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 “secrets” 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 – 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 “this is important, remember this”.

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.

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.

IMPACT: AFTER THE CRASH

Today marks the 28th anniversary of the deadliest drunk driving incident in United States history. At 10:55 p.m. on May 14, 1988, Larry Wayne Mahoney, a drunk driver in a pickup truck traveling in the wrong direction on an interstate highway in a rural area of Carroll County, Kentucky collided head-on with a gasoline-powered  school bus which was in use as a church bus. The initial crash was exacerbated when the gasoline from the ruptured fuel tank of the bus ignited immediately after impact, which also blocked the front loading door. Difficulties encountered by the victims attempting to evacuate the crowded bus quickly in the smoke & darkness through the only other designated exit, the rear emergency door, resulted in the death of 27 (mostly children) & injuries of 34 others.

My primary aim through this blog feature  is to honor the victims & survivors of the crash. Next, I urge you to  call for an uber, taxi, sober driver friend, or to stay put if you have had too much to drink. XOXO
