Elderly Couple Says They Can Create ‘The Most Highly Intelligent Multilingual Child In America’

WHEELING, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A sixtysomething Illinois couple are coming out of retirement to prove that they can turn an infant into a genius.

Marsh Kaminsky, a retired CPA, says he and his wife Julie are looking for a family with a 12- to 20-month old child that will allow the couple to move in and teach the tyke how to read English with additional immersion in Chinese, Russian and French.

Kaminsky explains, “We’re trying to prove – and I know absolutely we’ll prove it – that intense brain stimulation at a young age will produce a child that is extremely bright and talented.”

The CPA-turned-educator taught his own son to read at the age of two. He explains, “I did it because I couldn’t stand doing tax returns all day. The kid ended up reading at a 4th or 5th grade level before he entered kindergarten.”

Kaminsky says this project is more than just creating a genius, it’s about the child fulfilling its potential.

He admits the word “genius” may have some negative connotations, but notes, “Saying all geniuses are unhappy is like saying all rich people are unhappy. A bunch of baloney!”
