A groundbreaking approach to building learning habits for life, based on a major new study revealing what works - and what doesn't

Life is different for kids today. Between standardized testing, the Common Core Curriculum, copious homework assignments, and seemingly endless amounts of "screen time," it's hard for kids - and parents - to know what's most essential. How can parents help their kids succeed - not just do well "on the test" -- but develop the learning habits they'll need to thrive throughout their lives?

This important and parent-friendly book presents new solutions based on the largest study of family routines ever conducted. The Learning Habit offers a blueprint for navigating the maze of homework, media use, and the everyday stress that families with school-age children face; turning those "stress times" into opportunities to develop the eight critical skills kids will need to succeed in college and in the highly competitive job market of tomorrow - skills including concentration and focus, time management, decision-making, goal-setting, and self-reliance. Along with hands-on advice and compelling real-life case studies, the book includes 21 fun family challenges for parents and kids, bringing together the latest research with simple everyday solutions to help kids thrive, academically and beyond.
