A Parent's Playbook for Learning

A Parent's Playbook for Learning
Author: Jen Lilienstein
Genre: Nonfiction/Parenting


This is an amazing book and tool not only for parents, but for anyone that wants to learn.  By applying the information that is easily understood, Lilienstein allows us to improve our approach to our own learning as well as understanding our children and anyone else we encounter.  

The set-up of this book enables the reader to maneuver throughout it and locate what applies to their situation and then discover the other information later.  I completely enjoyed it the first time and every other time I've gone back to it!

About the Book

The personality type based techniques revealed in A Parent‘s Playbook for Learning (Youtube video!) will teach parents specific, research-backed, actionable strategies amassed from nearly 100 reference texts with respect to:

* How to create a learning environment that allows their unique child to excel and develop confidence in his or her abilities.

* How to support and encourage their child’s education in ways that are best for him or her.

* How to teach their child the most effective learning strategies for him or her, as well as how and when to use those strategies.

The Playbook reveals personality-based tools, techniques and strategies that help parents play to their kids’ innate learning strengths.  Study after study highlights the importance of parental involvement in their child’s education. In fact, BYU, UCI and NC State’s most recent research found that “parental involvement is a more significant factor in a child’s academic performance than the qualities of the school itself.” (October 2012) Research like this reinforces that parents can no longer afford to sit on the sidelines when it comes to educating their children. Amassed from nearly 100 reference texts, the Parent’s Playbook for Learning shows parents exactly how to support and encourage a child’s education in the ways that are best for him or her.

Says author Jen Lilienstein, “As parents, we have all been there. Once our wee ones emerged from the womb, we started devouring books and websites that would tell us whether co-sleeping, the No Cry Sleep Solution or Ferberizing our baby would be best. As they grew, we started to understand that their personalities played a big part in what parenting approaches would be most effective for them.  Personality type plays a huge role in what careers appeal to us, who we select as our friends, and which partner with whom we choose to spend our lives. But, we often forget that personality type also matters in learning. Just as we naturally approach problems differently as adults, kids also look at problems and concepts differently.”

Ms. Lilienstein’s new book examines how to best approach everything from getting organized and time management to homework practice, test prep, approaching new concepts, enrichment activities, group learning, motivation, and handling failures based on the child’s personality type. A Parent’s Playbook for Learning is available on,, Kobo, Smashwords, and at bookstores nationwide.
