This Week's Independent Evaluators

Behavior Change Communications Specialist, M.Ed.

"The principle component that impressed me the most with How to be a Parent Champion was how the book is not designed to be a 'fix-it-all' solution for parents.  You have to get to the root of the cause before you can fully understand how to work with it.  You will note I didn't use the word 'fix'.  

How to be a Parent Champion reverses today's parents' thinking and drops the seeds to create a desire to enlarge the potential in their lives. As they progress in their 'awakening' they begin to see how as they see new horizons of growth and understanding as parents, the changes in their lives influence their children. What was once seen as a challenge of the nerves transforms into an ever-increasing abundant potential for the entire family and all we come in contact with."

"How to be a Parent Champion conveys a conceptualization of dynamic association by way of individual key concepts.  These concepts serve as stepping stones to further realization for parents.  One of the most impressive ideas in the book was 'The Coaching Contract.'  It carefully detailed an agreement to work together for (x) amount of minutes on (y) # of days to create a 'different' working relationship and based on the coaching model a better outcome for the future."

"Rather than write a book that serves as a band-aid fix that will allow an injury to become infected and fester, How to be a Parent Champion influences the creation of a desire to learn more. Something within our being is struck with a fancy for more learning, more potential, and most important of all, the betterment that that is shared with everyone they are in contact with, starting with their spouse and children. I can speak for myself as proof with the application of this book's principles in my own family as I have been evaluating it."

Professor Emeritus of Psychology Ph.D. / Educational Theory Specialist, Ed.D.

After reading and applying what is learned  from 'How to be a Parent Champion', a substantial contribution to the fulfillment of need for both parents and children is actualized."

"The determinative structure for development of change in reading How to be a Parent Champion influences progressive growth and improvement. 'How to be a Parent Champion' was designed to assist with development of a better understanding as a parent.  As with many other things in life, it has become much more.  In fact, 'How to be a Parent Champion' is a recipe book for self-empowerment and realization in life at home and society at large."

How to be a Parent Champion has literally re-defined the the possibilities with PROGRESSIVE GROWTH.  As mentioned repeatedly prior to this, How to be a Parent Champion identifies potential in one's life and instills a desire to improve.  Before that though, a reader is influenced to humble themselves and be willing to learn.  You can't make changes without the willingness to learn.

READABILITY: Rating Level - [4.5] an image of 4.5 gold  stars

In our evaluation category definition, readability consists of multiple factors: visual ease of reading, text flow and structure, response level from reading, and level of bleed of text from opposite face of page. (ie; A page may have a diagram but if the text from the opposite face of the page is all text and is too evident when looking at diagram or illustration, a percentage of readability/effectiveness can be lost.)

READABILITY posed a very compelling challenge in our evaluation of How to be a Parent Champion.  While the content on the opposite facing page had our readers quite captivated, there was clear evidence of a minor distraction from the text "ghosting" from the opposite facing page. This proved to be a factor which required us to spend a much more lengthy study of individuals reading the book. 

After reviewing the reports from our case study results for How to be a Parent Champion, it was promptly determined that there is in fact a minor distraction that occurs on some of the pages which had diagrams/illustrations yet the distraction was to a minimal degree. So How to be a Parent Champion was dinged for only a 1/2 of a digit in it scoring.

How to be a Parent Champion successfully passed this category of evaluation with an outstanding score of [4.5] Stars in this category for READABILITY.

RESPONSE LEVEL: Rating Level - [5] an image of 5 gold  stars

RESPONSE LEVEL proved to be one of the more appealing evaluation categories in our evaluation of How to be a Parent Champion. How can you define response level other than the amount of reaction/response with each sentence, chapter, or page of the book?  Regardless of the age or sex of the individuals reading How to be a Parent Champion, the response level remained consistent. 

After but a few short minutes past reading the preface of the book, it was evident that the reader would not be likely to be paying attention to anything else for a while.  For some of the individuals they would on occasion make a comment accented with excitement in their reading while others remained completely engrossed in the book.  In the case of a something to be drawn upon or filled out, we had copied those pages onto sheets for each of the individuals participating.

There were so many details associated with this evaluation category results it would be far from logical to even think of trying to cover it all. I jut wish we were able to provide you with so many more of the details but it is far more simple to just have you visit of How to be a Parent Champion, read about it and buy the book to find out why so many people were so enraptured in the excitement within the book just waiting to be discovered.
