Amazing kids...

How to raise amazing kids... I'm not saying that your kids will become amazing with this course. I'm saying they already are and this course will help you raise them.

It's as much about you, as it is about them. This course contains information that every parent should know

We all know parenting can be hard sometimes. The thing is, kids aren't adults and their brains are different as well. They react differently, and need different things. Some activities are helpful, others not so much. 

we will go from the newborn baby to the young adult. I will give you the keys to understand why your child is behaving in a certain way, and more importantly, how to react to it. I will help you grow their self esteem, develop a stable world view, foster their natural talents, help them deal with bullying and peer pressure.

We will cover some fascinating studies about parenting, some do's and don'ts, some tips and tricks, and we will be busting some common myths about parenting as well. You'll learn when to stay firm and when to be lenient, how to stay calm when you're about to loose it, and much more. The course is packed with concrete real life information. I'm a father of two myself, and my two kids are an endless source of inspiration and anecdotes that I'll share with you,

The Neuroscience behind the course...

Neuroscience for Parents is based on the NBA - the Neurocognitive and Behavioral Approach. Basically, what the NBA does, is studying how the brain works and its impact on human behavior

The NBA was developed in France, over a period of 25 years, by Dr Jacques Fradin, at the institute of environmental medicine. It is a fascinating, innovative and multi-disciplinary approach. It combines the fields of neurosciences, social psychology, behavioral sciences and many more to come up with one overlaying, comprehensive theory which gives unique insights in our complex human nature.

As the director of the Institute of Neurocognitivism I had the chance to work with Dr Fradin and become an expert in his groundbreaking approach.

I've developed this course to translate his work into useful insights and tools for parents. Being a parent is probably the most beautiful, ungrateful and difficult task in the world. Also probably the most important one. Therefore, all help is welcome. I know first hand, as I said, I'm a dad myself.

A dynamic course...

Now all this neuroscience and scientific studies could come across as complex or even boring. But the truth is, I'm more a communicator than a scientist myself. I'm a strong believer of edu-tainment, and that is exactly what you'll get in this course.

But there's more to the course than just the recorded lectures. You see, first of all, I'll answer any question you may have within 24 hours (but usually much faster than that). This leads to the comments and questions section being packed with great additional info you can freely go through. On top of that, several times a month, you'll receive educational announcements from me, posts from my blog, with additional insights about parenting. and finally, the course itself will grow over time, as I add more lectures to it.

A lot of people already told me every parent should be taking this course. And who am I to disagree... But don't take my word for it, just go over to the reviews and look at what some of the students had to say. It has been praised by pediatricians and parents alike (and if for any reason you don't agree with them, there's always your 30 day money back guarantee).

Join now, and get the best out of your amazing kids!

Neurocognitive and Behavioral Expert

Hi, my name is Gregory Caremans. I'm the founder of the Brain Academy. 

I'm a psychologist with a Master in communication, specialized in the Neurocognitive and Behavioral Approach. I'm the former Director of the Institute of Neurocognitivism in Brussels (Belgium). 

Today, I've specialized in writing and producing high quality brain-related content. I have my own blog and create online courses. I'm very proud to say that The Economist contacted me to start a partnership where they offer my courses to their readers. My courses were also recently featured in the magazine Entrepreneur.

Here at Udemy I teach over 50.000 students and most of my courses are best-sellers: 

  • Neuroscience for Parents is the N°1 course on parenting 
  • Master your brain is the N°1 course on Brain Science
  • Meet your brain is the N°1 free personal development course 
  • My Stress Management course is N°1 out of almost 900 courses on stress.
  • My Neuroplasticity course is N°1 in its category
  • My leadership course is N°4, right behind Seth Godin and Brian Tracy

A lot of people who follow my blog or enroll in my courses are quite curious about this NBA-thing, the Neurocognitive and Behavioral Approach. When you google it, you hardly find information on it. The reason for this is simple: The NBA has its origins in France, and is called ANC, l'approche Neurocognitive et Comportementale. Now when you google that, you'll find loads of information, unfortunately, the vast majority of it is in french…

So that's where I come in. I have been the Director of the Institute of Neurocognitivism, which task is to spread the NBA, for several years. I worked directly with the founders of the NBA, Dr. Jacques Fradin and his colleagues, and became an expert in his approach.

in 2014 I created my Brain Academy and took the decision to take the NBA one step further by elevating it's reach from a regional scope to a worldwide reach, by translating the work of Jacques Fradin into English, and make it accessible to everyone. With my team, we decided to translate the NBA into every day, real life applications: How to use the NBA to raise children, to become a better manager, to deal with stress, and so on… We've added new perspectives and insights from brilliant minds such as Daniel Kahneman, David Brooks, Dan Ariely, Antonio Damasio, Steven Pinker, and many more

My blog and these courses were born out of a frustration, that regardless of the time and effort me and my team would put into coaching and training people, we would only reach so many people. It's great to have a vision to change the world, but if you don't have the means to activate it, your vision is no more than a fantasy…

By the end of 2014, the first course got online. Since then, over 40.000 people have joined us already. Still, personally, I won't rest before reaching at least 100.000, and then one million, and more. And there's a simple reason for that: Understanding how our brains work and their impact on our behavior has a major impact on how we see ourselves and others. It helps us be at peace with ourselves and be more tolerant towards others. In other words: it makes the world a better place to live in.

So join us in this brain-revolution. Join one of my groundbreaking courses and become part of the tribe
