As a Cognitive Hypnotherapist in Windsor Berkshire I naturally have an interest in all things of the mind. And as a parent of 2 boys aged 3 and 1 I am always looking for more knowledge and inspiration to help me bring them up the best way I can. So when my child minder recommended an amazing book on this subject, called The Spark, I had to buy it and read. I am now highly recommending it to other parents and others who are involved in raising children.
The extraordinary memoir of a mother’s love, commitment, and nurturing, which allowed her son, originally diagnosed with autism, to flourish into a universally recognized genius-and how any parent can help their child find their spark.
Today, at Fourteen, Jacob is working on extending Einstein’s theory of relativity, and is a researcher in quantum physics. Yet at three, after an autism diagnosis, Jacob was assigned therapy to develop his lower skills, like trying to get him to talk more. However even though Jacob had barely said a word, Kristine did not give up hope, her amazing belief in the power love, and a belief that every child has a special gift inside of them, and her belief that it is up to a parent to find it and surround that child with the things that support that gift. It is this love and devotion that prevailed and which allowed Jacob’s true potential to flourish, and that changed everything.
In life and as practicing Hypnotherapy in Windsor & Life Coaching in Windsor, I have met many intelligent people, but this young man is something special.
Here is Jacob Barnett on BBC Breakfast. Amazing.
