Children’s intelligence and intelligence quotient are completely two different concepts.
Intelligence refers to the general mental ability of all living things. For human beings, it is a kind of ability to know and understand objective things and use one’s own knowledge and experience to solve problems. It is also called wisdom or intelligence.
IQ is what we usually call IQ. It is a term used in intelligence tests in psychology, that is, quotient of intelligence.
Scientists divide IQ into two categories, one is ratio IQ, that is, intelligence age ÷ sufficient age = intelligence quotient. If the child’s intellectual age is equal to his real age, the IQ is 100 and the intelligence level is medium. The other is dispersion IQ, which refers to the ratio of a person’s test score to the average intelligence of normal people of the same age group as IQ. The latter is mostly used in current intelligence tests.
For a person, there are many factors that determine intelligence, such as memory, reaction speed, creativity, thinking ability, etc. The IQ is usually a comparison between the age of intelligence and the actual age.
In the process of children’s intelligence development, parents’ intelligence quotient is not the decisive factor of children’s intelligence level. Parents’ genetic gene is like an undiscovered mineral deposit. Only through proper and reasonable development and use can its true value be brought into play.
Therefore, for mothers, early understanding of the difference between intelligence and IQ and giving children correct early education are beneficial and harmless to children’s intelligence development.
Recommendation 1: Know the normal value of children’s IQ
Since the emergence of intelligence tests, it has become easier to find out the differences in intelligence between people. For parents who are eager to teach their children, there is no doubt that this is another way of discovery on the road of ” looking forward to the success of their children and the success of their daughters”.
Zhang Ming’s mother took Zhang Ming to relevant institutions for an intelligence test and got confused, because the test results showed that Zhang Ming’s IQ level was 80, while some children’s test results reached more than 90, which made her wonder whether her children’s intelligence level was lower than that of other children.
As to how much IQ is a normal value, experts have long come to the conclusion that those with extremely high IQ ( IQ above 130 points ) and extremely low IQ ( IQ below 70 points ) are in the minority, while those with medium or near-medium IQ ( IQ between 80 and 120 points ) account for 80% of the total population.
To sum up, Zhang Ming’s intelligence level is very normal among children of the same age.
Recommendation 2: Understand the constituent elements of intelligence.
Element 1: Observation refers to the ability of a child’s brain to observe external things. Most children discover some novel things through observation. In the process of observation, they will make a brand-new cognition of sound, smell, etc. in order to improve their understanding of the essence of things.
Element 2: Attention, which refers to a child’s mental activity and ability to pay attention to something with all one’s heart. If a child can play with a toy with all one’s heart without being disturbed by the outside world, it means that he has strong attention.
Element 3: Memory is a child’s ability to remember, maintain, and recognize and reproduce an objective thing.
Element 4: thinking ability, which is the child’s brain’s indirect and generalized response ability to some objective things, that is, his classification and induction ability.
Element 5: Imagination is the child’s ability to create a new image based on the existing image, which requires the child to accumulate certain knowledge before completing.
A simple understanding of the above-mentioned factors that constitute intelligence can enable parents to have a better understanding of the development of children’s intelligence and be more targeted.
Recommendation 3: Understand the objective conditions that restrict intelligence.
As many articles have said, genetic genes are the premise of intellectual development. A good genetic condition will provide a better foundation and natural condition for the development of intelligence. The closeness of genetic relationship will directly affect the intelligence level of individuals.
Zhao Na’s parents often go abroad as visiting scholars, so they always put Zhao Na in foster care with grandma in the countryside, hoping to send her abroad when her children grow up.
Their attitude towards education in Zhao Na is: Zhao Na has a very good genetic background, so it is necessary to conduct free-range education in Zhao Na from an early age. There is no need for pre-school education and other auxiliary educational means. After all, they did not receive so-called pre-school education or did any intellectual development when they were young, and they also became talents …
In fact, they do not know that the so-called heredity only provides the possibility for the development of children’s intelligence. In order to turn this possibility into reality, many efforts from parents, schools, society and themselves are needed to realize it.
Scientists have long studied that the more experience a child acquires at an early stage, the faster his intellectual development will be. At the same time, education and teaching, social practice and subjective efforts may change the difference in innate intelligence. Therefore, when it comes to the education of children, parents should not ignore the objective laws of intellectual development, but should let the rules take their course to help their children grow up smoothly.
