Mamas on Magic 107.9: What helps kids succeed in school

Happy Monday, NWA mamas!

This week in our Mamas on Magic 107.9 segment we’re talking about kids and a very important part of our their lives – school.

Education experts are always researching how kids learn best — and what we can do as parents to help them get the kind of education they need.

We talked on the air about some of the cool research from the book How Children Succeed by Paul Tough. Turns out the qualities that help kids succeed have less to do with an A+ on every test and more to do with intangibles like character and curiosity.
