Scientific Parenting for a SMARTER Brain Seminar


Focus, memory and critical thinking are all essential cognitive skills that help our children learn and perform well in school. Research has found that not only do these cognitive skills correlate with academic results, they also have a strong influence on one’s future career success.

#1: Focus & Attention – The ability to concentrate on the task at hand and not be distracted by unimportant or irrelevant information.  

#2: Memory – There are many types of memory and most people are aware of short-term and long-term memory. However, more recently, working memory has been found to have a deep impact on academic performance and even intelligence. Working memory is the ability to not only store information but also manipulate them at the same time, critical especially for successful reading comprehension and the ability to solve multi-step Math problems.   

#3: Critical Thinking – This means having clear, reasoned ideas and judgments. A person with critical thinking skills is able to understand the logical connections between ideas, construct and evaluate arguments and solve problems systematically.    

Considering the importance of these cognitive skills, it is vital that parents learn to understand these skills, why some children may excel in them while others may struggle, and mostly, how to boost them in our children.

In a recent large-scale study on school effectiveness conducted by researchers from Harvard and MIT, it was found that while schools impart academic knowledge, they do not seem to impact cognitive development, highlighting the need for specific cognitive training.

Attend this seminar to learn about:

1)    Focus, Memory & Critical Thinking – Key cognitive skills that power our “learning engine”

2)    Cognitive training in children – What it really entails

3)    8 research-based strategies to improve attention, memory and critical thinking in your child
