"This book is not about creating a genius. God does that in the womb, and he doesn't do it very often! Rather, this is a humble attempt to identify certain factors and prime conditions that can foster exceptional spiritual, emotional, and intellectual growth in children."
As Christian homeschooling parents isn't that what our focus should be? We are to help bring out God's gifts in our children and to raise them to honor and obey the Lord in their life. Doug goes into how we can go about this in his book in five simple, yet crucial ways.
He relates the importance of having a Biblical foundation, not just a Bible curriculum. The remaining areas of focus are: developing wisdom, Godly character, positive socialization, and the affects of music. Each chapter goes into depth on one of these areas of focus with scripture, life questions, and positive steps to take. In the back of the book there are more resources listed as well as positive character qualities (such as gratefulness) and corresponding scripture and examples from the Bible of each quality.
"How To Bring Out The Genius In Your Child" is a short book, therefore an easy weekend read, but a book packed full of wisdom and God's truth. This book was a tremendous blessing to me to read and really got me thinking and re-evaluating our own homeschool. This book is positive and uplifting from cover to cover and a MUST HAVE. Whether you have been homeschooling for fifteen years or since last month, this book will be a blessing and minister to you. "How To Bring Out The Genius In Your
Child" is one of those books you keep and re-read, just as I plan on doing.
