Review Quotes

Tony Yarber, former Jackson Mayor, shared on social media that he views Parent Support as a “pocket cheat sheet on helping your child succeed in school”. 

Director of Counselors and Gifted Education contact for Rankin County School District, Dr. Charlotte Christian, highlighted the fact that Parent Support is divided into lessons for each topic. Dr. Christian also mentioned the tool offers “excellent strategies in helping children and parents be successful in the education process”. 

Brandon Mayor, Butch Lee, enjoyed Parent Support’s simplicity and that the format doesn’t bombard the reader”. His closing remarks were: “If every child was exposed to half of these steps through their adolescent years, our world would be a better place”. 

Dr. Katie Novak, best-selling author, assistant superintendent, and education consultant, offered an in-depth response to Parent Support. Dr. Novak’s response is the most recent feedback received since publishing an e-course to accompany Parent Support.  She shares the vision of parents reading Parent Support together in groups while leveraging an online platform to discuss and share lessons that are implemented at home. 


Excerpts from the Book

We don’t want awareness of a child’s preferred learning style to keep us from exploring learning activities that may be a little uncomfortable. For example, let’s say you find that little Aziza is an auditory learner.  She still needs exposure to a variety of learning activities, such as naturalist activities and intra-personal activities, to improve her flexibility as a learner. We want to meet learners were they are and encourage growth.

-Jillian Smart, Parent Support

Although, I advocate allowing children to be children, it is helpful to practice skills daily.  The brain cannot get better at doing a thing that is not practiced frequently. 

-Jillian Smart, Parent Support

Changing how we think is challenging. Sure, there are supposed to be fun times; we want learning to be fun. Still, it’s impractical to expect to have fun over the duration of a challenging process. Embracing discomfort is key to gaining independence as a learner.

-Jillian Smart, Parent Support
