Hi,

The world is changing. The school system is changing and the school syllabuses are changing. How is your child going to deal with the changing world? In my personal opinion, while a child might need to acquire different skills set in the changing world, a skill set that will never get outdated and will continue to be useful for life is the ‘Thinking Skill'. If your child is equipped with the skill to help them think, learn and succeed, I strongly believe he/she will be able to adapt to any changing environment for life – whatever their age. 

I bought an excellent book titled "Your Child Can Think Like A Genius : How to unlock the gifts in every child" that highlighted the importance of individual ideas, creativity and independent thinking. The book is packed full of fun activities that aims to develop smart thinking. Take a look at the Brainy Product for more information. Have a great weekend.

p/s: For those who stays in Singapore, Dr. Sandhu Kaur will be conducting a f'ree seminar about "Every Child is Potentially Gifted! Learn to Understand Their Giftedness." on May 29th (Sun). For more details, please click here.

Right diet equals IQ gain, say physicians

"These days, parents are worried about their children's intelligence level.

The Overscheduled Child: Avoiding the Hyper-Parenting Trap
Connect for kids May 19, 2005

"Hyper-parenting" is the phrase we coined to describe a child-rearing style now prevalent in middle and upper-middle class homes.
