It’s already difficult enough to raise a child. But there is something even more difficult than raising a child, and that is raising a genius one. They stand out from everybody else, as they are just more advanced than other kids. The education system also doesn’t help them much, because the system is catered towards average kids.
This article from Big Think gives us some advice on how to raise genius kids. But these tips are not only applicable to raising genius children, but also to children in general.
Here are some few tips.
- Expose children to diverse experiences.
- When a child exhibits strong interests or talents, provide opportunities to develop them.
- Support both intellectual and emotional needs.
- Help children to develop a 'growth mindset' by praising effort, not ability.
