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 the Oriental Philosopher.

A couple of days ago, Tiarnan, two, was busily proving that light couldn't pass through him. He was trying to sit on his mother's lap while she sat at the computer, fruitlessly trying to see what she was doing.

"Get off my lap Tiarnan...I am trying to work!", she pointed out, as he shifted unhelpfully in her lap.

She tried to push him off.

He resisted, looking up at her and saying: "Your lap is my lap!"

She relented. There was a wonderful poetry in the concept, "Your lap is my lap." that she could no longer resist.

It seems that Tiarnan has all the makings of an Oriental philosopher, coming out with catchy little thoughts that one just can't forget.
