How a child plays shows their strengths and abilities in creativity and social skills. It encourages them to think for themselves, and to be their own person. One can learn a lot from watching a child play.
Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist. He developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. Einstein's work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science -
Einstein was said to be a very slow talker as a child. He is said to not have begun speaking until around the age of five, which worried his parents into believing that he might be "slow." Today the term "Einstein Syndrome" is used to categorize exceptionally bright children who display a delay in speech.
Einstein was slow in learning how to speak. His parents even consulted a doctor. He also had a cheeky rebelliousness toward authority, which led one headmaster to expel him and another to amuse history by saying that he would never amount to much. But these traits helped make him a genius. (A childhood portrait ot Albert Einstein and his sister, Maja. HULTON ARCHIVE/GETTY)
Albert Einstein's childhood report card disproves theories that he was a bad student. "Urban legend firmly states that Albert Einstein was a below average student and only excelled when he gave up such trivial pursuits as a school education. However, a very rare manuscript has proven that Albert Einstein was not only a good student, but had the early signs of a genius."
