Part 3: 6 Secrets for Helping Your Son Succeed in School
Part 3: Using the 6 Secrets of Boys Learning for your Son’s School Success
So far in this series, I shared with you how boys learn differently and that–as a parent–you have a tremendous ability to ensure his success when you understand that, build on his learning strengths, and help him to become a passionate confident, independent learner.
I have outlined 6 Secrets for boys learning and pointed out that they can help you to help your son focus, do work without nagging, bring his “game” to learning and bring out the qualities in him that we see in all successful learners.
You may be wondering how you can do this, especially as a busy parent who is not trained as a educator and may not even understand everything your son has to do in school.
This is where many parents struggle, and this is precisely the problem I want to solve for you with the tips and strategies that provide a clear and easy pathway for you.
Parents, like this mom, have found they have made a tremendous difference in their son’s lives.
I have put together a Free 2 Part Video series that illustrates some of these and gives you complete instructions on using them. I encourage you to try it out and see how easy they are!

- Movement: “Toss and Talk” – A great strategy for making homework fun and fast!
- Game: “Beat the Clock” – Leverage the power of testosterone to have your son focus and put greater effort into his learning…
- Humor: “Finding the Funny Side” – Learn how tickling his funny bone can make life easier for him and you when he has to get down to work on an assignment or project.
Part 2: 6 Secret Advanced Strategies
This video focuses on the secrets of Challenge, Mastery and Meaning which give your son the the tools that help him to develop perseverance, passion, and long term commitment to learning. Sample strategies here include:
