Combining his parenting and longtime educational expertise, Dr. Kevin Leman offers help to parents in understanding their options as they wade through the confusing waters of today’s school choices in his new book, Education a la Carte (Revell). Education isn’t a one-size fits all. He lays out the different options and explains the pros and cons of each choice and how each individual child, including siblings, may thrive in a different educational setting. Because the type of schooling pursued for a child is one of the most critical decisions a parent will make, understanding those choices and identifying your child’s unique skills and interests will be crucial to achieving a quality education.
Using his trademark humor and commonsense psychology, Dr. Leman will introduce parents to a menu of options to consider in making an informed decision. He will help parents:
- learn how to capitalize on their child’s strengths, weaknesses, natural talents, and curiosity
- wade through the myriad education options – pros and cons
- find out if their child is ready for preschool or kindergarten
- gain perspective on grades and homework
- strategize just the right education options for their individual child
Dr. Leman wants to change the conversation about education from Parent: “So, what did you learn at school today?” Child: “Nothin.” to “Mom/Dad, guess what I learned at school today?” He shows parents how to choose schooling options wisely that will provide academic excellence, real-life application and a perfect match for their child’s uniqueness.
