The school bells are already ringing, announcing the start of a new school year.
Here at Positive Parental Participation, we are joining the celebration.
We believe that building self-esteem is of critical importance. Do you?
Studies show that children with a positive self-image:
- Are more likely to take on new challenges
- Have greater school success
- Make friends more easily
- Do not become bullies or the victims of bullies
Many children are in school for eight hours a day. Little ones in daycare facilities while their parents are working may be there for even longer periods of time.
Isn’t it important for teachers and other child-care providers to have the best resources available to succeed in this important task?
Not only an award-winning parenting resource…it’s also a wonderful addition to any classroom bookshelf.
”It will be an excellent resource for our Family Literacy Center’s programs” – Rhonda Cooper, Program Director, Literacy Volunteers of Leon County, FL
Many local teachers have purchased their own copy to place in their classrooms…there is even a copy on the shelves of the teacher-education department at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
“We will add it to our collection in support of our Educational Studies Program.” – Celia Rabinowitz, Director of the Library, St. Mary’s College of Maryland
“It is a great tool to help our children become successful.” – Mary Newquist, Assistant Principal, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School, Selma, TX
