I hope and believe that you have had a wonderful and happy New Year celebration. This is the first BrainyZine issue in 2009. Wow, another year has come and gone. I believe you probably have your New Year resolutions by now. What do you want to accomplish in '09? Lose some pounds, be a better person, find a job, keep your job, make more money, travel, get married, graduate...I hate to say this, but I believe most of us set our goals year after year only to see them remain incomplete and transferred from one year to the next ;-)

2009 is going to be a bumpy ride. If one of your resolutions is to make more money so that there's the peace of mind of not having to worry about bills, then perhaps you'd want to watch the special life-changing free video " Six Minutes to Success" by Bob Proctor (over the last 40 years of Bob Proctor's life he's been holding people's hands and leading them step-by-step across the bridge to a life of richness and success. Click on this special link right now). Have a great week ahead!

Best Regards,
Andrew Loh

The Power of Praising and Encouragement
The power of praising and encouragement are two of the strongest pillars of child development. Parents who are well trained in the techniques of praising their children tend to create better and successful children. Here are some useful suggestions on how you can praise your children in everyday life.

The Power of Praising and Encouragement - Tips for Parents
Though parents praise and encourage their children on a regular basis, they tend to do it only when children show good results or after achieving better output, especially in their classroom. However, this could be a wrong method of praising as praising only for good results may be extremely counter-productive in the long run. Here are some practical and helpful tips for parents on how they can praise their children at the appropriate time.


Praising Girls Well: 100 Tips for Parents and Teachers
By Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer

Girls like to have their accomplishments noticed, but sometimes the need for praise can spiral into a constant quest for perfection. Girls may have a propensity to do things not because they judge it to be right or helpful but rather to stay in people's good graces. The result is that they can become cut off from their own true selves.

Praising Girls Well points the way to using praise in a manner that will boost a girl's inner confidence, help her to understand it's okay to make mistakes, and guide her to trust in her own judgment. Brimming with practical tips for everyday use, this is a handbook to revisit time and again for our girls' grandest-and smallest-successes.


Praising Boys Well: 100 Tips for Parents and Teachers
By Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer

Boys need encouragement and praise to develop healthy self esteem, but they can also feel swamped and suffocated by what they see as constant commentary on their every move-and as a result they can be inclined to act out.

How can parents strike the right balance between giving effective praise and not going overboard? How can we help our boys to feel proud without inspiring a false sense of confidence or making them praise dependent? Praising Boys Well shows parents and teachers alike what boys need to hear along the developmental continuum and offers countless tips on what to encourage; which phrases to use-and to avoid; when incentives are appropriate; and how to incorporate praise into our boys' everyday activities.

Child's Play: Do parents really need to join in on 'floor time'?
Babble Jan 05, 2009

I have to admit it, I hate playing on the floor with my son. I enjoy reading to him, playing ‘Row Row the Boat' and occasionally dancing around the lounge room. But I draw the line at playing Duplo or making endless cups of imaginary tea. Instead, I'll set up an activity and then get on with whatever else I was doing - working, attacking the laundry basket, reading trashy magazines.
