Parents can Help Tutors
Many parents spend a great deal of effort and money to improve their kids' academic results through private tutors for particular subjects. A parenting expert claims parents can boost the effects of tutoring by giving their kids emotional support.

In modern society, school grades are a common way for parents and children to measure performance. Many parents put pressure on their kids to do better at school and expect their confidence to rise with their grades. Most parents consider a good academic record the key to getting into a good university and landing good jobs later on in life.
For this purpose, parents enlist the help of professional tutors (sometimes also called "academic coaches") who spend time with the kids individually or in small groups and help them with their studies. More often than not, the focus is on Mathematics, English or Science, especially during high school.
But maybe this is not enough. Maybe children's emotional development could make a significant contributing to their success. International parenting expert Ronit Baras thinks so.
"I believe that happy kids who feel loved and appreciated do better at everything, including school work. I believe that parents should clear their kids' emotional learning blockages and help them associate learning with fun. Then, every tutoring effort (and dollar) will be well spent and the children will score so high their parents will be delighted", says Mrs. Baras.
But how can parents free their kids' from emotional limitations and help their confidence grow?
One thing parents can do is attend the Be Happy in LIFE parenting workshop "Happy Parents Raise Happy Kids", where they will be given the required skills within one day.
The full day workshop will be on Sunday, 14 March 2010, at Southern Cross Sports Club on Klumpp Road, Upper Mt Gravatt and promises to make another group of parents and their kids happy and successful.
