A practical guide for parents on how to balance the pressures of academic excellence with both encouragement and compassion. I was able to witness how this approach nurtured a confident, kind, and happy child resulting in admission to a prestigious Computer Science program in an Ivy League school.

Which would you choose for your child? This book provides the substrate for admission to any school, not just the Ivy league, and most importantly results in a child who will understand work-life balance. A must read for any parent.”’’
