KICKSTARTER PROJECT: BRAINSMART PARENTING

Børn og unge

Today, I launched BRAINSMART PARENTING via Kickstarter.com. It aims at mobilising support for a worldwide movement helping kids learn and thrive via making their parents more aware of how the brain functions. I ask for funding to have A BOOK and AN ONLINE COURSE translated, tailor-made, created and published. Together we can create a movement that will help kids and teenagers learn and thrive via parents who are more aware of the brain’s core logics when interacting with their offspring. First and foremost, this is an opportunity to grow new parenting skills – with the brain in mind. And to avoid the most brain-clumsy language and behaviours substituting these with a more brainsmart repertoire.

Read more about the Kickstarter project here.

If you would like to:

  • turn “stop that!” situations into learning opportunities,
  • help your child bounce back from distress and anger,
  • strengthen your child’s calm courage when grabbed by fear or performance anxiety,
  • reframe situations to help you be a constructive parent even in the midst of high emotional tension,
  • make the most of the brain’s plasticity; i.e. ability to grow and shape neural pathways,
  • approach life as a parent in a new light, spotting windows of opportunity based on how the brain works …

… this is the project for you. Please support the Kickstarter project to turn it into reality. Every pledge – small or big – is WELCOME and will help us move towards our goal.

LinkedIn reaction from Organisational Psychologist (MA), Olu Robbin-Coker, when he found out that I had launched the Kickstarter project:

“I recently finished reading one of the best books I have ever read on parenting skills. It’s the third book I have read by Anette Prehn who is a genius at communicating applied neuroscience to anyone from CEO’s to 5 year old kindergarten kids. I wanted to recommend the book to everyone, however it’s in Danish, so that rules out pretty much everyone except the 5 million or so people in the world that speak Danish. 🙂 It therefore delighted me greatly to see that Anette is not only working on getting the book translated into English but also developing an online course to go with it.”

Anette Prehn (1975) er iværksætter, forskningsformidler, sociolog og forfatter til en række bestseller-bøger om hjernens spilleregler og disses betydning for socialt samspil, mental sundhed, læring og ledelse.

Hendes nyeste bog er "Det syngende menneske. Nye veje til forbundethed". Anette Prehn opdagede for år tilbage, at hjernen følger bestemte spilleregler. “What!” tænkte hun. “Hvordan kan det være, at forskerne ved det her, uden at det er omsat, så almindelige mennesker har konkret gavn og glæde af det?”

Det kickstartede hendes mission: At blive en folkets formidler, der gør socialpsykologi og hjerneforskning praktisk anvendelig for alle. 

Anette Prehn har bl.a. fået udgivet "Afledte effekter. Tag skyklapperne af - styrk børn og unges livsmestring", "FLIP - hjælp din plastiske hjerne med at tackle det 21. århundrede" samt HJERNESMART-trilogien: Hjernesmarte Børn, Hjernesmart Ledelse og Hjernesmart Pædagogik. Hun har også skrevet minibøgerne Ansvar og Mod samt HJERNEVENNER-minibogsserien, så børn og unge kan lære at gøre hjernen til en medspiller i hverdagen:

  • Stierne i hjernen anbefales af professor og hjerneforsker Troels W. Kjær
  • Bliv ven med hjernens amygdala anbefales af professor i socialpsykologi Per Schultz Jørgensen
  • Gør hjernen til en medspiller anbefales af ph.d. og vinder af Ph.d. Cup 2017 Louise Klinge
  • Sov dig til en bedre hjerne anbefales af hjerneforsker og søvnekspert Maiken Nedergaard
  • Giv hjernen plads til udvikling anbefales af familievejleder Lola Jensen
  • Tag nye billeder med hjernen anbefales af hjerneforsker Kjeld Fredens
  • Din kreative hjerne anbefales af mad-entreprenør Claus Meyer

Anette Prehn er også en flittig skaber af sange til Danmark, primært i samspil med komponisterne Rasmus Skov Borring og Kristian Bisgaard. Du kan se/synge alle hendes offentliggjorte sange her. Og læse mere om Anette Prehns mission her
