Most guardians and kids get anxious when the word ‘test’ is referenced. While there are benefits to using tests to gauge a child’s progress, there are also drawbacks. Children’s individual abilities can be artificially constrained by test results if too much emphasis is placed on them.
In human history, the idea that a child’s ability to learn is age-dependent is relatively new. For instance, if we travel back to the Middle Ages, we can observe that people at that time viewed age and ability in a different light. Before she was a teenager, Elizabeth I, one of Europe’s most famous and successful queens, was an accomplished philosopher, historian, politician, and multilingual. There is absolutely no evidence in the research to suggest that children of today are incapable.
Therefore, with a collection of education statistics at our disposal, who is in a better position to determine what a child is or is not capable of understanding or learning at any given age? I’m sure any parent who has tried to figure out how the video recorder works for hours only to have their five-year-old fix it in less than ten seconds understands exactly what I mean. When we tell a child something is too complicated for them, they don’t know. We are slowing them down before they even start if we pre-condition them to believe that their abilities are somehow influenced by their age. We are going to assume that we are aware of their capabilities and when they will reach them. Whether they intend to or not, ability tests accomplish exactly this in a more scientific manner. They wouldn’t be tests at all if they weren’t based on predetermined expectations and ability markers, such as simple or complex.
Something to note is that intelligence level doesn’t compare capacity. IQ tests are designed specifically to measure intelligence in some way. High-IQ individuals do not always excel academically. They come from all walks of life, not just academia, and they might or might not have a degree.
There are undoubtedly multiple types of intelligence. In the 20th century, research conducted at the Harvard Graduate School of Education by Professor Howard Gardner challenged the well-established notion that intelligence could only be measured in one way, via an IQ test. According to Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences, humans may possess at least seven distinct intelligences, ranging from kinaesthetic (finely tuned motor control and coordination) to mathematical/logical. Kinaesthetic intelligence, for instance, might be present in successful football players. It’s possible to have mathematical or logical intelligence as an entrepreneur. You might be aware of someone who is also a successful footballer and entrepreneur at the same time. In that case, they would need to be kinematically and mathematically/logically intelligent at the same time.
Whatever kind of intelligence your child possesses, it is always a good idea to begin training his young brain as soon as possible. Home-based training programs are available to help busy parents devote just a few minutes each day to bringing out their children’s best. whose benefits will last a lifetime and have cumulative effects. As early as two months old, you can teach your child to read and do math (yes, even a baby can read). Worldwide recognition is being given to early childhood education, which is now more popular than ever. A child genius may be born, but who is to say that you cannot develop your own child into a genius? The benefits of such early childhood development programs, such as learning math or reading, will be greater the earlier your child begins learning. You can also be a genius creator.
