我们在海外的华裔家长在儿童家庭和学校教育方面有许多成功的经验,值得我们的总结和分享。但是由于东西文化的巨大差异和社会环境的日新月异,我们也面临着许多困惑和挑战: 如何认识美国学校教育的理念与实践,如何欣赏孩子的个性和特长,如何引导孩子主动有效地地学习,如何促进孩子的社会交际能力的提高,如何为孩子的进入高等学校出谋划策, 如何与孩子一起分享亲子交流和成长的快乐。成功的儿童教育既是解决孩子成长中所面临的具体问题, 又是一个环环相套的整体家庭教育理念与实践的过程。
我们每个家长都是家庭教育公司的创始人, 首席执行官和首席教育专家。我们的职责就是要使我们的孩子快乐健康的成长,同时又拥有扎实的知识基础和敏锐的思维能力。这对我们大部分的家长来说是一个全新而又责任重大的创业过程,需要我们首先努力提升自己的家教知识与技能。这门家教课程就是提供这样一个平台和讲台,让感兴趣的家长每周聚集在一起进行交流,磋商,和共同探讨,每个参与的家长既是学生,也是先生,同时也会根据需求提供个别家长的家教咨询。
