First Anniversary in The Shichida Method

A few of my blog readers e-mailed me and asked me for comments on The Shichida Method. After evaluating this program for a year, I do have a few positive comments to share with all of you. My son started this program a year ago when he was 10 months old.
This term, July – Sept 09, marks his first anniversary in The Shichida Method. However, I don’t have any amazing incident to share in terms of his extraordinary achievements as compared to other children. I don’t expect him to turn genius within a year. Neither am I expecting any fantastic results from him.

Memory Magic - Silly Story And Follow That Dot


Here's another Memory Magic! title, and it's real value for money!  You get 2 titles for the price of 1 CDROM !

Just like the Super Flash title, the Silly Story and Follow That Dot CDROM title are games that require zero installation, and will run within your Internet browser loaded with the Shockwave ActiveX plugin.

As with all Memory Magic! software titles, they are targeted at training the memory of young children, but even as an adult, I enjoy playing them myself too.  Again, if you have been through some brain-training enrichment courses, the memory training techniques propounded by these titles should be very familiar to you.


Memory Magic - Super Flash


Like lots of other parents, I have gone through my fair share of buying those hard-to-resist educational software for my pre-school kids.  And like lots of other parents, I have ended up often banging my head against the monitor wondering why the software insists that I need to install some prehistoric version of Quicktime when I already have the latest one installed.  I know if I throw caution to the wind and click on the Proceed-To-Install-And-Screw-Up-My-System button, it will be Hello-It's-Time-To-Find-My-Windows-Installation-Discs-And-Reinstall-My-System-Again.

Success With Flashcards

Hi mummies, every parent has different beliefs. But let me show you how flashcards really works with the correct attitude, method and most importantly dedication from parents.  I started Glenn Doman Math, English and Chinese flashcards with my gal at 4 mths old then progressed to I Can Read flashcards.
