Alright. Hear me out. I know that there is no sure-fire method of doing this, it's purely speculative, etc..., but I want to cultivate a an intelligent child. But a relative of mine is a very smart child, he's 6 or so. I want to find things that could allow me to help create a creative, imaginative, analytical person. The kid is set up for success. He'll get all of the parental support he needs from his parents, including discipline, access to resources, sports, music, anything he wants within reason. The parents are intelligent from a vast amount of experience but not "intelligent" in terms of a creative artist, engineer, doctor, computer scientist, or mathematician. I have the opportunity to help shape this young child, and I'm looking for resources that I can use. Things that helped me would have been toys like Legos, for example. In your opinion, what can I use to cultivate this child in such a way that they can be the best they can be? I don't want to force anything, but I want to be able to provide things that the parents might not think of. Certain toys, games, electronics, etc.... I hope this isn't controversial or anything, I'm just looking to help the guy be an awesome, successful person.
