Almost every child encounters school-related problems at some point in his or her life.
The reason stems from the fact that children spend most of their waking hours at school with friends and teachers than at home with their families.
And we parents know that when our child struggles, we struggle.
So the more we understand about his experiences at school, the better equipped we are to help him overcome problems that arise.
This can be hard, however, because parents are not at school with a child and therefore may miss issues that arise.
Learn how to determine what troubles your child could be having at school and how you can be their advocate.
A child’s experience with school, in large part, determines his happiness, career choice, self-esteem, friendships, and overall well-being.
Positive school experience is critical to your child’s future health and wellness.
Developing a love and respect for education within your child helps develop strong mental flexibility and much more.
A great education is one of the best gifts that we parents can give our children.
Education is far more than acquiring knowledge. It is about learning how to live as an adult who has something to contribute to other people in order to make life around him better than it would otherwise.
Good news— you are the best person for this job.

"I believe the difference between feeling scared or lost, and creating confidence in your parenting goals can come down to having a plan and getting the right tools for the job. My goal is to give you everything you need to be your child’s advocate" - Dr. Meg
As a pediatrician of 30 years, I have seen every parenting style imaginable. I have watched thousands of kids grow up in all types of situations, and through it, I have learned what works and what doesn’t when it comes to raising great kids.
I developed the Make School Work For Your Child toolkit to empower parents and children alike.
Remember parents, the majority of children’s development happens during their school-aged years, prime them for success today for their tomorrow.
