This workshop will guide parents to explore how to start early bilingual education, the importance of parent-guided reading, how to create suitable atmosphere and environment for parent-guided reading, how to use picture books and storytelling skills, the influences of music, how to use music to help your baby to grow, and how to let your baby be the dictator of games.
According to neuroscience research, the human brain is extremely developable, but timing is very important in brain development. The environment, interpersonal relationships and caring conditions of a baby’s early years cast long-term influences on their learning ability, emotional control ability and overall development. This workshop will share with you how to illuminate your baby’s mind through bilingual learning, parent-guided reading, music engagement and games, so that new parents won’t be anxious about missing the golden period of their baby’s development.
This program is a six-hour workshop with three modules. It integrates theories and scientific findings to guide parents through practice, self-discovery and video aids so as to enhance their awareness. Being fun and interactive, the program helps parents to instill knowledge of brain development and cognition, to reflect from within, to plan and act, and to completely change their ways of interactions with their baby. The goal is to build intimate attachment between parents and their baby and to lay a solid foundation for their baby to develop high intelligent and emotional quotients in the future.
