Albert presents a collection of articles laden with gems, -including the single most important lesson to teach a child. -Topics include: How children learn to read. "Perfection" -- Why children are perfectionists and how to respond. How to encourage your child to seek greater challenges and achievements. Teens and what to do about them. Why the testing is destroying our schools. "Once again David Albert applies his genius to children." -- John Gatto, -author of the bestseller, Dumbing Us Down
