A clever toddler who is home-schooled by his parents already knows the different parts of the human anatomy at just two-years-old.
Kimberley Hemmings-Jarrett and her husband, Julian, teach their young son, Jace, at their home in Philadelphia, with a technique they have named ‘the Jace method’.
The toddler easily labels the diagram with the correct body parts even calling the organs by their correct names as his Mum encourages him.
Kimberley said: “I never actually set out to ‘teach’ him more than ABC but when he caught on so quickly that I scrambled to find more and more content to challenge him which led us to things like what you see in the video.
“His memory is really good and he fixates on new things he is interested in until he learns them.
“Even though his memory is very good but he is most knowledgeable about anything involving words he can read or colors and shapes.
“I think all kids should be introduced to the basics early, ABC, counting, colours, shapes. These are the building blocks of everything they will learn and the earlier you can encourage them to enjoy doing them the more receptive they become to more things.”
Both Kimberley and Julian, who moved to the US from Jamaica to study for their PhD say they have no intentions of turning Jace into a child Genius.
She said: “I have no intention for Jace to be a super genius baby, I just want him to enjoy learning and I never want to limit him because I think, or society tells us, he’s too young.
“Science says that the brain grows the most between ages 0-5, kids are most receptive to new things, they are more eager and more willing to learn, so why not take advantage of this time and lay a good foundation?
“I never force him to do anything.”
