As parents we all want our children to develop and to realise all the dreams they have for themselves. The key is learning, and the fact is that children learn in different ways. The current one-size-fits-all teaching style can leave students behind or create frustration and anger.The 'Mercury Model', introduced in Learning Without Tears, is the first accurate and straightforward way to easily identify and accurately describe children's unique learning styles and learning requirements. Using no specialist questionnaires, ambiguous observations or website assessments, this book provides everything you need to understand exactly how your children's minds tick. It invites parents to compare their own profiles with their children's and see how to best approach and interact with each one. Knowing how to tailor your message for the easiest uptake by each child, allows you to assist in their leaning and to kick start their education..The Mercury Model gives children permission to think in their own ways, empowering them and allowing them to connect with their innate mental strengths. It provides them with a personal life-long tool for fulfilling their own dreams and ambitions.Looking at all the learning styles within your family, understanding how each person thinks, is the first step toward resolving all manner of tensions.
