Publisher's Summary

In just a few years, today's children and teens will forge careers that look nothing like those that were available to their parents or grandparents. While the US economy becomes ever more information-driven, our system of education seems stuck on the idea that "content is king", neglecting other skills that 21st century citizens sorely need.
Becoming Brilliant offers solutions that parents can implement right now. Backed by the latest scientific evidence, this book introduces the "6Cs": collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation, and confidence, along with ways parents can nurture their children's development in each area.

Absolutely Brilliant!

Brilliant evidence based book on emphasis of "creativity", and not to hinder children's natural growth.

I appreciate the fact that this book provided tremendous contemporary examples of people who took risk and allowed creativity.

For an helicopter mom like myself, it is eye opening to know that what I have been doing is setting up our children boundaries and for failure.

Creativity is so important, and open ended questions are so important in raising children.

I am so glad that I am stopped from my wrong track early enough to change the course of our children's upbringing.

If you are looking for a book on methods and tips on how tos. This is not the book for you. However it is an excellent book for you to have a greater vision on how you can foster and allow your children to become brilliant and confident beings.
