Summary
What is intelligence? What can parents and teachers do to nurture it when it isn't obvious and support it when it is? Drawing on insights from current brain research, Dona Matthews and Joanne Foster show that intelligence is not fixed -- rather, it can be increased. Through myriad anecdotes from personal experience and case studies, they reveal how parents can identify a child's abilities, foster creativity, and bolster effort and persistence. They also address how to prevent or alleviate emotional and social problems, and how to embrace failures as learning opportunities. "Beyond Intelligence" is an essential guide for parents and educators, offering practical suggestions and strategies for raising smart, well-balanced, happily productive children
