Includes tips for home schoolers.What do you do when your child hates school?When little Sarah cries herself to sleep at night, when Johnny has tummy aches in the morning, something is clearly wrong. An occasional problem at school is one thing. But what do you do when school is the problem? When your child hates school because school doesn't like your child, you've got to act. Don't let a one-size-fits-all educational system steal the joys and riches of learning from your son or daughter. Your child is unique, with a personal learning style that needs to be understood and respected. In this groundbreaking book, learning expert Cynthia Ulrich Tobias shows how you can work with your child's school and teachers to tailor an education your child will love, not hate. Here are practical ways to craft an approach that draws out your son or daughter's giftedness and minimizes the things that frustrate.Filled with practical applications and insights as commonsense as they are revolutionary, I Hate School includes a Learning Styles Profile Summary on which to base your plans and actions. So don't waste time. Today, starting now, you can take steps toward an education for your child that will replace the words "I hate school" with "Is it time to go to school yet?"
