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 +

Welcome readers from Italy

Today, I note that there are many hundreds of readers from Italy: welcome. The blog is quite large, so feel free to browse around and come back another time: it is impossible to read it all in one sitting.

There is much to read on Ainan, his gifted brothers and all matters relating to gifted children in general.

Hi! I think there are so many readers from Italy because the story of Ainan was published on an Italian newspaper today. I myself am from Italy. I wish you all the best.

Dear Mr Cawley, I live in Italy at the moment, and perhaps can solve this little mystery for you. A brief article about this blog appeared on newspapers today - I, myself, found out about it thanks to that. If you wish, I can provide you with a scan of the article, and translate it for you. I've just read some of your previous entries and wanted to thank you for sharing your extraordinary experience. I wish to you and your family all the best and hope your blog will help raising consciousness about genius... Italy being one of many countries that do very little to support child prodigy (access to university is granted by legal age, not I.Q., etc). ~Hroswith

Thank you Alice for your beautiful sentiments. I too have hopes for Ainan - and I think he could do many wonderful things with the right support.

Best wishes to you.

P.S: Your English is fine.

Thank you Hroswith for keeping me informed. Please scan any article you have seen - and I would be delighted to learn what it might mean, too.

I am sorry to hear that Italy doesn't make way for prodigious children: I think all countries should do what they can for them. Many good things can come of allowing them to grow at their own pace.

Thank you for your warm words.

Kind regards

Hello, I write to you from Italy and I have read with much astonishment the news of Ainan… I hope that it succeeds more to having much fortune… than which has already.
Kiss, Catia

Thank you Catia for your well wishes: they are heart-warming to receive. I, too, hope that Ainan grows further in the years ahead: that is what I endeavour to do - to help achieve his potential.

Best wishes to you.
