Raising children who love to learn is a goal of just about every parent but not every parent believes they have the tools to do it properly. By learning how to identify your child’s innate smarts, you will have a unique advantage and a leg up on helping your kids recognize that they really are smart, no matter what the circumstances say. How children view themselves is so important! And as parents, we can help them view themselves correctly.
