Welcome to our newly created “Parenting for Education(PFE)” website. Until today, PFE has been a part of the Eschar Publications website, and, indeed, Eschar Publications publishes all of the “Parenting for Education” books and materials. Because of our ability to address some of the needs faced by parents and children, we decided to give PFE its own space.Having its own space means that we will mainly concentrate on aspects of learning and education that can be applied to your role as parents.
We hope you will enjoy coming to the PFE website and finding something of value for you, your child, and family.
Providing information for your child’s educational journey is our chief concern. We have written some books that may benefit your child’s learning goals, and we have written articles that specifically look at different aspects of the learning process. Some articles address trouble zones where learners get stuck and trapped. In embracing our expanded role, we want to bring something more to you.
Our more lies in what you will find in addition to the products that we offer for sale. You will find a children’s activity page, which will provide art, science, social studies, music, craft, or math. Purposefully, we include “PFE Tips.” Please review the “PFE Tips” to determine whether you can use these short ideas, which are meant to offer insight, encouragement, or how-to plans. Occasionally, we will share abstract notes from educational research, or we will share special notes for your college bound students. Perhaps, a few articles slanted toward grandparents or nannies will come to your attention.
If you want to share a photo of your family and tell us something positive about an adventure or trip that you have engaged in, we would love to hear from you. We will label this as a “Bulletin Board for Parents.”
Of note, “Parenting for Education” or “PFE” is not new. We have been around for over thirty years, having actuallystarted back in 1983 when a local radio station asked me to create a program of my choosing. While I passionately believed that placing education as a priority in family living was important, I did not have the resources to reach as many people as I would have liked. Also, like many of you, I had to raise a family and work outside my home. So, I talked on the radio for a while, wrote a newspaper column, wrote a magazine column, developed PFE Workshops, and wrote a book on Parenting for Education—all with the hope of reaching families.
As you can see, I still believe that your job as parents is very important in the educational process. My work recognizes all the caregivers for education—parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nannies, babysitters, teachers, daycare providers, and all others who love and administer to the learning needs of all children. Consequently, my work envelops children who attend public schools, private schools, other types of schools, and home schools.
Thank you for coming to the “PFE—Parenting for Education” Website.
