The teachability of a child is the single most important factor in learning success. The psychological determinants that govern a child’s capacity to learn are ideally fostered and cultivated in the home. What is the role of the parent in helping their child be ‘school ready’ and surviving the ‘ups and downs’ that come with it?  How do we measure success in a way that goes beyond test scores and academic assessments and focuses on the realization of human potential?  This presentation will tease apart the psychological determinants behind a child’s learning success and the role of parents in getting them there.
