Description

Your child is smart, but does he or she believe it?

"Smart" is a power word. Children who believe they’re smart excel more in school and approach life with greater confidence. But children who don’t can struggle to apply themselves. Do you wish your child could see how smart he or she is?

Find hope in 8 Great Smarts. You’ll be empowered and equipped with new language and creative ideas for how to:

  • Accept and affirm your child’s unique smarts
  • Motivate your child to learn and study with all 8 smarts
  • Reawaken any "paralyzed" smarts
  • Redirect misbehavior in new, constructive ways
  • Guide your child spiritually, relationally, and to a good career fit

Dr. Kathy Koch loves seeing children flourish and helping parents make it happen—and it’s never too late to start. Now is the time to help your child be all that God designed him or her to be.

BONUS: Every book includes a FREE access code for the official 8 Great Smarts Quiz located at: www.8greatsmarts.com.

Praise For 8 Great Smarts: Discover and Nurture Your Child's Intelligences

"I was aware that each one of us have different talents and we should develop them the best we can. But I never thought that they were different types of intelligence, or "smarts" as the Author calls them. This book was really helpful to understand and identify the different types of intelligence we all have, the ones that are stronger and the ones we can improve. It also shows how we can interact and teach our children these smarts, which are the types of career linked to each smart and for me, the most interesting part was to know how is the best way that each smart can relate to God and serve others."
