Children become fluent in reading with practice, practice, practice. I’ve used these free, engaging reading games to hold their attention and keep them motivated. They are among the best methods for turning the hard work of learning to read into play. So, is a one-time $72.95 investment in your child’s future worth it? If you ask me, this kind of opportunity would be well worth it at ten times the cost. Our children are the future of this world and nothing is too good for them. The fact of the matter is that you just can’t put a price on a good education. Giving your kid the power of putting their future in their own hands turns $72.95 into a mere pittance: a drop in the bucket.

Because my parents were convinced college was out of their financial reach and I had no one countering that belief, I began working full time after graduation and going to junior college part time. In my first classes, I struggled with procedural issues. I didn’t know how to write a paper to the professor’s liking, as everyone around me did. I didn’t participate in discussions because the other students seemed to be smarter than I and I was intimidated. I almost failed US History because I didn’t have the base of knowledge that was expected, as my homeschool curriculum spent a lot of time focusing on church and Christian history to the detriment of teaching basic events and ideas.

I have a good friend who worked in the same firm of solicitors as me. She had been to India, and seen how poor the people in rural villages were. She was on a very low income as a trainee solicitor, but, nonetheless she set up a regular payment of £100 a month to help pay for a teacher and school in an Indian village. She must have helped to change the lives of many children by her generous act. Now she is working in an international organization, and I am sure she is spreading her humane influence further.

Just to make things clear: countries that are more social or socialist in the modern sense of the word tend to have better education, not worse. It’s absolutely moronic to say socialist thinking values mediocrity. Read up on countries like Finland, their values and their educational systems before you embarrass yourself more.

Here is a brief quiz so that you can see how prepared you are for success. As you look them over, give yourself points on a scale from 10 (you do this all the time) to 0 (you never do this). Think of your score as a golf score: the smaller, the better. This is for your own benefit, and you will never have to reveal the numbers you come up with.
