“Why Bad Grades Happen to Good Kids” by Drs. Linda and Al Silbert looks at how to help educate your child in a whole new way. I first became familiar with their work when a friend recommended them to me years ago. Their user-friendly approach to helping children was so good, I found that I could actually help my kids. What’s great about their philosophy is that it not only strengthens whatever academic weakness your child has, be it English, science or math, but it takes his or her learning and organizational skills to a new level. -from the Foreword, Al Roker, NBC Today show

Linda and Alvin Silbert use the wisdom gained over many years of experience to help parents nurture their children to become better students and, more importantly, to lead happier and more fulfilling lives.

Kalikow, M.D., Psychiatrist, Author of “Your Child in the Balance”
