Due to the ongoing pandemic, the upcoming school year seems poised to be stressful for children and parents alike. If you’re already feeling the pressure, I think our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Intelligence: Discovering Your Child’s Unique Gifts” will be a big help to you.
Dr. Kathy Koch is sharing how to identify and understand how your kids best learn. She says that one factor can make the difference between a school year filled with conflict and frustration, and one of peace as you work with your children’s learning styles.
Not every child is good at math or history. Not every child likes to read or has a stellar memory. That’s largely because, like their personality traits, children have unique styles of intelligence.
Dr. Koch fully describes how intelligence style will free you and your children from many typical education struggles.
As you’ll hear from our discussion, every child is smart. It’s just not always recognized or developed in the specific ways that schools educate and test. When kids know the specific ways that they’re smart, they’ll feel capable of striving for and achieving everything God has planned for them in their lives.
I hope you’ll tune in for “Intelligence: Discovering Your Child’s Unique Gifts” on your local radio station, online, on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or on our free phone app.
I’d also like to extend an invitation for you to become a special partner with us through our monthly “Friends of Focus on the Family” program. When you do, I’ll send you a copy of Dr. Koch’s book 8 Great Smarts: Discover and Nurture your Child’s Intelligences as a way of saying “thank you” for touching others with the love of Christ. To make your pledge, or for more information, visit our website or call 1-800-A-FAMILY (232-6459).
