Stories, wisdom and financial tips from a man who's been around longer than TV, chocolate-chip cookies and ballpoint pens. As a child during the Great Depression, author Steve Mucha learned how his parents turned hard times into good times. As a father and businessman, he learned the necessity of financial planning and secrets of selling things. His memoir, "Advice From a 90-Year-Old Man," though, is about much more than money. It's about a plunge on a sled into a frozen lake. A mother's kindness to folks near and far. Catching 100 fish in a single day. A brother's heroism at Pearl Harbor. Fillings picking up radio stations. The joys of family, sports, music and much more. Readers will find lots of answers: What are some secrets to a thriving marriage? What's an easy way to cut your golf score without cheating? What's it like being very, very old? "Advice From a 90-Year-Old Man" is one man's sharing of simple but important lessons, expressed with humor, and including some good, clean jokes.
The purpose of this book is to help you, the parent, grandparent, or guardian, help your child thrive in the classroom. There are seven years of business training experience and twenty-one years of teaching experience behind this book to help you do one thing. That one thing is to help you prepare your child for his or her educational journey through the formal school experience. This is your first best chance to take active control of your child's education. Despite a long history of pedagogical techniques and initiatives that started before John Dewey and included Common Core, Cooperative Learning, New Math, Outcome Based Education, Race to the Top, and No Child Left Behind the fact remains that American education needs an effective overhaul. As parents you do not need to know all of these initiatives, this is for teachers; but you do need to know the constant state of change teachers' work within and how it affects your child. Parents can no longer leave educating young minds solely to the professional teacher or policy makers.
