View DescriptionA book for parents and teachers that explores how children’s individual strengths create success. Educator Fox is poised to change the conversation about education in this country. For too long, parents and teachers have focused on identifying and “fixing” kids’ weaknesses–this book turns that flawed paradigm on its head. Fox’s strengths-based philosophy provides the tools to prepare kids for the future in a world that demands greater adaptability and creative thinking than ever before. She gives parents and teachers the tools to discover strengths in three main areas working in tandem: Activity Strengths, the tasks that make us feel engaged and energized; Relationship Strengths, the things we do for and with others that make us feel valued and competent; and Learning Strengths, the ways we approach and understand new information. This book is a road map for young people and society to a future that plays to strengths.–From publisher description.

View Description“Can you help me with my math homework?” If, like most parents, this question fills you with dread, then this is the book for you. In the “good old days,” elementary students simply memorized their times tables and struggled through long division. Today, students are expected not just to find the right answer, but also to choose the best method for doing so–and to explain why it works. On top of that, students are learning new strategies–even for basic arithmetic–that look foreign to many parents. This is your guide to: number lines, place value and negative numbers; long multiplication and division; fractions, percentages and decimals; shapes, symmetry and angles; data analysis, probability and chance. With sample questions, examples of common errors, and over 25 games and activities, this book will help you and your child discover math all around you–and have fun doing it!–From publisher description.
