Authoritative parenting style is crucial to success in parenting but adopting a particular style is more or less dependent upon a child’s attitude and outcomes. Learn more about parenting styles here: http://goo.gl/XdPSPK

For NYC parents, Gifted and Talented admission for fourth and fifth grades.  "Knowledge is power!" Happy parenting!

http://schools.nyc.gov/ChoicesEnrollment/GiftedandTalented/default.htm

Dear Mongkol,

If your child is entering fourth or fifth grade in the 2015-2016 school year, you can start the admissions process for placement in citywide and district Gifted & Talented programs on Monday, May 11.

Parents of eligible children may submit a Request for Placement (RFP) in person at a Family Welcome Center. The deadline for submitting a RFP is Friday, May 22, 2015.

Eligibility will be determined by multiple measures:

2015 New York State English Language Arts (ELA) and Math scores
2015 Report Card Grades
Descriptors of Exceptional Characteristics provided by the student’s teacher
All measures are weighted equally. After submitting a RFP, your child’s school will be prompted to submit the Descriptors of Exceptional Characteristics form. Eligible students will be provided with a list of programs over the summer and may submit an application at that time. You’ll receive a decision letter in the late summer or early fall.

Eligibility for students not currently enrolled in public school (e.g., private, parochial, home school, etc.) is established through a review of the three measures stated above. In the absence of state tests, parents will be contacted to submit objective assessment data that demonstrates advanced performance in ELA and Math.

Sincerely,
Elementary School Admissions Team

Most people think aggression means hitting and causing physical harm. Aggression is also when your child starts shouting and yelling or even crying out loudly.

On her first day as a principal, she was told by her student "This is not a school!". With her strong leadership, determination to improve and unconditional love to her students, she fixed a broken school in one year.

For parents, the first teacher of our children, the same techniques can be used in your household as well. You will be amazed how it works very well. Happy Parenting!  

http://www.ted.com/talks/linda_cliatt_wayman_how_to_fix_a_broken_school_lead_fearlessly_love_hard
On Linda Cliatt-Wayman’s first day as principal at a failing high school in North Philadelphia, she was determined to lay down the law. But she soon realized the job was more complex than she thought. With palpable passion, she shares the three principles that helped her turn around three schools labeled “low-performing and persistently dangerous.” Her fearless determination to lead — and to love the students, no matter what — is a model for lead...

Teenagers are a complete mess when it comes to pursuing technological gadgets, not realizing their parameters. It’s very easy to say that with all these apps offered by various tech geeks, kids eventually forget unintentionally that their usage knows no limits.

Don't forget to tell your child that you love them after you discipline them. Remind them that just because we discipline them doesn't mean we love them less than before.

Getting angry occasionally is normal in growing kids, but if your child is disrespectful more often and you are getting complaints from his school for misbehaving and is not even sorry for his behavior then you must start using some smart and practical ways to treat them.
See how:

I'm not sure whether I totally agree that the problem is the education model. I do know that parents and teachers can play very significant roles in promoting creativity and entrepreneurship. If you don't know how to promote, at least don't say "it is impossible"; "it is a crazy idea"; "why don't you be like others". Happy parenting ;-)

The current model of education in the United States is stifling the creative soul of our children. While this is troubling for a variety of reasons, it also has significant economic consequences for the future of our country. America has long been unique because of its remarkable ingenuity, innovative capacity [...]

More likely it is the specific misuse of standardized tests that is the problem rather than the general issue of the US "education model"
