LATEST BRAINY NEWS
WHAT'S IN THE NEXT ISSUE
With the Christmas Holiday approaching, I begin to hear the
insistent beat of reindeer hooves on my roof.... OK, just kidding.
In this busy holiday season, your email inbox (not to mention your
plate) will be overflowing. So, I have decided to give you a break,
while also giving myself a break as a publisher. Therefore, this issue will be the
last issue of the year 2003 (i.e. no issue on Dec 26). I'll be back on the regular publishing
schedule next year!
If you want to donate to a very good
cause this Christmas, I would suggest you to take a serious
look at "The 3rd Annual Internet Toy Drive". They
haven't nearly as many toys as they need for all of the children
participating, so please see how you can help at Internet
Toy Drive. Alternatively, you can choose to help the Orphans at Aid
Have a great holiday!

boys, you damage boys' ability to feel closely connected to
others and their ability to have awareness of their own feelings.
Boys learn to "swallow" feelings of inadequacy or weakness.... Read more here

Einstein Never Used Flash Cards
By Dr. Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, Dr. Kathy Hirsh-Pasek
Average Customer Review - 5 Stars
Parents are told that we have the power to make our children smarter by playing certain music,
or buying specific toys, or signing them up for special activities. Unfortunately, in our quest
to help our kids be successful, we are running ourselves - and our kids - ragged.
Psychologist Kathy Hirsh-Pasek has some good news for exhausted parents: allowing your kids free
time to play may be the best thing you'll ever do for them. With Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, she
has written a book called, "Einstein Never Used Flash Cards: How our Children REALLY Learn - And
Why They Need to Play More and Memorize Less."
