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 +

The Year of the Golden Pig

Happy Chinese New Year, everyone! This is the Year of the Golden Pig.

The Chinese belief goes that any child born this year will enjoy great material wealth and happiness - since the pig is born under the influence of gold. As anyone who knows anything of Chinese culture will know, money is the great goal of most Chinese. Therefore, in Chinese countries (and Singapore, for instance, is over 70 per cent Chinese), it is possible there might be a surge in the birth rate, as parents try to have a child born in such a lucky year. We will see.

Have a great year, all, newborn or not.
