Encourage Children to be More Social If You Want them to be Bright

Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, developmental psychologist, professor at Temple University, and co-author of Becoming Brilliant: What Science Tells Us About Raising Successful Children, and her co-author Roberta Golinkoff from the University of Delaware believe that children should be assessed in the six Cs: collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation, and confidence. And it is the role of parents to encourage children in these six areas. There are then levels to each of the six Cs, which reflect how strong you are in each skill, and Golinkoff and Hirsh-Pasek say parents can use the system to evaluate their own relationship with their children too. The authors believe it is crucial that parents supplement what children learn in school and they stress that social interaction – rather than gadgets – are crucial.
