“Intelligence” is referred to the ability to take information and embrace it with different types of skills, understanding it and sending it to one’s environment through a well behaved interaction with the society. (Carter, 2014)

The educational system in the United States extends the term ‘gifted’ to students that have shown a difference in school academics. Germany, Switzerland, and Austria have been climbing the same later. Finland and Denmark, where the education is considered the be strongly competent, where students receive the highest scores in international assessments, offer no distinction of ‘gifted’ in their legislation. What is important to this system is the amount of time children spend with their parents and the individual attention these receive. The emphasis is given to positive discipline. (Slavonic Pedagogical Studies Journal Vol. 4 Issue 2, September 2015) An open and respectful relationship children acquire in their environment transfers the brain to emotional intelligence, a primer ingredient to any education.

The brain’s superhighway is a connection of both emotional and academic amount of information. It is not rather that of competition. Early stages of development (0 – 3) show that the brain is a high end lab. It is at this stage that the highest amount of intelligence and emotional balance are perceived. All children then become highly ‘Gifted’. Environment and genes will determine later on, the exact organization of the brain. The second stage (3 – 12)then is highly impacted in the environment, together with academics to become a whole individual, capable of receiving information and making sound decisions later on. Legislations however, hurry up to create curriculums based on ‘race to space’ instead of that one of emotional sensory and non-discriminatory function in society. The amount of speed happening from the parietal lobes (sensory information) to the frontal lobes (plan and organize) can affect the IQ in detrimental ways.

There is a lot of competitiveness between parents. The importance of the child to be at the highest level of education is so critical, because it determines the position in society. Children take such anxiety to the next level, emerging with a language, ideas, and feelings untrue to empathy. “Mirror neurons are nerve cells in the cortex that are active not only when performing a movement, but also when watching another person. Later on, they play a role in social cognition. Maturation of the part of the brain responsible for an empathetic behavior, the prefrontal cortex, lays on the amount of dopamine or the lack of it” (Ashwell, 2012)

World leaders such as Kim-Jong-Un, Trump, Hitler, among others; perceived as individuals with impulsive behaviour, become stimulus driven, no matter how inapropriate the behaviour may be. A stimulus driven mind has received high levels of anxiety, and less dopamine input. Some extreme cases of not fully maturing the prefrontal cortex, individuals may exhibit antisocial behaviour and/or engage in criminal behaviour. (Ashwell, 2012) Leaders of the ISIS group (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria), who have acquired a high level of education (academics) may have been given an extreme stressful or toxic emotional information making it difficult to seek goals that are of a greater good or long-term mutual benefits. 

In children, especially after 8 years of age, a brain organization of how to negotiate can be established. To earn the recognition of other’s emotions, the orbitofrontal cortex receives given signals of social cooperation through theories of mind. (Ashwell, 2012) Either if we teach discrimination between peers, sharing ideals and values of certain believes, or emphasize competence between them regardless of the emotional distress and toxicity between them, it will highly be detected in adolescence. Yet at this stage, when emotions are at its highest sense of self and others, it can be influential to even a nation and the global order and security.

The nature and nurture affect the ‘IQ’ (Carter, 2014), not only academia. The ability to sensibly be able to see the pros and cons when making decisions is what will determine a high IQ that will turn into a leader affecting the lives of many. Legislations must act to bring order to a stable start to individual success through school curricula. How to understand intelligence will determine how much emotional intelligence we bring to it. The brain will be like a vehicle with engine but no steering wheel. What is being created is what will be.

  1. Lamentablemente, la vida moderna y las exigencias, tanto personales como profesionales de la época actual , y los problemas de toda índole, principalmente de falta de recursos en los sectores altamente vulnerables, llevan a muchos padres a este tipo de conducta con sus hijos menores, y también a los docentes, es deplorable y no se puede permitir, por lo menos en una sociedad que reconozca los Derechos Humanos y el respeto a los mismos.

    El arma más poderosa que tiene un pueblo y aceptable únicamente para transformar la realidad en su Educación: significa plantear un nuevo paradigma y realizar un cambio real, estructural, desde el punto de vista cultural.
    Dejar el conflicto de lado, y buscar su resolución a través de la Mediación y los métodos alternativos, no solo en términos jurídicos, sino sociales, personales.
    No solamente para llegar a una buena negociación que favorezca a las partes, sino que ellas sean protagonistas de un proceso cotidiano de búsqueda de la paz y la armonía.
    Hay que promover la sensibilización de la población, y que de una vez por todas, la sociedad apunte a un trato más amable, donde todos podamos desarrollar nuestras capacidades al máximo, con respeto hacia los demás, y aprovechando la Tecnología para una sociedad más evolucionada e integrada.

    1. Dear Thalia,

      I totally agree with you when you mentioned that Mediation is indeed necessary not only in the stream of Justice, but also in Social and also Personal competency skills that will provide us a better peaceful and harmonious global order.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

  2. Dear Thalia,

    thank you for your thoughts, your input and time. I totally follow your point of view, as the way the majority of our global society measures the value of a person is totally poor. Income, rank, and educational level are the top goals that often determine the social acceptance of a person. If a person or specifically parents decide to follow this path and to raise their children within this dogma, it is totally up to them. For myself, I decided to follow another concept. It would be ignorant to say that a safe income would not help in life, specially when we talk about having a family in future. And it might also be critical to state that a well selected professional education does not guard happiness in life, assuming that the individual finds a fulfillment in this specific task.

    But I believe that the real top end of education may not be found in our school system. It is, as you said, the time that parents spend with their children while supporting them emotionally. I strongly believe that up to 80 % of the parents in task of raising a child are not aware of the worth of these talks, exchanges, and moments of happiness. Imagine the worth that your children have in your life; than multiply it with the time that you can spend with them. The result would let you see that you are a Child-Time-Millionaire. Even though this calculation is corrupt, as our children are priceless, we might follow this idea and assume that we are such a CTM – so, imagine the value that this time would have for your child(ren).

    Investing time in your children is a resource that has no financial equivalent but love and happiness.

    Best regards, Daniel

  3. A very interesting reflection on the influence that parents’ bring/contribute towards the environment, enrichment, enlightenment, and education of their children. So this idea of CTM -Child Time-Millionaire is not only unmeasureable,
    but immensely valuable as well.
    There is a wise words of wisdom which I come across on one of my mediation sessions, one parent said:
    “Children grow and flourish, but it is the parents that provides this environment to make it happen.”

    Thank you for sharing your reflections.
    Best regards from down under, (Oceania)

  4. Thank you dear Daniel, Romina Florencia and Josephine for your valuable feedback.

    I appreciate the two very valid additions to my article. A new term CTM can be of a great use to start new projects in conflict resolution starting with parenting. As Josephine mentions: “Children grow and flourish, but it is the parents that provides this environment to make it happen,” we may even want to remind our children to remember where they come from as the influence outside the home is tripled and crawls into conflicts. Children want to solve problems their peers way or diminish a parent because that is what they see in the environment they most spend time at.

    Romina’s words calling to the society to do an everyday effort to promote mindful communication in our everyday life serves a great juice of wisdom as individuals in the field of mediation.

    Great regards to all of you as well,
    Thalia Veintimilla
