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 +

Tiarnan tells mummy how he feels

Yesterday, Syahidah was playing with Fintan and Tiarnan. She looked at Fintan and said: "I love you", to him.

Tiarnan observed this, tilted his head up at his mother and said to her: "I love you".

This recalls the time Tiarnan said as much to me, many months ago...but it was nice to hear it on his lips, for his mother.

There is a warmth in Tiarnan, fourteen months, that is heartening to see: he is a passionate, emotional baby who responds with his heart to the world. In many ways, that is more delightful to see than any measure of intelligence is: for is not goodness of the heart what brings blessings to every life?

(If you would like to read more of Tiarnan, fourteen months, or his gifted brothers, Ainan Celeste Cawley, seven years and four months, and Fintan, three, please go to: I also write of gifted education, IQ, intelligence, child prodigy, child genius, baby genius, adult genius, savant, the creatively gifted, gifted adults and gifted children in general. Thanks.)
