The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

This is Syahidah Osman Cawley, mother of Ainan, Fintan and Tiarnan. She comes from a Malay-Bugis heritage, is a gifted artist - and a brilliant cook, which explains why it is difficult to remain slim around here.

Have you considered letting Ainan get started on a blog? He could tell his story - from the very beginning!

Have a fortuitous day.

What a sweet thought, Amy! Yes, it does have a certain resonance to it. I will think it over.

He did actually have a blog at one time, when he was only five, but he didn't maintain it. Perhaps he might in the future.

Thanks for your well wishes...and the same to you.

Yes, i do agree Ainan's Mum is a beauty! On a more serious note, do you think a genius can be nurtured?
