A few months ago an article was published via BBC entitled, "The 'Hidden Talent' That Determines Success." (Find the full article here.) That "hidden talent" is not a high IQ, a certain certification, or even experience - it's a person's "CQ" or "cultural intelligence." For a high CQ, start exposing your child to cultural diversity while they are still young. Start now! Simply introducing them to the concept of different cultures, cuisines, music, architectural styles, etc. can do wonders for their developing brains - AND - give them a jump-start on accepting and engaging with others from around the world in both their personal and professional lives.
