Hi,
It might never be possible to raise an Einstein or a Newton. For that matter, it is also very difficult to raise a legendary singer or a dancer. However, recent research suggests that every child will have his or her own hidden intelligence and talent that is dormant until someone helps to break it out of the shell. In fact, parents could help their children expand their inner talent and hidden potential to become stars of their life.

One of the best ways to help children is to nurture natural talent and refine it to the best possible extent. Most children are born talented however it is also almost always hidden within their body and soul. Any hidden talent and intelligence is always linked to Gardner's multiple intelligences. If a child exhibits certain intelligence, parents may like to help children indulge in those activities that assist them boost and refine that intelligence.

Unwrapping a child's hidden talent and potential might take some time and calibrated action plan on part of a parent. However, it is a worthwhile activity that can significantly impact children's eventual performance, both in the school and out of it. All the best!

Thought for today:
"Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?" - Benjamin Franklin

Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences
By Howard Gardner, Ph.D

The theory of multiple intelligences was proposed by Howard Gardner in this book as a model of intelligence that differentiates it into specific (primarily sensory) "modalities", rather than seeing it as dominated by a single general ability.

Gardner argues that there is a wide range of cognitive abilities, but that there are only very weak correlations among them. For example, the theory postulates that a child who learns to multiply easily is not necessarily more intelligent than a child who has more difficulty on this task. The child who takes more time to master multiplication may best learn to multiply through a different approach, may excel in a field outside mathematics, or may be looking at and understanding the multiplication process at a fundamentally deeper level.

Such a fundamental understanding can result in slowness and can hide a mathematical intelligence potentially higher than that of a child who quickly memorizes the multiplication table despite possessing a shallower understanding of the process of multiplication.

 

In Their Own Way: Discovering and Encouraging Your Child's Multiple Intelligences
By Thomas Armstrong, Ph.D

Does your child have a favorite subject, activity, or hobby? Children learn in multiple ways, and educator Thomas Armstrong has shown hundreds of thousands of parents and teachers how to locate those unique areas in each of our children where learning and creativity seem to flow with special vigor.

In this fully updated classic on multiple intelligences, Armstrong sheds new light on the "eight ways to bloom," or the eight kinds of "multiple intelligences." While everyone possesses all eight intelligences, Armstrong delineates how to discover your child's particular areas of strength among them.

The book shatters the conventional wisdom that brands our students as "underachievers," "unmotivated," or as suffering from "learning disabilities," "attention deficit hyperactivity disorder," or other "learning diseases." Armstrong explains how these flawed labels often overlook students who are in possession of a distinctive combination of multiple intelligences, and demonstrates how to help them acquire knowledge and skills according to their sometimes extraordinary aptitudes.

9 Smart Ways to Help Build Your Child's Vocabulary
Parade July 01, 2013

“There’s a lot of emphasis on vocabulary these days, which is interesting, because little kids are essentially word-learning machines,” says Christine Dollaghan, Ph.D., professor in the school of behavioral and brain sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas. “It’s hard for them to avoid learning new words, and the best thing that parents can do is really just talk to their children all the time. Experts call this ‘bathing’ your child in language, and the more your talk and the more words you use, the larger your child’s vocabulary will be.”.
