We spend a lot of our time creating and sharing resources for educators and parents (who are often one and the same audience). Time and time again, we observe that families are left out of the equation when it comes to determining the primary audience for education reports, papers and articles—even though they are among the hungriest for informed opinions that can help them. 

This is why, in partnership with The Nellie Mae Education Foundation, Getting Smart has cultivated a popular parents’ blog series, Smart Parents, to share stories for parents by parents on both GettingSmart.com and on The Huffington Post. The project, hatched around the office kitchen counter in the summer of 2014, grew out of the recognition that parents need help making informed decisions, finding quality resources and providing the best supports for kids. With the 80+ parent stories we’ve gathered, we have authored our newest book: Smart Parents: Parenting for Powerful Learning. 

As educators and as parents, we have seen profound shifts in the way in which human beings learn—both young and old. Families face unprecedented amounts of information and education-related decisions. This often leaves parents navigating a complex maze of new learning opportunities, new standards, new assessments and new technology. 

This book is a resource to guide parents in creating, choosing and advocating for powerful, student-centered learning experiences for their children. It is designed to facilitate conversation about important educational decisions parents face today. With advice on everything from picking preschools to accessing educational apps, this is the resource for parents so they can be informed, involved, inspirational and intentional.

MY THOUGHTS:

This books is great!  It is written in a way that is easy to read and understand.  It draws from experienced parents and learning experts and shows us (as parents) how to better serve our children.   It helps to show how we can better blend school and home learning. This book is jam packed with useful and valuable advice and it a book I will continue to refer to!   My favorite part of the book as the KEY POINTS...it really helps to summarize what was stated! 4.5 stars 






Life is Great Even When It Sucks helps you deal with old and new challenges we face everyday. This book helps you move forward past fears and behaviors that block you from being who you really are and doing what you really want to do. Using a simple system this book will teach you healthy ways to trust, deal with conflict, be accountable, honor your commitments and live with the results of your choices. You use this five-point system now, you just don't know how to use it powerfully. 

Combining the five-point system with a new understanding about the influences from family, societal and media cultures sheds a new light on all your relationships - personal, business and societal. 

Using your personal toolbox, uncovered by the strategies in this book, you will have the keys to unlock stagnant and destructive relationships, especially the one you have with yourself. 

Acknowledge and use your potential to achieve your dreams by learning what makes you do the things you do and why the other people in your life do the things they do. You are worth getting to know better.

MY THOUGHTS:
What a great book to read to help examine your own life, fears, insecurities and motivations!  It helps you really take a deeper look at yourself and find ways to find the joy when life is hard. 
4 stars
