IQ--It's All in the Family.
Miller, Phyllis, Ed.
Mensa Research Journal, n42 Fall 1999
This issue of a research journal on gifted education examines a number of research projects that delve into questions of how family life affects intelligence, especially among gifted children. Specific articles include: (1) "Are We Raising Smarter Children Today?" (Wendy M. Williams), which discusses the effects of school-related factors on test scores and home-related factors affecting intelligence; (2) "Schooling, Intelligence, and Income" (Stephen J. Ceci and Wendy M. Williams), which examines the evidence for linkages among schooling, intelligence, and income and concludes that intelligence and schooling have a bi-directional relationship, with each variable influencing variations in the other; (3) "Preaching to the Choir: TV Advisory Usage among Parents of Gifted Children" (Robert Abelman and E. Jean Gubbins), which finds that parents of gifted children are more likely to utilize TV ratings information in the mediation of their children's viewing; (4) "Childhood Sibling Relationships of Eminent Canadian Women" (Carolyn R. Yewchuk and Grace A. Schlosser), which found that half of their subjects experienced close sibling relationships and often expressed their own responsibility as well as rivalry within the sibship; (5) "Birth-Order Effects in the Academically Talented" (Wayne D. Parker); and (6) "Families of Gifted Children in Taiwan" (Wen-Chuan Hsueh and Sidney Moon). (Chapters include references.) (CR)
