MONTREAL, NOVEMBER 5, 2010 –   The Central Parents Committee of the English Montreal School Board (EMSB) will host the official launch of Carolyn Melmed’s new DVD: Unleashing Your Child’s Potential on Thursday, November 11 at 6000 Fielding Avenue in N.D.G. There is no admission charge and a complimentary light buffet will be served  at 6:15 p.m., 30 minutes before the start of the program.

A teacher and founding member of the Lansdowne Centre, Ms. Melmed knows that success in school requires good study habits and that a strong relationship between students, parents, and teachers is essential to effective learning. Unleashing Your Child’s Potential is a comprehensive instructional guide that focuses on how parents can become good coaches, motivate their children and provide them with learning methods, a sense of discipline and effective communication skills. Parents will learn how to help their children evolve from being dependent on parents and teachers, to becoming independent learners, and ultimately to achieve higher grades and become more successful students.  Parents can learn how to set up a good learning environment at home, an effective homework routine and how to prepare for parent/teacher interviews.

“I believe that learning is a shared responsibility and that parents must work together with their children to optimize their learning potential and academic performance,” says Ms. Melmed. “I was compelled to produce this DVD because of the lack of resources for parents, despite their being indispensable in the learning process.”
