    It usually occurs through natural stimulation.

    Infants mature quickly but at very different rates.

    I'm guessing you're gonna be one of those controlling parents. Couldn't even wait for it to be in school? Disgusting.

    Teach him to read then tell him to read like whenever you see a sign or something. Make sure he asks questions about things he doesn't understand.

      make sure the child is healthy as this would make him/her a more confident person overall which benefits his education.

      peaceful classical music is a must, it would sway his personality so he avoids the wrong crowds when he gets into primary/ secondary education. I would strongly recommend: Michael Giacchino - Parting words.

      Lastly, try to teach him/her about maths without actually telling them i.e. playing around with toy bricks, 2 bricks and 1 brick = 3 bricks etc. And make sure you speak very good English around your child, that way he can learn to copy your speaking style (which is pretty much inevitable).

      But DON'T control his/her life. Rub it in slowly

      My mum used to read to me a lot and encourage me to read. my reading age is well above average and i feel i can understand and learn easily,

      perhaps not related but without blowing my own trumpet i did pretty well out of it.

      Play them Bach - or was that in the womb? maybe it's already too late.

      In my entirely inexperienced opinion it's good to not discourage them from asking lots of questions and to answer them as well as you can... I'm pretty sure my intellectual curiosity (such as it is) is down to my dad patiently dealing with a barrage of questions about how the world works when I was that age and a bit older.

      Attainment is IMO mostly down to work anyway - so encourage them to always try their best whatever they do and reward them for effort.

      easy for childless me to say I'm sure.

      Just generally stimulate their brain by asking lots of questions, discussing lots of things and encouraging them to read?

      Just remember cos you have a clever kid, doesn't mean you'll have a clever adult. I actually think its better to teach more self restraint and motivation etc, I was a bright kid but I've never been motivated thus never managed to get the grades I was capable of achieving.

      Why can't you just be happy with your child and teach him/her how you would naturally without pressure. Urghh reminds me of those beauty pageant mums.
      Why must you assume such foolish things? :rolleyes:
