Maximise Your Child's Performance: A Concise Guide to Unlocking their Potential by Jennie Segar is a self-help guide for parents and guardians to assist in heightening the potential for success in education beyond what they may or may not already be achieving. The book is broken down into 10 key areas and each taps into a different intellectual growth area to balance out the child's overall experience. These are: Working as a team, which emphasizes the importance of an adult-child partnership over “because I said so”, Games for Grey Matter and what it unlocks, Sports for Smarts, Music, Sharing Stories, Creativity, Free time with both organized and free play, Technology and using it efficiently, Animal Assets and, finally, a focus on health and the importance of nutrition in Great Building Blocks.
As a parent with a child in the ideal age group to start with the program Jennie Segar has put together, Maximise Your Child's Performance comes at a perfect time. I think most readers will find bits and bobs that they already use, or like myself, already know they should be doing but are not sure how to implement them. There will also be a lot that is new and this is where Segar's format really comes in handy. The information and tips are not strictly linear so we are able to pick up where we feel will most immediately benefit our children first. For me, that was actually getting her vitamins in order—a small step that was partly completed with a 30-minute stroll around the local health store. I also selected a bedtime book that I had always considered her too young for, thinking it would be another year before she could tackle it. Imagine my surprise when she read through it with very little help! I can see how this book will have a positive impact on our family life and am certain others who read it will feel the same way. Very highly recommended.
