In today’s educational world, it’s increasingly important for parents to become proactive in their children’s education.

Parents can benefit enormously by having a full grasp of the scope and context of current educational realities so they can understand where their kids are at any time in their learning curve and also how best to help them overcome any obstacles.

Giving your kids a head start for the kind of success they deserve in high school and beyond is a plus for parents in many ways.

For one, it gives them the tools they need to see that their kids are on track to achieve academic success both immediately and when they arrive at college or university - and it prepares them for success in their careers.

Second, it boosts kids’ self-esteem and confidence - these are the natural consequences of knowing how to do a job well and effectively.

Third, using these strategies gives parents and grandparents a terrific opportunity to bond with their children or grandchildren and experience their youngsters’ success first-hand.

Working with your child on these skills for even as little as 10 minutes an evening on a consistent basis can yield phenomenal results - because you’ll be PREPARING your kids for success now, rather than REPAIRING them later.

Making the transition from elementary school to high school can be filled with challenges and uncertainties. And there are several key factors that can affect kids’ development as learners and their success in school. For example, some of the negative influences can come from things like peer pressure, technological distractions such as video games, or not having an effective study system in place.

What students really need to take a successful step from early grades to the more challenging requirements of high school is a clear-cut system, a “road map” that effectively connects the two.

The following areas highlight the most crucial of these strategies and provide parents and students with numerous solutions - and benefits - when dealing with each.

The top three skill sets for student and career success fall into these categories: writing skills, study skills and motivation skills.

The best writers attain the highest and most powerful positions as lawyers, political leaders, CEOs representing management’s perspective to employees and shareholders, speechwriters, etc... Effective writers are often just as effective as speakers - a value added feature that often takes them to the highest rungs of the corporate and career ladders.

Similarly, the top students develop effective study skills that later make them outstanding researchers in their professions and careers. Knowing how to use certain study techniques makes all the difference in the world between those who achieve the top marks and those who just scrape by or fail.

Finally, those students who have learned and developed successful motivation skills in school will also be the ones who carry those over as they are succeeding in their careers. Effective motivational strategies will spark enthusiasm and motivation in students, whether they’re in high school, college or university.

All the segments contained here are ways to “turbo charge” your children’s learning. Rather than just “going through the motions” of getting an education, they can use these methods to put zip, gusto, and drive into getting the most out of it.
