Kids Get A's and B's When Their Dads Help Teach Them
By: Patrick Joseph U. Eguogwu, Jr.
About the Book
Everyone thought seven-year-old John would not graduate from high school because his grades were very poor. His teachers used different methods to help him, but nothing worked. One of his teachers then figured out that little John was not getting help with his homework at home and that was why he wasn’t even doing his homework at all. After the teacher got his parents involved with John’s academics, his grades improved considerably. When John’s dad made it a duty to read to John and to teach him at home after school, John started getting A’s and B’s and that academic success continued to his college years.
The author knew students in his school that were not doing well academically and, after speaking with them, the author realized that most of them were not being taught by a parent at home. He then advised some of them to tell their dads to be help them with their homework. When their dads got involved, these students started getting A’s and B’s. The author felt the push to educate kids and parents about the huge benefits to kids’ success when their dads help teach them. The book talked about different scenarios parents could use to get their kids to like reading, writing, and school.
