In which area of your children’s lives would exceptional critical thinking give them the biggest advantage?
"Dr. Pearlman's program is a quantum leap forward. His groundbreaking programming and in-depth research into multiple fields—neuroscience, education, behavioural change— will empower everyone to fulfil their dreams."
JW Wilson, Executive Director, The Learning Code Institute
"Dr. Pearlman’s revolutionary methods for teaching critical thinking finally make advanced thinking skills available to everyone in the world.”
Ken Bain, Ph.D., President, Best Teachers Institute.
How your children will be different.
Brighter Minds, Better Futures offers a year of weekly 5-10 minutes lessons that your children can immediately apply in their lives:
Better Decisions Throughout their Lives
Research tells us that critical thinking is more important to good life decisions than IQ, so your children will apply thinking skills to every challenge they face rather than relying on peer influence, and trial and error like other children.
Advanced and More Meaningful Learning Strategies
Research consistently reveals that students learn better and achieve higher grades when they know how to make deep, thoughtful, meaningful connections between information, and your children will learn how to think critically through subjects even when it it’s not part of the curriculum. Note that according to a study by The American Association of Colleges and Universities, only 5% of college students are proficient in critical thinking. Your children can be the exceptions. They can arrive at college with the thinking skills that will set them apart.
Better Control their Emotions
Everyone thinks emotionally before rationally—which is especially true for children’s whose brains aren’t fully developed until age 25. Through BMBF, your children will gain what their peers lack: “metacognition” – greater control over their thinking processes, including the negative emotions that can derail sound thinking.
Independence and Self-Reliance
Not surprisingly, explicit training in critical thinking is shown to help safeguard children against negative influences by (a) recognizing and deflecting negative influences from peers, (b) separating false media sources from sound ones, and (c) avoiding group think, so BMBF arms your children with the thinking skills for their safety.
Advanced Reading and Writing
Research finds that most literacy education in schools and home manuals operates at sight-level for reading, and surface-level for writing. But unlike their peers, your children will learn “deep structure” reading and writing skills that even many educators don’t know despite how simple they are to apply.
Want a few of the scientific terms your children don’t need to know?
Whether they know it or not, your children will …
- Attain advanced metacognitive awareness
Harness the power of “cognitive disequilibrium”
- Understand how neurotransmitters impact their thinking
Adopt research-based “dispositions” that improve thinking
- Safeguard against the impact of cognitive biases and assumptions
Protect their thinking against “amygdala hijacking”
- Value the importance of Cognitive Load Theory
Master their brain’s survival-driven thinking processes
- Run objectivity tests on their thinking
- Resolve neurolinguistic cognitive tensions
- Harness relativistic thinking dualities
- Exercise their brain’s democratic cognitive processes
- Understand the impacts of decision science
- Appreciate the importance of neuroplasticity
- Apply the power of mirror neurons
- Understand the importance of genetic and epigenetic factors
- And so many more terms they’ll never even know!
Do you want your children to know how their brain thinks what it thinks, why it thinks it, and how to take control over it?
Engage Your Children's Brains Today
The only program of its kind, Brighter Minds, Better Futures doesn’t just offer tips on critical thinking.
Using our unique Inside-Out Critical Thinking methodology, it builds your children’s brains for better critical thinking in all aspects of life: education (reading, writing, studying, learning, discussion, etc.), real-world decisions, career readiness, social relationships, social media, and more.
We never teach anyone what to think, but we want to teach as many people as we can how to think better.
