Society fails to address many educational issues, leaving families very vulnerable.

Issue #1: One major issue in our educational system is illiteracy and lack of reading.  Many children are reluctant to read because they either struggle decoding words or they find that the material is boring.  Parents need to build reading into their child’s daily regimen.   Start off by encouraging your child to read at least 15 minutes per day.  Overtime, increase it to an hour per day.  Before you know it, your child will be reading one book per week.

Tip #1: Make sure to purchase high interest, educational, humorous and inspiring literature that encourages your child to turn off the television and pick up a book.
