Book Presents, 'The Ultimate Parent Involvement Planner'

"It should not be relevant if you learned the new math or not. Your child should be able to successfully complete their homework without you reteaching them." C. Smalls Hillesheim argues. When she sat down and looked at her teaching experiences and strategies, Hillesheim realized there were things she was saying and doing with her students that could just as easily have been done at home if only parents knew about it. She also grappled with the reality that parents are never explicitly told what their role is in their child's education. They are told, "research shows that parental Involvement is integral!" But in the centuries of time that has passed since the Public school system has been established, no one tells parents what that Involvement should look like. She looked at her decades of tutoring experience and noticed that she was implementing those strategies with those students as well. She then asks herself; why not make it possible for parents to have access to the routines and preparations she uses in her professional life every day? This question prompted Hillesheim to write "The Ultimate Parent Involvement Planner: Building Winning Habits, Creating Strong Foundations" (published by AuthorHouse).

"The Ultimate Parent Involvement Planner" exposes the boundaries of responsibility between student, teacher and parent. It then guides parents to, on a daily basis, understand, plan, and execute effective and efficient strategies within their realm of responsibility." It guides parents to feel confident in initiating communication with school staff and competent in advocating for their child. The book presents a 10-month planner and tracker for parents to train their child to be successful in school. Parents do not have to wing it and wonder if they are missing a step or forgetting to do something for the next school day because the book reminds them of it all. The planner helps parents turn its contents into routines and habits that will help their child learn to become successfully independent time managers, homework finishers and organization masters.

"Parents want their children to be successful in school. Parents want to feel that they are doing everything in their power to keep their child on the path to success," Hillesheim points out. "They pull from positive and negative personal experience, and they hope for and rely on each year's new teachers being willing to openly share and discuss how to help their child at home. There is no single how-to space for parents to turn to on their own. This planner gives strategies, routines and guidance for parents to apply daily with their children at home and with their children's teachers. It boosts communication between parents, children, and teachers which also ensures higher odds of success."

"You are powerful and you are effective. This book is designed to further empower you by showing you that the new math is not your job to teach and by helping you feel consistent in your powerful and effective involvement with your child's education."
