What makes Teaching Parents How To Teach So Valuable?

“After 25 years of helping children to overcome learning challenges, I realised that there was a way to prevent their distress”.

Many children who are experiencing problems in grade 1 and 2 may not have a recognised learning difference, they simply have not understood some key early concepts. These children slip by unnoticed in today’s busy classrooms and often develop coping skills to cover their lack of understanding.

The solution is YOUR Participation!

“If parents knew how important their involvement was in how their children learn, they would not hesitate to take the time to participate”.

To help parents understand how, I have created a resource that will explain ‘The How to, Where to, Why to of Teaching Young Children’. Parents will find all they need to prepare their children for School, from the first finger painting to their first wristwatch. In between is a multitude of firsts that every parent and grandparent should experience. In ‘Teaching Parents How To Teach’ we will walk you through each stage, showing you how to build levels of understanding that ensure your children comprehend each step.

Jill Shows You How

With Video instructions for each lesson, Jill shows you what to do, what to say and how to teach your child so they will remember how.
