  1. Such a GREAT entry, Shen-Li.
    Because I admire you so much for what you do for your buys! but I always thought “I am not too sure about ALL the amazing stuff right brain training is supposed to produce” (I must admit that one big obstacle is that I simply will find it very difficult to find ime to do more for my children apart from Doman for two kids, swimming, piano, gross motor skill and English classes) So I am very thankful that you put all this testimonials for me together to check. THANKS ISA

    PD: One easy way of course would be to put my children in front of the 9 Tweedlewink DVDs that I have got, but unfortunately they find them boring and my 3-year old cannot sit through one session:-( Anybody else with that experience?


    1. Thanks Isa. It was a privilege for me to listen to Mrs Henmi share her vast experience in right brain education. She has been doing this for years and has seen so many children develop wonderfully.

      Yes, it sounds like you are already doing so much for your children! You are a very devoted mother indeed! Makoto Shichida said that the primary aim should be to develop the right brain while the children are young so you can capture their potential. Once they grow older and have developed their interests, you can explore other extra-curricular activities based on where their inclinations lie. For example, a child that exhibits a keen interest in music, you can add on music lessons. Because he has already been developing his right brain, he will be able to pick up music easily.

      I spoke to Wennie about the children not really paying attention to the TweedleWink DVDs and she said it is okay to play it in the background while your children are doing something else. They will absorb it subconsciously as all children do. You can also do other right brain activities which don’t take long. Please see the link on the right brain home practice guide for activities you can do with your children to develop their right brain:
