Kid Genuises: How to Make Your Kid Into One!

We all think our kids are superstars. But there are some kids who make our jaw drop. They perform concertos on the world’s grandest stages, play sports like the pros and graduate from college before they even learn to drive. What are their parents doing right? Take a peek at these pint-size genuises and get some parenting pointers along the way!

The Next Tiger-To-Be
When most kids are learning to count on their fingers, Brett Sodetz, 7, was counting his golf strokes. At age 6, the athletic phenom, who can drive the ball 150 yards, beat out 82 players to win the youngest age group at the U.S. Kids Golf World Championship, finishing with a score of 7 under par on the 1,300-yard course. It all started when Sodetz turned 18 months old and his father gave him his first plastic golf club. Since then the family's moved from Chicago to the Nevada desert so the miniature golf prodigy can play year round.
