Creative children are smarter than their average peers are, while their ability to succeed
in life is quite extraordinary. Creativity is not about achieving excellence in specific
field of learning. Creativity is all about being finding solutions to the most critical of
all problems, and display an air of freshness in attitude, demeanour, way of life, thinking
process and social skills. In fact, it is an amalgamation of different brain skills.
Boosting creativity in young children is possible with careful and calibrated parental response.
As creativity is a matter of personal excellence, parents may wish to allow their children that
“elusive” freedom of expression, in just enough quantity, to self-generate different
creative skills. Have a nice day!

From the moment of conception, a child's wellbeing and development is dependent upon the mother's actions and
behaviours. The maternal instinct to protect one's young is common throughout all of humanity.

ways to improve their child's health, but also ways to increase
their child's learning and development.
Is IQ in the Genes? Twins Give Us Two Answers
Wall Street Journal Jun 22, 2012
These days the heritability of intelligence is not in doubt: Bright
adults are more likely to have bright kids. The debate was not

inherited at all was a heresy in academia, punishable by the
equivalent of burning at the stake. More than any other evidence, it
was the study of twins that brought about this change.
