working with children to help them succeed... -Joseph Riggio, Ph.D., Cognitive Scientist, author of The State of Perfection The frustration with learning can be greatly alleviated if we apply the principles and processes offered in this book. If you are a parent, teacher or have ever been a young frustrated learner, you will love this book.... -Judith DeLozier, Co-author of NLP II: The Next Generation In a remarkably practical and engaging way, Sid Jacobson offers helpful and unique suggestions for how to help kids to fall in love with ‘learning to learn’. It is clear that Sid is sharing a passion that he has developed for many years. I highly recommend this book! -Stephen Gilligan, Ph.D., Psychologist, author of The Courage To Love
