Do you ever wonder how some people grow up to become brilliant inventors or scientists? Do you ever wonder if your child has what it takes? As numerous researches would show, it is a combination of nature and nurture that cultivates a genius. That is, it is an interplay of heredity and environmental stimulation that makes for a brilliant person.

Apparently, there is nothing much you can do for the former. You can’t control the genes that you pass on to your child (at least, not with conventional ways). But you hold a degree of control for the latter. You must do everything in your power to create an environment that is conducive to your child’s optimal development.

Do not expect to get guaranteed results, though, and wait for your child to actually become a genius. Not everyone has what it takes (remember, there is still the gene factor). And besides, you can’t be too sure if that’s what you really want. Geniuses are bound to live a life beyond the realms of ‘normal’ and this may be too complicated for your liking.

Anyway, your goal is to help your child become the best that he can be, to realize his full potential. Teach him the basics of innovation and invention. Do you know what inventors have in common? They have the ability to recognize a problem and to realize the value of things around them. They have just the imagination necessary to recognize - and even create - value out of every conceivable tool.

This is not a difficult lesson to teach. You can do this in your little ways. How about buying your child a toy storage? Teach him to recognize that this charming thing is not only there to store his stuff, but it also solves the problem of clutter and it helps him find his toys when he wants them, minus the confusion of having to go look for them. Watch your child apply the same lesson to many other things in life.
