The story behind this post

It was triggered by my recollection of a similar question posed by a patient consulting at my family practice.

She asked:

What is the secret? How do I raise my child to be brilliant?

During that consultation, my initial scientific reasoning was:

a reliable genetic make-up!

Certainly, the easiest way to ensure you have a clever child!

In other words, marry the most intelligent spouse you can find!

But, unfortunately, this logical answer would not help my patient much at that point since she was already married and pregnant …

The opportunity for genetic selection had passed.

So let’s forget about the influence genes have on your child’s intellect and discover more practical ways to raise a brilliant child.

And, even though my kids were very lucky to be gifted with an insanely smart father, there are many things we can do every day to
help our kids be even more brilliant.

So what are we saying then?

Seeing that our kids’ intelligence does not rely on:

  • our own brain power only
  • in other words, the learning and memory genes they inherit from us

there must exist alternatives to help our kids be brilliant

These other ways include:

  • stimulating their brain development
  • and empowering them with skills to succeed in life

Your next question is of course, how do I do that:

And, that is exactly what we will discover in this post.

Read on to find out!
