Frequently Asked Questions
I've never seen anything like the Genius Center. What exactly is Genie U?
A Parent's Best Friend! The
Genius Center came from the hearts and minds of two parents who KNEW all children
have genius and yet realized that many parents struggle to insure their child's
genius is realized within educational systems. The Genius Center coaching
is based on a successful 23 year program that was once available online and
now focuses on working with parents one-to-one in a coaching relationship to
assis parents with educational disciplines such as as child development, curriculum
development, learning techiques and planning as they balance educational needs
with family and community life.. The Genius coaches can help you build a strategic
plan to discover, nurture and protect your child's genius.
Our collective future depends on all
of our children being happy, successful human beings. Nothing would give us
greater joy than to spread the message and understanding that "all children
have genius" to as many parents as possible.
How can ALL children have genius?
Every child has unique gifts and talents
that make them special. One child may not be as gifted academically as another
for instance, but may be extremely talented in cooking, sports or art. Our goal
is to help you and through you, your child's educator,s recognize that children
do not fit into any one given mold. Each is special, and each has something
important to contribute.

talent, that when realized, can ignite amazing potential.
