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 has original, world-class content (based on a successful 23 year old program) that is not available anywhere else, and a team of education strategists to advise you in such disciplines as child development, curriculum development, all aspects of learning, special needs, family life and more. The Genius can help you build a strategic plan to discover, nurture and protect your child's genius.
Why is Genie U so affordable?
Ask about our FREE membership! And know that the Basic Membership is kept extremely low because we wanted all parents to have access to this information and community. Our collective future depends on all of our children being happy, successful human beings. Nothing would give us greater joy than to spread this message 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 your child's educators recognize that children do not fit into any one given mold. Each is special, and each has something important to contribute.
Is my child going to win a Nobel Prize if she is a genius?
Well, she probably could if she wanted to! But when we say genius, we mean the spark inside each child - his/er special talent, that when realized, can ignite amazing potential.
Is using the Genius Center hard or time consuming?
The Genius Center was designed for ease of use. You can invest as little or as much time as you like in perusing the materials and suggested resources, participating in the community, implementing the tips, interacting with our advisors, or participating in the suggested activities with your child. It's really up to you. You may even find yourself saying, 'Of course!' as you read much of the material. Many of the ideas that we will expose you to are sound educational theories and practical advice that will resonate with your own intuition.
