Taking a distinct approach that draws on the work of educators, historians, and psychologists -- along with her own research on over 100 families -- her book discusses how parents can expose their children to healthy competition, how they can make more informed decisions about what instructor is right for a child, and how they can help a child select the best after-school activity for him or her.
