10 keys to Developing Your Childs Genius

Would you like your child to be the best that he can be - to achieve his maximum potential? Imagine how successful your child can be with a brilliant mind, lightening fast learning skills, an accurate, lasting memory, creativity and problem solving skills of a genius. Here are 10 keys to developing your child's genius.

1. When Should I Start?

Start immediately. Do you have a newborn? Excellent time to start. Do you have a teenager? It is not too late! There are many things you can teach your teenager, that will increase his chances of success in life, as well as improve your relationship with him. Many of these things are never taught in school!

2. Make it Fun

Learning is fun! If you observe little children at play, you will notice that by playing, they are actually performing research of the toy they are playing with. When they feel that they have learned all that they can learn from the toy, they toss it aside and look for a new one. If you make learning fun , your child will develop the love of learning.

3. You Are Your Child's Natural Teacher

As a parent, you are your child's natural teacher. No matter how many teachers your child has in school or outside of school, you are his first and most important teacher. Your child learns from you the most important things in life. Make sure to take advantage of this fact to teach your child important lessons.

4. Don't Keep Your Child Behind

We all underestimate the ability of children to learn. A newborn cannot speak yet, so we don't know how much and how fast he can learn. Young children are dependant on us to provide the learning materials to them. It is important to realize, that a child learns a language in his first year of life! This is a huge achievement, as everyone who has tried to learn a second language knows.

At the time a child starts speaking, single words at first and then whole sentences, he already understands a vast majority of things that are said to him. His mastery of the language is already much better than he can demonstrate by talking.

At the core of this incredible ability to learn a language, is the skill of pattern recognition. This skill is also important in reading, music and many other areas.It is wise to take advantage of this incredible skill to teach the young child as much as we can.

5. Let Your Child Lead the Way

Children are interested in different subjects at different periods of time. Expose your child to many subjects, and let your child show you what he enjoys most, what he is interested in most. Then you can explore and research that particular subject. It is much easier to teach your child a subject that he is interested in, that one that he is not.

When you are "working" with your child on the subject of his choice, you can relate many other subjects to it. For examply, if your child is interested in trains, you can study about the history of trains, about the physics of trains and how they function, geography - study a map and look at train tracks in different geographical areas, Mathematics - related to trains, and much more.

6. Children Hate to be Tested

When you explore and research with your child, or teach him a subject, never test him to find out if he learned. Trust that he is learning, and keep going. You don't have to worry whether your child is learning or not, the only thing you have to worry about is whether you are able to keep his interest. As long as he is interested - he is learning!

7. Children Learn Fast

Children learn so much faster than we think. If you don't move fast enough, you lose your child's interest. Teaching too slowly and repetition create bordom, and bordom is the enemy of learning.

Again - let your child lead the way. If your child is ready to move to a new subject or a new concept - follow his lead.

8. Confidence and Self Esteem

Confidence and self esteem are most important to your child's success. As you know, even the most talented, intelligent person, if he doesn't believe in himself, will never attempt to take on a challenging assignment or a challenging position. This can be hazardous to his career and success.

Praise your child often. Honest and sincere praise will do wonders for your child's confidence. Never criticize. Make it a habit at the end of the day, before your child goes to bed, to review his achievements and successes. Notice even the smallest things!

9. Goal Setting

Teach your child to set goals early on. No matter what your child's age, you can start the day talking about the plan for the day, and the goals you would like to achieve that day. When your child is ready, you can start setting weekly goals, monthly goals and yearly goals. Make a plan to achieve these goals, and make sure your child knows that the plan is flexible and can change.

10. It's OK to Make Mistakes

Make sure your child knows that it's OK to make mistakes. Mistakes are learning opportunities, they are feedback about what works and what doesn't. You will never make mistakes if you never attempt to try and achieve anything. This realization leads to a stronger confidence.

As a parent, you have the ability to contribute to your child's future, to help your child achieve his maximum potential. But don't wait! The earlier you start - the better your child's chance to achieve brilliance and explosive success.
