"The 3rd edition of this insightful book has updated and expanded information to keep the reader up-to-date with our ever-changing world of raising kids. This is a book that you do not have to sit down and read cover to cover to find the part that applies to your situation. You will find instant answers, and from my own personal experience will receive instant results. After reading a few pages of this book, I incorporated Sylvia's strategies and was astounded at the quick and positive results in my own children. Seeing the improvement in your children and the way they feel about themselves when they begin to achieve puts a smile on everyone's face and gives the parent the pat on the back and the assurance that you do have the ability to raise happy, successful children.
The greatest thing about this book is the reader will get more and more out of it as time goes by. How to Parent So Children Will Learn will not spend much time on the bookshelf at my house, I will be referring to it constantly." -- Trish Trimble, Missouri Association for the Gifted and Talented.
