This post is sponsored by Great Homeschool Conventions. I have partnered with them for this convention year to bring you homeschool resources!
This week GHC is sharing a fabulous digital freebie from Dr. Kathy Koch, How Am I Smart ?: A Parent’s Guide to Multiple Intelligences.
I am beyond excited to share this with you!
Dr. Koch’s book is based on the research of Howard Gardner on multiple intelligences which talks about how there are different ways we can be smart- 8 ways to be exact. Having read Dr. Gardner’s book in graduate school I can honestly say, Dr. Koch helps parents understand how this research applies to your children. Best of all, she does it through a Christ honoring perspective.
I’ve had an opportunity to hear Dr. Koch speak and I promise this book will change your parenting and homeschooling mindset when it comes to working with your child’s strengths and weaknesses. You’ll learn about how misbehaviors really come from our strengths…wow was that a revelation for me!
The book explains what each of the multiple intelligences are and how to figure out where your child is on the spectrum of each one. My guess is you’ll be able to pinpoint your kids as you read. Dr. Koch will give you insight on the good and the bad of each of the areas of intelligence and how to take this information and apply for your family. Knowing your children’s strengths and what they struggle with helps us all to make wise decisions about where to put our focus. Multiple intelligences offers a different approach and one that is very practical.
How Am I Smart is a powerful tool in learning about how to work with the total package that is your child! Click over and get your digital copy of How Am I Smart: A Parent’s Guide to Multiple Intelligences today! It’s available now through July 31, 2013.
