Understanding ourselves and understanding the way our children and grandchildren learn and process the world is so important. We’re all unique and interact with the world and others the way God made us.

The question isn’t, “Am I smart?” but rather, “How am I smart?” That’s what we’re discussing on this week’s episode of the No More Perfect Podcast. Dr. Kathy Koch is my guest and we’re discussing something she’s passionate about called the 8 Great Smarts.

With remote learning, an increase in homeschooling, and parents more involved in their children’s education than ever before, this is a timely subject. We talk through all eight smarts and how to engage a child in context of the smarts!

When I learned this, it was a game-changer for me as a parent. I’m now a better grandparent because I understand it!Let your child be who God created them to be.

Dr. Kathy was my co-author of No More Perfect Kids. She’s a wealth of wisdom for parents, grandparents, and anyone who works with children!
