Every parent wants to give their children the life they deserve and a positive future. It’s possible that during our childhood we experienced educational gaps where our parents have missed passing down knowledge and important life lessons.

It’s not their fault, they most likely weren’t taught those lessons by their parents, who weren’t taught by their parents and the list goes back generation by generation.

So, how is it that we can teach children lessons about something that we never learnt ourselves as a child?

Well, we learn how to as an adult, from people like our special guest.

Today we welcome John Hattie, one of the world’s best known and most widely read education experts. His Visible Learning series of books have been translated into 29 different languages and sold over 1 million copies.

John is a passionate education expert who will help us learn how we can close that gap through their newly launched book that is aimed to help support parents in children with a successful and happy life.

We ask John questions including:
