I think it’s extremely important for parents to know that there are multiple types of intelligences. Gardner tells us of 8:
Each child develops their own personality at their own pace. A mother may be worried that her child isn’t talking and communicating like the other 6 year olds. Gardner lets us know that it’s ok; she may be an intrapersonal learner. Once a learning type is determined, homework and classroom activities could be more specific to the child’s needs. Establishing intelligence types for children is essential in early years of learning. Once it is acknowledged, teaching, nurturing, and discipline for the child will be much easier on the child. In conclusion, I think it is very important to watch how your children grow and interact with other peers to give them the tools that best fit for them.
