Parent helping child do research for homeork, because mom does not know how to teach the child to do it herself

Parenting Power

When your child is looking to you for research help, are you able to give it? Many parents feel nervous that their own skills are not up to the task, and worry that they will lose their child's respect if they cannot find information quickly. What is more, busy parents often do not have time to stand over their children and micro-manage the research process, but find themselves frustrated when they try to answer kids' questions about search.

You should not be held prisoner by fear and frustration. Better yet, by learning the basics of online search, you not only become better equipped to help your children, but improve your own online experiences, as well!

Beat the odds.

Let To The Point Research teach you the tips and tricks that research professionals use: when to use different search engines, the tools that make searches yield precise results, and strategiesfor moving beyond the Web to lesser-known sources.
