Hello Andzhela,

I think groups and communities where you can connect with like-minded individuals (parents, caregivers) will surely be a feature in the future for Hello Pal. smile Perhaps in a second phase for development for the app, but yes, definitely, we are interested in making this a feature!
17  BrillKids Software / HOW TOs and FAQs / Re: how to start teaching little reader for my two yrs old son on: May 27, 2015, 09:27:37 AM
Hi Andzhela!

If by "cartoons on TV" you mean that you intend to play Little Reader lessons by autoforwarding, then yes - however, this is not something we recommend doing.

We specifically created our programs to involve parents; this means that we recommend parents to go through the Little Reader lessons together with their child, and especially for Multisensory lessons, we encourage parents to go through each slide and interact with their children while viewing the slides.

In a nutshell - make sure you accompany your baby as much as you can for ALL TV/computer-watching (and this includes our software programs!) so that you have stimulation coming from you and not just the computer or TV, and try your best to make the entire process interactive - encourage your baby to respond, ask your baby/child questions (even if they can't talk yet), etc., instead of letting it be purely a one-way process where your baby just stares at the screen for long periods without needing to think or respond.

With Little Reader, we've created your daily lessons to last for approximately 5 minutes each day - this is far less the time it would take for you to watch one television show, and these lessons require interaction from the parent or caregiver while it is being presented, and not a purely sit-and-watch kind of lesson.

But of course, only you can decide what you think is best for your baby. ^_^ The reason why we provide you with a free trial for the program is so that you can see if this is a program which you think will work for you and if it's something you can fit in your daily routine.
18  The BrillKids Forum / BrillKids Announcements / Re: ALL-NEW Transportation & Traffic Category Pack for Little Reader! on: May 27, 2015, 09:22:06 AM
Hello andzhela -

Sorry, it is not possible to use a LITE version of Little Reader to play back Category Packs. You will need a Little Reader which has been unlocked with a PRO license or a BASIC license in order to play them back.

Hope this helps!

20  The BrillKids Forum / BrillKids Announcements / Re: Welcome to the BrillKids Forum! on: May 21, 2015, 09:56:10 AM
Hi Goldengirl8!

Welcome to the BrillKids Forum! smile

We've had a few BrillKids parents on here who have used our programs with children with special needs, and for some, it has proven effective due to the methods of teaching which the system use: flash and multisensory.

I can go on and on about the program and how it can help, but I think the best way is to really try it out for yourself and see if your child will like sitting through and interacting through the lessons. With your BrillKids registration and membership, you have access to download the program for free:
http://www.brillkids.com/user/acct-mgmt-purchases.php/Little-Reader-Software.php

Just download and install the program and try to use it for your little one.

If you would like to know more about the methods of teaching used by the program, please feel free to download our free eBook here:
http://www.brillkids.com/media/ebooks/ebook-teaching-with-little-reader.pdf

I hope this helps in some way! And I hope you have a lovely time teaching (and learning) with BrillKids! heart

30  Parents' Lounge / General Parenting / Re: Computers & iPads for kids. Not a good thing? on: December 18, 2014, 08:52:53 AM
That's an excellent question, and a frequently asked one. There are several angles or issues involved and this has been a concern of many parents too - we did a bit of research on the issue and talked to several pediatricians and electronics experts about it, and this is what we understand:

DO WE GET RADIATION FROM A COMPUTER SCREEN?

Radiation coming from computers is negligible. If it is harmful to a baby, then it's also harmful to YOU and you would find many people telling YOU to stay away from computers, not just your baby. One point that isn't mentioned much though relates to 'positive ions.' Unlike what it sounds like, POSITIVE ions are actually bad, and NEGATIVE ions are good. (Do a search on negative ions and you will see the difference.) Now, the old CRT (cathode ray tube) monitors, you know, those big bulky ones, do emit a lot of positive ions. People who are particularly sensitive to positive/negative ions (estimated to be about 20% of population) tend to get certain ill effects from prolonged exposure to it, like lower immune systems, moodiness, etc. Thankfully, more and more people nowadays use LCD monitors, which do not have this problem. And as for TV, where there are still many CRT TVs in use, the important thing to do is to keep a distance from it, and minimize the time spent in front of it.

WHAT ABOUT EYE STRAIN?

This is a common cause of complaint, for children and adults alike. I think the seriousness of the problem here depends on the monitor, and in particular, on its refresh rate. Old monitors (especially the CRT ones) have very low refresh rates - if you look closely at these old monitors, you will see the screen flickering. Over time, this tends to cause eye strain. Again, thankfully, modern monitors have very high refresh rates and this problem has been reduced considerably. Many people who used to have eye strain problems with old CRT screens no longer have problems with modern-day LCD/plasma screens.

One final note here is glare - make sure the lighting is adequate! Also, a lot of tablets and screens already have an AUTO function which adjusts the brightness depending on how bright the environment. If you haven't tried it yet, USE IT! It's very helpful and it regulates the brightness of the screen to adjust to a comfortable viewing level automatically.

IS TV IS HARMFUL TO BABIES?

Actually, when most people talk about the problems with watching TV/using screens and tablets, they are actually referring more to the content aspect of it. This question is so important that we wrote an article on it, which you can read here: http://www.brillbaby.com/early-learning/related-topics/babies-and-television.php

In a nutshell - make sure you accompany your baby as much as you can for all TV/computer-watching so that you have stimulation coming from you and not just the TV, and try your best to make the entire process interactive - encourage your baby to respond, ask your baby/child questions (even if they can't talk yet), etc., instead of letting it be purely a one-way process where your baby just stares at the screen for long periods without needing to think or respond.

But of course, only YOU can decide what you think is best for your baby. ^_^ Too much of anything can be bad, then again, crossing out a great avenue for learning and education just out of hearsay can be bad too.
