To complete this How-To you will need:

A child
A vacation (optional)

Step 1: Hug and play with your child

Hug and play with your infant child. The loving connection formed will provide the foundation for your child's higher thinking skills.

Step 2: Talk, listen, and read

Talk, listen, and read to your child to develop their language and communication.

Step 3: Introduce new things

Introduce your child to new activities and different approaches to attacking problems.

Tip: Taking a vacation is a good way to introduce your child to new experiences.

Step 4: Identify their interests

Identify your child's interests -- the ones that make them spark. Foster those interests.

Step 5: Applaud their efforts

Focus your praise on their efforts, not their intelligence. Stress the importance of hard work and dedication.

Tip: Children who are often praised for their intelligence tend to shy away from challenging activities.

Step 6: Feed healthy foods

Feed your child a high-protein diet full of natural carbohydrates from fruits and whole grains.

Step 7: Exercise

Encourage your child to exercise. It will make them strong and produce more brain cells in the process.
