About This Site
Stress Relief!

 
     Thank heavens, we didn't have to fix the system to help ourselves have better lives!
 
      This site did not need to be popular, slick or commercial to be effective.  It was only designed to provide some information with as little conflict of interest as possible.  It can't help everybody which is why it doesn't work in the public school system. Reality is that this site's information may only match about 10% of the population. Whereas, schools are for everybody. Again, this site can not replace schools or teachers.  Most schools and teachers do a wonderful job with what they have available.  The site is simply an independent information resource designed to help families that it matches. The site is self sustaining.  Including ads, corporate sponsorships, government subsidies, charitable contributions, blogging or secret tracking could actually harm its credibility.
 
    With that in mind, please be aware that although this site doesn't do any secret stalking, other entities may not have the same values and may be tracking you.  It is probably a good idea to know what they are doing with the information - so that you can protect yourself.
 
 
    The new education model is awesome!  However, it requires a different set of skills than traditional education models.  With a little effort, many families can make themselves much more successful much sooner on their own than they can waiting for the government, a large corporation or some other bureaucratic entity to fix it for them.  
 
      Thank you ahead of time for having kept this site independent and yourself free to chose your own future.  That takes a lot of work.  Good for you in doing it!
 
    Just to reiterate, this website is not designed to replace schools or teachers.  Most schools and teachers do the best job they can with what they have available.  They just can't be all things to all people.  In addition, many schools have mandated priorities that don't necessarily match all students.  Teachers are expected to fix problems created by other people and some of those problems can't actually be fixed.  Public schools are part of the social welfare infrastructure.  Their quality is dependent on the caring, commitment and intellect of the whole community - the taxpayers, their public leaders and all the participating families.  It is up to the participants to maximize their outcomes.  This website has practical information to help parents and students succeed when the system isn't ideal for them.  However, everyone is different. Parents and students must decide which strategies will work best for them. 
 
Note: Because the majority of my work is off the 'net and requires most of my focus, this site has been made available to help people succeed no matter their income level or formal education.  Thank you for understanding that staying good at what I do is a very high priority.   It takes the almost all of my time and energy.
  

 
   Please remember, it isn't how much money people have, it is how they used it that matters most.  How people make and use their money tells you a lot about their real priorities. If you invest in the right people, you will probably have a much nicer life.

(And, to everyone who has already spread the word, thank you.  This site didn't have to be popular to help you and your friends.  It only had to work for you.  Anyone is welcome to participate.  The more people who know, the faster your world changes.) 

Please remember that no person or organization can be all things to all people. 
Everyone is different.  It is up to parents and teens to decide who they listen to and what they learn to do.  It is wise to have more than one resource.
