Back to School Season = Greater Lice Risk

Back to school season is here, which means new school supplies, new friends & that dreaded four letter word-LICE.¬†Head lice affects 6-12 million children each year in the U.S. But, this school year, parents need to be even more wary¬†since lice populations have become resistant to over-the-counter treatments. A whopping 42 out of 48 states are¬†overrun by a so-called super lice according to the “Journal of Medical Entomology”. 100% of lice tested were resistant¬†to over-the-counter products. If a pesticide is used over & over, these little vermin will eventually develop resistance.¬†It is also a safety concern when parents repeatedly use a product on their children, which can be a dangerous practice due¬†to time limits between treatments.

head_lice_s15An alternative solution to this pesky problem is a unique, revolutionary product. It is safe, natural & chemical free. This product repels all external parasites safely from animals & humans. Each disc is charged with magnetic & Scalar/Tesla waves to create a protective barrier around the body. The product is 97% effective, water resistant & odorless.

Attention Parents & Teachers!

13879308_908944835900271_2481223829937408651_n

Have you ever wondered why your kids easily remember the lyrics to their favorite songs on the radio, but struggle with rememberbering their multiplication facts?

Have you ever thought about how they can recall crazy one-liners from their favorite movies & TV shows, but can’t seem to recall their vowel sounds or their states & capitals?

This can be highly frustrating for both you & your kids as you spend outrageous amounts of time & money on tutoring, afterschool programs, & many other resources, only to find out that your child is still falling behind the rest of the class!

Well what if I told you that as of right now, you could take advantage of the same secrets that the TV & radio use to help your children learn practically ANYTHING!

…& what if I told you that these ‚Äúsecrets‚ÄĚ are simple, yet incredibly powerful & can help your child excell in school REGARDLESS of their age or learning style.

Best of all, what if I told you that these simple but powerful secrets can be used anywhere, at anytime, require little to no effort on your part, & have already been proven to help children across the nation learn easier, faster, & can even increase their motivation for learning!

Sounds too good to be true right? Well fortunately it’s not. Let me introduce you to the three R’s ‚Äď Rhyme, Rhythm & Repetition!

First let’s take a look at Rhyme. When you use rhyme, you automatically build relationships between words & concepts. Whenever your child hears a rhyme, signals are sent to their brains that say ‚Äúthis is important, remember this‚ÄĚ.

Then we have Rhythm. Rhythm involves the body & the emotions. Whenever you use rhythm, you turn what is being heard into physical sensations & emotional experiences. This is highly effective in programing the subconscious mind to be able to retrieve information later on.

Then we have Repetition. We all know that anything you see, hear, or do over & over again becomes second nature. Both TV & Radio are notorious for using this particular technique.

When you combine the elements of Rhyme, Rhythm & Repetition, it creates the perfect storm for information to literally be encoded into the brain, quickly, easily, & making it stick for many years to come. Your child will recall facts & information effortlessly because it has become a part of them.

The media has known & used these secrets for generations to influence many different aspects of social behavior.

Now you have the power to influence your child’s education like never before, with the Hip-Hop Edutainment Series.

Our line of music-based learning cd’s specially designed to teach your student fundamental academic subjects like Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, ABCs, Vowel Sounds Counting, States & Capitals and more!!

These CDs are specially designed to combine the elements of Rhyme, Rhythm & Repetition in a way that makes learning easy, fun & automatic!¬†Each CD also contains practice rounds that test your child’s knowledge of the facts, allowing them to fully interact with music!

Parents & educators across the nation, have already used these powerful music based learning cd’s to dramatically enhance their students overall academic performance.¬†So now let me ask you a question‚Ķ

If you know that your child is having a hard time in school, & all the traditional methods have failed to help them, why would you NOT want to invest in something that could potentially change their lives overnight?!?

Why would you NOT want to invest in something that could potentially help your child to get better grades, which would also boost their self-esteem & give them the courage & confidence to face challenges in school, & in life!

Why would you continue to spend time & money on expensive tutors & afterschool programs, that don’t speak your child’s language – the language of Rhyme, Rhythm & Repetition.

Listen, it’s time to end the frustration. Learning doesn’t have to be boring or a struggle. So get started today investing in the one thing that matters the most… Your child’s education!
