All children need to know they’re smart. Being smart empowers them to believe in their todays and tomorrows, to expect some learning to be easy, and to study when something isn’t. Being smart gives them hope. There are 8 distinct and proven ways of being smart (word, logic, picture, music, body, nature, people and self) so why do some children not believe in their abilities? We can parent and teach so they do. Stop asking, “Is my child smart?” and ask “How is my child smart?” While this talk is aimed at parents, teens will also appreciate its content.
