Using a raisin to predict how clever your kid will be

Wow! I just read this article and it blew my mind:
"Currant thinking: How a raisin can predict if your child will be clever."

It'd be interesting experiment for those with kids under 3 to conduct. I have never associated delayed gratification with cleverness, so I'm really tickled by the implications. :lol:

No raisin? Can use a marshmallow... or strawberry (healthier).

Like that ah, instead of delaying eating the raisin for a minute DS will think he needs to eat that raisin within the minute. :laugh:
