A+ Parenting with Eva Moskowitz

A+ Parenting with Eva Moskowitz
Dr. Dan interviews Eva Moskowitz, founder and CEO of Success Academy, about how parents can instill a lifelong love of learning in their children. They discuss her new book  A+ PARENTING: The Surprisingly Fun Guide to Raising Surprisingly Smart Kids and teach listeners that regardless of where you live, your work-parent balance, or the age of your children, you can raise smart, successful, and intellectually engaged children. Dr. Dan and Eva go on to discuss Eva’s most important message: that parents can and should play a critical role in their children’s intellectual development. Children who continue to learn when they are outside of school will make far more progress than those who don’t, but parents need not attempt to recreate school at home. Instead, they can encourage their children to engage in fun activities that will have a huge impact on their creativity, intellectual curiosity, and attention span. Eva Moskowitz founded Success Academy Charter Schools in 2006. Success Academy has become one of the fastest-growing, highest-performing public charter school networks in the country, with more than 50 schools enrolling over 20,000 students.   As a national leader, Eva speaks to diverse groups across the country and has shared her expertise with thousands of educators and visitors from around the world. She has testified before Congress about education and economics, and has worked with political leaders of both parties — from presidents and governors to mayors and state legislators — to advocate for children’s educational futures.
