Hi,
When you consider what the purpose of having a high IQ is, how does this effect what you want for your child? As a parent, we always want what is best without feeling as if we are simply pushing our child to only do what we as the parent want. Looking towards the various reasons that IQ is important it is easy to see why such a high emphasis is placed on this single number.

As a parent there are some things you can do to help improve your child's IQ. Helping your child achieve the best success in life that is possible is something that is always highly encouraging to most parents. Let us work together to help your child achieve the higher IQ that you are looking to help your child earn.

Thought for today:
Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light somewhere nearby. " - Ruth E. Renkee

Q2:  I want to know whether there is any way of bringing my nephew's intelligence to someone's attention and getting him tested. He is 3 years old.

He is extremely inquisitive, has a very accurate and amazing memory. Counts in English and French, recognizes written words, knows his alphabet, all his colours and what they make if you mix them together....So, do you think he could be gifted? And if so how could we get him tested. He comes from a working class family. Thanks.
