Memory for Kids: Building Better Minds! August 9, 2021 By Bekki Leave a Comment This content may contain affiliate links. Mind Blown. The book that BLEW MY MIND About a month ago, ordered Limitless as an audiobook and devoured it on my daily walks. I am on a mission to walk 1,200 miles this year and one of the ways I stay motivated is to listen to audiobooks. I knew I was listening to GOLD. The BEST thing we can teach our kids is:*HOW to learn*HOW to remember*HOW to improve their reading speed and comprehension Walking in circles around the local football track, I became obsessed with the possibility that I could improve my own memory. I quickly invested in Jim’s Memory Masterclass and Kwik reading programs. I planned to try them for a week or two and get my money back if it wasn’t working. I figured I could race through, test to see if it was a scam, and then ask for a refund. NO WAY. I don’t want my money back!!!!! HUGE life changing is happening as I roll up my sleeve each day and read and study and YOU need to know about this today. Imagine beginning your day with your kids: 10-20 minute reading videos. I started doing this a with my youngest son. The results so far?My son is BLOWING me away. I knew he would. I told him he would… He’s dyslexic and I honestly believe he was boring his brain to death trying to read before… He went from 200 to 500 words per minute in a week… Now he is just barely getting started and has jumped from about 200 words per minute to over 500 words per minute! Me?I’ve stopped calling myself “Dory” from Finding Nemo and have embraced the truth that I can build a better brain.My reading speed has doubled, and we’re only a few lessons in to the Kwik Reading. I keep surprising myself with the memory tactics I’m learning in the full memory class as well. * Two days ago I learned 24 different meanings of the word fervent and know them backwards and forward.* I learned two Bible verses this morning while walking and listening to birds. Have you ever met someone new and forget their name within a few seconds? Me too! So we are working on learning the tactics to quickly and permanently remember names! * I memorized the Top 100 Male names and began teaching them to my 15 year old so we can become name learners together. Womens names are next on my agenda! I learned about Jim Kwik during an interview. He was a guest on a podcast with one of the doctors we follow online. I was mesmerized by Jim’s story and purchased his book while watching the interview. What if my short term memory issue could become a part of my past? What if you could really memor? Today, I am deep into this new land of brain super powers, neuroplasticity and so many other things I didn’t know I was missing. In days, this is the kind of progress I’ve made: I memorized my favorite poem, “Wandered Lonely as a Cloud,” by William Wordsworth.I created an “imaginary news paper” in my mind so I can record what happens in my day, so when my husband comes home from work at night I can give him the highlights, rather than my typical “not much happened” answer.I find myself no longer saying, “I forgot.”Instead, I find myself saying, “I didn’t draw the memory on my mind well enough to remember; just a second.” Learning HOW to learn is unlocking things in my life that I never thought possible! My next personal goal is to go grocery shopping without a list with the confidence of knowing I will remember everything I need while I am still at the store! It’s a whole new world for me and I am diligently working on “infecting” each of the others in my family, plus anyone who will read or listen. In this world full of technology and digital overload, what of you could teach you and your kids to:: have a super power memoryquickly learn everything from vocabulary words to grocery listsbuild better recall of people’s names and eventsread faster and with much higher comprehension What if you really could unlock your memory, increase your reading by 25%-100% or more? Or like my son, increase reading speed by 150% in less than a week! Better yet…What if, like me, you can teach your kids to do it… Resources I’ve absorbed, invested in, and am devouring: Limitless, a book by Jim KwikMoonwalking with Einstein, by Joshua Foer (This book was mentioned in the Limitless book and I downloaded it and almost have it complete. Some language and suggestive language inside)Recall Masterclass by Jim KwikKwik Reading by Jim Kwik If I could rewind the clock and teach all five of my sons over again, I’d teach them how to read effectively and quickly, how to REMEMBER what they read, and how to learn anything. If your kids already know how to read, it’s a great time to begin learning and weaving these types of trainings into your day.
