The Socialist Backdrop and Your Kids Smarts: (Forum Agenda below)

Intelligenzaktion - was a genocidal action of Nazis against Polish elites (teachers, doctors, priests, community leaders etc.) as part of an attempted complete Germanization of western regions i.e. remove the thinking people so the masses will follow.  The Socialist’s 45 goals have much the same agenda; they are aimed at dumbing down society - starting with children.  (See #’s 17,21,25,29,31,32,41 in) http://www.beliefnet.com/columnists/watchwomanonthewall/2011/04/the-45-communist-goals-as-read-into-the-congressional-record-1963.html  The Progressive agenda is an “incrementalists” approach – small steps not perceived by the public to re-program our kids minds.  

Society’s attitude suggests that “smart kids win” and “dumb kids lose” – are your kids flourishing?

Smart is a Power Word - Children who believe they’re smart excel in school and approach life with greater confidence.  Children who don’t can struggle with applying themselves.  Do you wish your child could see themselves as smart?  Dr. Kathy will help you discover and nurture your child’s intelligence. 

  • Looking at “8 Great Smarts” – multiple measures, multiple opportunities.
  • How does recognizing “their smarts” affect my kids flourishing?
  • What are the dangers of a narrow view of intelligence?
  • Brain development vs. smarts – what can I do?
  • How do I cultivate an environment that develops “Johnny’s” intelligence- giftedness?
  • What has been the influence of technologies on young people’s beliefs & behaviors?
  • What lies will hinder their smarts development?
