Bring out the best in your children with this book, written with the busy parent in mind. Leading expert Bernadette Tynan, who works with parents, children and teachers, reveals that every child has their own gifts and will excel with a parent’s support. Includes exercises, games and puzzles to develop creative thinking and problem solving skills.
What Tynan shows us today, every parent will do tomorrow.
In this innovative and exciting new book, Tynan, expert in gifted children, explodes the myths about genius. Fascinating facts mix with witty insights for easy-reading. Fun and practical activities for children give them skills to unlock their natural gifts and creativity.
Parents are given straight answers to tough questions: why 'one size doesn't fit all in learning'; what we can learn from the childhoods of geniuses; why genius is made more than born; how to crack school ability and IQ tests; how our brains think and learn; how to tailor-make learning for exam success, and more.
Children's individual gifts come in many different packages, – the trick is to know what to look for and how to nurture them. Tynan shows us how, and places at every child's fingertips the definitive guide to realising their own special gifts in 21C.
