9780802402837: How am I Smart?: A Parent's Guide to Multiple Intelligences

Help your children be smart with their smarts.

At one time or another, most kids will ask (or secretly wonder), “Am I smart?” But a better question is, “In what way am I smart?” Dr. Kathy Koch’s down-to-earth and practical guide to the theory of multiple intelligences helps parents and teachers discern and develop their children’s unique wiring.

How Am I Smart? will help you:

  • Identify how your child can best learn and study
  • Explore your child’s characteristic spiritual struggles and his or her ways of connecting to God
  • Learn how you can awaken and nurture your child’s weaker intelligences
  • Uncover how your behavior can paralyze your child’s smarts, and what to do about it
  • Recognize how your child’s misbehavior may be connected to his or her strengths
  • Discover creative teaching methods and potential careers that are ideal for each intelligence

Every child is some combination of the following smarts: word, logic, picture, music, body, nature, people, and self. The sooner you and your child discover his or her best smarts, the sooner you can nurture their potential and help them to flourish and use their gifts for God and others.

From the Back Cover:

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.

For children of all ages, revised edition of How Am I Smart?
