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 +

Athleticism in a baby opens the door to the world

Tiarnan Hasyl Cawley is an athletic baby. Athletic in the sense that he was mobile from a very early age: raising his head and looking around on the day of his birth, crawling at four months and one week, climbing down stairs at five months and two weeks and up stairs at eight months exactly. Here we see Tiarnan opening the door...controlling its movement while not losing his own balance as he manouevres it open. These photographs were taken about a week ago. Tiarnan is now eight months old.

Ainan Celeste Cawley showed even greater precociousness of movement - but, at that time, we were naive parents who did not know enough about children to make a detailed record of his unusually fast progress. We have some photos however and will upload some in due course.
