Many parents commit this unpardonable mistake by benchmarking their children with others. In fact, it is
a regressive activity that does not serve any purpose. It does not help you and your children either.
However, comparing your children with others is a negative parenting strategy and it can harm both of you
– you and your children. The way in which children grow – both mental and physical, varies
markedly among all children. In fact, you can never compare one with the other.
You may want to concentrate and focus on your child's strengths and positive characters and create a system
that assesses their own progress rather than creating a new and thoughtless comparing mechanism. Measure
your children's progress over a period and assess their growth, so that you can improve and fine-tune
their performance over time, in case there is any visible lacunae and weakness. All the best!

Raise a Smarter Child by Kindergarten: Raise IQ by up to 30 points and turn on your child's smart genes
By David Perlmutter, M.D and Carol Colman
Between birth and age five, your child has up to thirty IQ points at stake. Scientists now know that
the human brain is undergoing a constant and dramatic transformation in the first years of life. During
this peak time of development, every activity and experience leaves an indelible mark on your baby's
brain, for better or worse. The right kind of stimulation and nutrition will create connections in the
brain that promote intelligence and raise IQ.
The good news is that raising a smarter child is easier than you think. It doesn't require making
an investment in expensive equipment or high priced tutors. It's as simple as playing the right
games, serving the right foods, and maintaining a brain-enhancing environment in your home by eliminating
