An accessible, practical guide to help parents develop their children's attitudes, values and good habits in the early school years, helping them to thrive as happy learners.
Thriving at School aims to help children flourish in the crucial early school years and beyond. This easy-to-read, practical guide is designed to help parents develop their children's attitudes, values and good habits and so help them become happy and effective learners. Highly regarded authors Dr John Irvine and John Stewart consider ways to help a child succeed in the classroom, be stimulated to learn, deal with difficulties in the playground, and get on well with others at school and at home.
The authors write: "Current research shows that our children's success in life will depend less on their 'traditional' IQ and more on their emotional intelligence, their ability to form successful relationships, be more understanding of others and form a positive outlook on life. They will need the new Three Rs: the values of respect, responsibility and relationships. These values underpin every student's capacity to thrive at school."
Dr John Irvine is an educational psychologist, a consultant psychologist, a counsellor and a widely recognised specialist on children's behaviour. He is the author of significant books for parents such as A Handbook for Happy Families and Who'd be a Parent?.
John Stewart is Head of the Junior School at Central Coast Grammar in NSW, a highly experienced educator and has been teaching in Australia and the UK since 1993. He has a Masters of Education degree from Cambridge University and is the author of an innovative multimedia online textbook, Writeonline.
