The Family Learning Company
Family learning is what happens when parents help their children learn to read and write, and what happens when children motivate and help their parents learn to read and write better. Family learning is what happens when people who love and care about each other help each other to master reading and writing: two essential, but difficult, skills. Family learning is what happens when we empower parents and children to learn together.
Family learning programs achieve better outcomes by having parents help their children to stick with their education until they are fully literate, and by having children help their parents if they are not yet literate. Learning to read and write well is a long, difficult project – too difficult for most people to complete on their own. When family members continuously push, prod, help and encourage their loved ones to keep at it, they succeed. The payoff is higher wages, better quality of life and a better life for the next generation of family members.
We build the world’s first family learning software. Software is available to use anytime, anywhere. It provides videos to help parents learn how to help their children. And, it provides thousands of learning activities to share and master. Our family learning software is your tool to help your family learn, grow and thrive!
