Homeschooling -The Environment for Genius

Presentation by Diana Waring and Dr. Jay Wile 

In 1957, psychologist Dr. Harold McCurdy investigated the lives of twenty geniuses like John Stuart Mill, John Quincy Adams, and Blaise Pascal. He wanted to find out if there was something about their childhoods that made them become geniuses.  In the end, he found three things that all of them had in common while growing up.  What’s fascinating is that these three elements are typically present in the lives of modern homeschooled children.  In this talk, Dr. Jay L. Wile will present the details of the study and its conclusions, while Diana Waring will share anecdotes and practical advice that will help you incorporate these elements into your homeschooling experience.  They don’t promise that you will raise geniuses, but they do promise that your homeschool will be better for it.

My son is SO bored if he isn't on electronics. We do not have gaming systems, just computer, ipad, and tv/dvds.  I really struggle to get him to be creative on his own.  He is 9 yrs old.  He is addicted to watching Minecraft on YouTube.  We do not have the game.  

Do you have any suggestions for fostering creativity?
