The back-to-school season has begun: are your kids ready for a new school year? When our children hit academic bumps in the road (and they will), it’s hard for parents to figure out the best ways to help redirect them toward success. This week Carol sits down with Windy Lopez-Aflitto, the VP of Content and Partnerships at Learning Heroes, a national organization which helps parents support their children’s learning at home. Carol and Windy get to the bottom of why there’s such a large gap between what parents think about their child’s grade level progress and how their kids are actually doing in school. They offer parents the tips they need to better understand their child’s learning experience and help improve it. Carol and Windy examine the complex relationship teachers and parents can have and share specific ways parents can work with teachers to make sure their children are engaged in their schoolwork and getting as much as possible out of it. This episode is a must for parents and caregivers of school-age children looking for expert advice on helping their kids thrive in school.
