Upon our children -- how they are taught -- rests the fate -- or fortune -- of tomorrow's world.

Intelligence is a person's capacity to (1) acquire knowledge (i.e. learn and understand), (2) apply knowledge (solve problems), and (3) engage in abstract reasoning.
Intelligence is not fixed upon certain measurement and only limited when kids are born. Every person develops intelligence with various ways which are known as
Multiple Intelligences. Mozart, a genius musician is a composer and symphonist who is an example of one with musical intelligence, while Einstein is one of the world scientists who has logics and mathematics intelligence. Is Einstein more intelligent that Mozart? Seen from the theory of multiple intelligences,
Einstein and Mozart are equally intelligent, but they are different fields. Thus, your children have the chance to develop their intelligence in various fields.

There are 8 intelligences, which are language intelligence, logics/mathematics intelligence, visual-spatial intelligence, musical intelligence, motion intelligence, nature intelligence, social intelligence, and self intelligence. Every person is likely to have them, but has dissimilar development.

For years, teachers have been developing strategic instruction to create an interesting learning activity. Schools adopt Multiple Intelligences through reports
of academic test approach that cover areas of intelligences in art, music, education, physics, social relation, self understanding, and nature interest. As parents,
you probably ask how to help the kids learn? The answer is out Here! You can help your children grow smarter by exploring them with various activities.

It’s a pity if parents too much force their wishes to their children that the kids couldn’t develop their ability optimally. Never let yourself as parent late to recognize your child’s potential since it can disturb his/her intelligence in the future. Age 3 and 5 are the golden period for babies’ brain development.
At the age 10, children’s brain ability has been built well.
