What Do Geniuses Have In Common?

I received an email today from Megan Wong of   Train Your child to think like a Genius on what do geniuses have in common. As a mom, with normal kids ( yes, they are normal 😉 ), I can’t think of any except perhaps genius persons are naturally gifted individuals…? I’m not really sure.

By checking the list below against my kids abilities, it seems I need to give my kids the opportunities to explore more. My eldest son loves to draw houses, even asking me and his dad  if a plant can survive without a sunlight because he told us that he designed a house where plants will be planted in the basement. My husband and I were amazed on how our son thinks!

Anyway, according to Megan Wong, the following checklist makes or helps in making your kids genius:

  1. Parents who play a supporting role in believing in the abilities of their children
  2. Children who are allowed to develop their own individual gifts and talents
  3. Children who has no sense of any limits set on their abilities
  4. Children who are given the opportunity to explore their potential abilities in various fields
  5. Children whose abilities are being focused on instead of their age
  6. Children whose discovery, recognition and appreciation of their abilities are fostered.

Are your children in this league?

As  you can see, we play a big role in the future of our kids. We have to make sure that we nourish them with the right knowledge and opportunities in order for them to grow. Most children are eager to show  their parents what they already know and can contribute. We should always be ready in giving compliments and encourage them further in the talents and skills they are developing. I think as a parent, we should be more aware on these things. Who knows, your child could be the next Mozart, Da Vinci or  even Einstein.

  1. Although it wouldn’t really matter if my children are geniuses or not, I would of course want to be able to support their specific needs if they are fortunate to have exceptional skills. Here lies the importance of the parents’ sensitivity to the particular needs of their children.

      Indeed, Teresa! We should at least be aware on the needs of our children. What if they really have the skills that we’re not paying attention to? Let’s not put to waste what God planted in our kids. We must nourish it.

  2. Not only do genes count in making kids be “more intelligent” but a lot has to do with how parents guide and teach their kids to become “geniuses.” ;P

  3. I agree! Parents clearly play a big role in making sure that kids achieve their full potential 🙂 I love to be that kind of parent for my son. Thanks for these tips.

  4. Parents have a natural instinct when it comes to their children. We are aware of their skills and talents as early as the first time they talk and look into our eyes. It’s our main concern to hone these capabilities and support them along the way.

  5. I guess every kid is special so we should harness their talents so they will feel special and try to achieve a lot more.

  6. Yes! I’ve created geniuses in my family. Why, I make it a point kasi to encourage my kids to do their thing and just be the ever-supportive father to them.

    I may not have kids of my own yet. But I have always helped nurture my nieces and nephews by encouraging them to pursue their hopes and aspirations in life, even at an early age. It helps to encourage them to try and discover new things, rather than negate the things that they want to do in the future. They should be able to express themselves freely. 🙂

  8. We play a vital role in our children’s future and that is to support them in whatever field they are most likely to get inclined. Giving them the freedom to discover their own talents whether they would succeed or not is the most important thing they would need.

  9. For me, becoming a genius is innate in all of us. We just need to expand and expand until we reach our top potential. That’s nature plus nurture. 🙂
