Dawna Markova is revolutionizing the way parents approach their children’s education. A leading educator and psychologist, she has noticed that parents tend to focus on correcting their children’s weaknesses. But in this groundbreaking book based on the world-renowned SMARTWired program, Dr. Markova demonstrates a more effective strategy that centers on building a child’s strengths. This approach not only helps children discover their passion and purpose in life, but it also instills in them a strong sense of self-worth–which in turn makes them highly motivated to learn.

A longtime teacher, Dr. Markova understands that by recognizing and developing children’s unique assets, parents can help them succeed not just in school but in life. She cites compelling anecdotes across all age groups and reveals practical strategies: the essential principles of the SMARTWired approach to learning, the three kinds of attention the human brain uses, and the five categories of children’s assets. Along the way, you will discover how to

• identify and support your child’s hidden talents
• help your child make sound decisions with confidence
• communicate on the same wavelength with your child for better mutual understanding
• nurture your child’s assets in partnerships with schools, mentors, coaches, and other resources
• free your child from societal expectations

An impassioned call to arms backed by a point-by-point plan, The SMART Parenting Revolution provides the road map for all parents looking to develop their children’s full potential.
