Discover New Ways To Learn

There are lots of ways you can help kids learn better so that they can excel in school and go on to promising careers. However, before we look at some of the ways you can help children learn, it’s important to understand that all children learn differently. This means that some children won’t find learning in one way as easy others and it’s why certain kids always struggle in school. If they are being taught in a way that doesn’t mesh with how their mind operating, they’ll find it difficult to hold information. Luckily, there are lots of different ways to learn and at least one is going to help your child.

Through Music

Who says the Disney Channel isn’t educational? In one old memorable episode of Hannah Montana, the titular character was able to pass a difficult test by putting all the bones into a song. It might sound like silly after school nonsense, but actually, research shows adding a rhythm to information can help people learn. So, if you’re a little creative, you might be able to help your child learn by creating a song with them or even just a rhyme.

As well as this other studies have shown evidence that learning a musical instrument can actually improve a child’s cognitive ability.

Expanding Vocabulary

If you’re looking to improve your child’s skill in English, you might want to think about looking at boosting their vocabulary beyond the level of a typical kid. One way to do this is by buying them a word a day calendar for their desk at home. Since there are 365 days in a year, there’s a huge potential there. Of course, you can help take that idea one step further by using a service that provides the word and example sentences of how it’s used. This can be even more beneficial and will allow your child to impress their English teacher in no time.

Real Life Puzzles

A lot of parents have expressed their disappointment that children are not being taught skills in school that could help them in real life. For instance, children are taught all about the Pythagorean theorem, an arguably completely useless skill for anyone other than mathematicians. Instead, many parents feel teachers could be using that time to teach children about how to calculate how much they owe in tax or Vat charges. However, you can always teach your children about these sums in your own time. That way, you can improve their mathematical skill and give them the vital knowledge they will need later in life.

Sweet Dreams

Did you know that one of the best ways to learn is while you’re asleep? It’s true, we absorb an incredible amount of information when we’re fast asleep in bed. That’s why if someone is talking around you while you’re sleeping you might remember the conversation in the morning or dream about it. It’s also why people with a busy schedule benefit from recording the information they need to learn. As such, you should encourage your kids to record their studies and listen to it at night. It won’t disrupt their sleep, and it just might lead to higher test scores at school.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
