(As a by-product/added benefit, this is also the quickest ramp-up on the subject on using project management skills in your everyday life.) I must clarify that I use the phrase “parent/caregiver” inclusively and pervasively throughout this book―as I realize you may be a working parent, stay-at-home parent, military parent, homeschooling parent, special needs parent, single parent, parent of multiples, custodial grandparent, aunt/uncle, adoptive parent, foster parent, guardian or any other type or combination of parental role I am not meaning to exclude. My solutions are applicable and targeted across all family structures and types. I don't know about you, but I mostly exist in a shortfall of time. That's why I wrote this book as a fast, yet informative read, just one parent talking to another (in a fun, conversational manner), all in the name of helping your child/children have a more peaceful, enjoyable school journey. Join me, and I will help you get there.
