Really informative podcast that’s great for students and parents.
Such an informative podcast
This is a clear, no nonsense podcast with interesting topics connected to schooling, studying whilst being mindful of the pressures our children are under. Highly recommended
Fabulous tool for parents and their teens!
I’ve put these on whilst I’ve been cooking, or pottering around the house, to learn more about the exam system and how to effectively support my son and daughter through their GCSE’s.
Both my children are very different in terms of motivation, discipline and focus so it’s helped to learn about different approaches to use with them both.
I’m now continuing to use the support from Lucy as my son looks towards A levels and his dream to go to Oxford.
I feel that by reviewing these valuable resources, he’s giving himself the best chance possible! It’s a fantastic service....and it’s free!!!!
