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 +

Happy 5th Birthday Fintan.

Fintan is 5 today. Happy Birthday, my son!

The tale of his day's activities will have to wait until tomorrow...but I just wanted to mark the day with this brief post.

Personally, I think it rather incredible that five years have passed since I first saw him enter the world. Now he is a big, sturdy young boy full of enthusiasms and well observed comments. How quickly it all happened.
