November 10, 2017—LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com), the world’s largest personal brain training company, is helping
parents celebrating National Buy Nothing Day this November 24 by offering
four alternative “gifts” that will get them through life—not
just the long Christmas break.
1. Responsibility. Coddling children does them a disservice and hinders
their ability to be prepared for life outside the home. Encourage them
to volunteer, help around the house, get a job, and take responsibility
for their actions. Teach them to balance a checkbook, keep commitments,
and be punctual. Read a review of

2. Brain training. Stop asking teachers to accommodate your child, and instead address the
root cause of learning struggles. One-on-one brain training targets the
underlying cognitive skills that help us think, learn, process, memorize,
and recall information. These cognitive skills include auditory and visual
processing, logic & reasoning, processing speed, attention, and memory.
3. A love of reading. Does your child have a library card or access to e-books? Head to a used
or new bookstore, create a local book exchange with other parents, or
find out when the library is having its next paperback sale.
4. Failure. Watching kids fail is hard, but how else do they learn from
their mistakes? Part of the beauty of failure is that it encourages us
to take risks and learn that we can survive the results, no matter what
they may be. As hockey great Wayne Gretzky said, “You miss 100%
of the shots you don’t take.
