Publisher's Description

Your child is smart, but does he or she believe it?

"Smart" is a power word. Children who believe they’re smart excel more in school and approach life with greater confidence. But children who don’t can struggle to apply themselves. Do you wish your child could see how smart he or she is?

Find hope in 8 Great Smarts. You’ll be empowered and equipped with new language and creative ideas for how to:

  • Accept and affirm your child’s unique smarts
  • Motivate your child to learn and study with all 8 smarts
  • Reawaken any "paralyzed" smarts
  • Redirect misbehavior in new, constructive ways
  • Guide your child spiritually, relationally, and to a good career fit

Dr. Kathy Koch loves seeing children flourish and helping parents make it happen—and it’s never too late to start. Now is the time to help your child be all that God designed him or her to be.

For children of all ages, this application of the theory of multiple intelligences is a revised edition of How Am I Smart?

Editorial Reviews

"I was aware that each one of us have different talents and we should develop them the best we can. But I never thought that they were different types of intelligence, or "smarts" as the Author calls them. This book was really helpful to understand and identify the different types of intelligence we all have, the ones that are stronger and the ones we can improve. It also shows how we can interact and teach our children these smarts, which are the types of career linked to each smart and for me, the most interesting part was to know how is the best way that each smart can relate to God and serve others."

    Children are so uniquely created and have an amazing potential. For parents it's important to understand the intelligences children have and reinforce them, improve them so that they can use all 8 smarts. Thinking with words, questions, pictures, melodies, movements, touch, patterns, people or reflections are opportunities to reinforce, reactivate and empower children's abilities. There is a need to work on the non utilized smarts, accepting and understanding children's capabilities. Behavior can be redirected in new positive ways and children can be guided spiritually, in the area of their relationships and choosing of the appropriate carrer. Dr. Kathy Koch is doing a great job in presenting this book with lots of practical applications in an insightful and practical way. I received a copy of the book from the publisher for this review.

    In "8 Great Smarts," Kathy Koch identifies eight major areas of intelligence and explains how parents can nurture these smarts in their children. The author shares from her experience as a speaker and teacher on how discovering and growing each of these smarts are critical for utilizing our abilities to our greatest potential. Koch emphasizes that every individual is unique in the combination of smarts that they possess which is a combination of what God has bestowed upon us at birth and the result of how we developed these smarts over time. For example, a child who is talented in music may not necessarily realize his or her full potential if parents do not observe this innate ability at an early age and introduce the child to different types of music or instruments. Moreover, the author reminds readers that it is never too late to work on each smart in order to gain greater aptitude despite her observation that early exposure yields the most enduring results. Nevertheless, the author states that once we identify the smarts that we have, we should also be aware of the benefits and dangers of each smart. For example, someone who is people smart may be a cheerful encourager but that same individual can use charisma to manipulate those around them. As a whole, the book is fairly practical dealing with areas such as possible future careers for each smart along with suggestions such as games and family activities to grow the different smarts in young children.

    A caution that I would like to highlight concerning the book's message is that we may end up becoming overly focused on our children's smarts and successes which can easily lead to pride and selfish ambition. Also, we need to remind our children that each of us have our unique weaknesses. God may certainly choose to grow us in the areas where we are lacking however He may also be asking us to rely on others who have abilities that are beyond or different from ours to make up for our shortcomings. We are told in the Bible that He has given each of us as members of His body different talents and gifts that are useful for the building up of His kingdom together.

    I would recommend this book as a good starting point to discovering the abilities that God has gifted to each of us. Instead of conforming to how most people would define smartness, Koch states that every person is smart in a different way depending on how those smarts have been developed. I especially appreciate the author's focus on the spiritual aspect of stewarding one's smarts. Koch reminds readers that it is of first importance that we use our smarts to edify the church and bring glory to God. Moreover, as parents, we have the responsibility to help our children discover the abilities that God has endowed them with and look for opportunities to grow these smarts accordingly.

    In compliance with Federal Trade Commission guidelines, I received a review copy from Moody Press in exchange for a book review.
