Marcia Tate's Preparing Children for Success in School and Life: 20 Ways to Enhance Your Child's Brain Power is an authoritative and practical guide for parents who are interested in creating a brain-compatible home environment conducive to the optimal growth and development of their children. In this collection of recommended best practices, Tate draws on what we know about how our brains behave and learn, the latest research in human growth and development, and her 30 years of being a mother to three to explain how parents can design a brain-compatible environment, put a plan into place to help children develop character and responsible behavior, and use key strategies that grow children's brain cells while working with them at home. Similar in format to Tate's other books, Preparing Children for Success in School and Life: 20 Ways to Enhance Your Child's Brain Power will define recommended practices, share research from the fields of psychology and education to demonstrate why the practices should be used, and provide numerous examples on the use of the practice in the home environment.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book offers practical ideas for parents to facilitate children's growth as they mature and develop thinking skills, including how to best work with schools without taking over for them." -- Nic Cooper, Author of How to Keep Being a Parent...When Your Child Stops Being a Child
"Written in a conversational style, the chapters flow and the information is cumulative. The author discovered the importance of the brain as it applies to learning and a successful life and then translated the information into an understandable text that is parent and teacher friendly. I love this book." -- Patricia Baker, Teacher
"After Dr. Tate presented 20 Ways to Increase Your Child's Brain Power at our school, a father informed me he planned to re-paint his home because Dr. Tate spoke about how color influences children. How great is that? The parents were so excited about this interactive workshop! Many inquired if a date had been scheduled for Dr. Tate's return visit." -- Charlene Christian-Andrews, Staff Development Coordinator
"This book is an example of how powerful Marcia Tate's brain-based strategies are when applied in the lives of our children. While targeting parents, her strategies are presented in a practical, down-to-earth manner that recognizes that parents are a child's first and most enduring teachers." -- Gina Humphries, Academically/Intellectually Gifted Coordinator
"Marcia Tate brings the same excitement for brain-compatible teaching strategies to parents that she has shown educators for years. She makes all of us-educators and parents alike-think about how we can help our students become successful in school and throughout their lives!" -- Kathy Bowie, Curriculum Facilitator
