Wouldn’t it be great if your child came with an owner’s manual for his brain? How can you tell if his quirky behavior is “normal”? Is doing flashcards with your infant part of his required maintenance? This class will help you gain an appreciation for the miracle that is the human brain, understand what interventions can aid a developing brain to reach its potential and which popular recommendations are without scientific merit, and become familiar with a few common brain dysfunctions parents should be aware of. But most of our time will be spent learning how to “teach with the brain in mind” – to apply what we know about brain function in raising and teaching our children.Preview Visual Presentation
Jennifer believes that raising intelligent, happy, freedom-loving children–and helping others do the same–is a powerful way of contributing to society. She worked as an intensive care nurse for 20 years, but now has switched to doing “intensive mommying.” The Georgias have four kids in Team A, who were homeschooled since birth and are now all launched into college, missions, jobs, and/or marriage. Team B is composed of three kids adopted from foster care along with their bio son.
Jennifer is the author of Magical Math: A Book for Young Children and Their Parents which is illustrated by Team A, and You Don’t Have to Be an Expert: Why Homeschooling Works. She blogs at Vision Academy Publishing.
