I choose #MultipleIntelligence because it will give my daughter an endless zest for life’s adventures.
That’s what I wanted for Gwen. Because I believe that success in life is not only measured by the grades in school. It is how you will live your life, make an impact and a difference in the lives of the people you meet.
Howard Gardner, Hobbs professor of education and cognition at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, said that: “It was generally believed that intelligence was a single entity that was inherited, and that human beings – initially a blank state – could be trained to learn anything, provided that it was presented in an appropriate way. Nowadays, an increasing number of researchers believe precisely the opposite; that there exists a multitude of intelligences, quite independent of each other, that each intelligence has its own strengths and constraints…”
I’m lucky that Gwen is still young and I have a lot of opportunity to prepare her for success. I enrolled her in school not because of the academics part (although it’s a bonus) but I want her to be people smart and interact with her classmates. We bring her to our travels, let her run around in parks and playgrounds because I want her to by body smart. I just want to open her doors into everything, to be brain smart, people smart, and body smart.
