Decades of research confirm that greater parent involvement leads to better students, but how do parents get involved in their childrens' education? Here's a book to help you figure it all out!

The Parent Backpack for Kindergarten through Grade 5: How to Support Your Child's Education, End Homework Meltdowns, and Build Parent-Teacher Connections, by ML Nichols, offers tips and tools to help parents:
  • understand their critical role in their kids' education
  • communicate with teachers in respectful ways
  • encourage a love of reading in children
  • minimize homework meltdowns and disorganization
  • distinguish between learning and achieving
  • support a child who struggles
  • help kids navigate social and bullying situations
  • fuel childrens' minds and bodies so they can thrive

This insightful book demystifies the often daunting education system to enable parents to help their children succeed. Hailed as a "must-read" by Parents magazine, Nichols has taken proven strategies and insights and condensed them into an easy to read manual for parents.
