Reading bedtime stories to young children is a traditional ritual passed down for generations. Besides being useful for parent-child bonding, latest neurological research has shown that this activity is also critical to brain development, including critical and inventive thinking. The latter is one of the necessary skills identified by the Ministry of Education under their 21st Century Competencies Framework. In today’s age of smart phones and tablets, how then can parents capture the creative imagination of their child and maximise their brain development through using traditional bedtime stories? This interactive seminar will share playful ways, innovative ideas and useful tips for parents to unleash the brainy benefits of bedtime stories, while having loads of fun together with their children.
