Jane and I are travelling a lot these days. We have been invited into many schools to promote our seminars and connect with like-hearted teachers/principals regarding the parental role in a child's education. It is so gradtifying when people acknowledge there definitely is a literacy problems and are so willing to step up to the plate, take some responsiblilty and say we are all in this together so how can we improve this situation. The American mantra these days is "Yes, we can!" We must adopt this positive attitude and know that as parents, homes and communities work together that "Yes, we can get this job done!" The other American candiate wrote a book - "It takes a village to raise a child!" and she was absolutely right!
My vote is to admit we are experiencing difficulty getting kids to read well, gather together to stratigize how we can fix this dilemma and with loving, caring support from everyone get our little kids (and yes, even our older kids and adults) reading successfully. Let me know what you think. Blessings to you today.
Remember, that together YES WE CAN!
