Although parents send their children off to school everyday and expect them to do well, their involvement can add an important extra ingredient that will increase their children's success. It has been proven that parent participation is the ingredient that makes the difference. Parents' active participation with their child's education at home and in school brings great rewards and can have a significant impact on their children's lives.

Turn your passion into your dream jobWhere's your passion?

Is it in the work that you do on a daily basis? Are you still trying to figure out how to turn that passion into a job? Then you are not alone. There are so many people who go to work and daydream about one day doing what they love to do. They dream about turning that passion into a profitable business for themselves and their families. And then there are those who aren't in it for the money. They just want to do what makes them happy or what would bring some happiness to someone else.
