Raising Smart Kids For Dummies by Marlene Targ Brill

Image
So, you wanna turn Junior into a smarty-pants? What parent doesn't? Thing is, kids nowadays are more independent than ever and aren't always receptive to what parents want. In fact, if you tell your kids that studying is "good for them," they're more than likely to mumble, "Yeah, sure," in your general direction and head off to do something "fun."

Sharpening the minds of your youngsters presents more challenges than climbing Mt. Everest, and the responsibility of making your kids use more of their brain cells can be overwhelming – even when you don't encounter resistance. Raising smart kids requires long-term commitment, sacrifice, and diligence – not to mention the patience of a saint. And as long as you don't obsess about being the perfect parent, you will be able to enjoy your kids' journey of self-discovery right along with them.

But how do you accomplish this? How do you overcome the resistance? How do you tackle the overwhelmin…

6:28:15, February 6, 2036.

At that time, the 4,294,967,295 seconds limit of the digital standard clock engraved inside every computer in the world from the year 1900 overflowed and led to a disastrous situation where every defense and attack system malfunctioned.

Like God’s hammer, the roar of the military satellites that rained down to the earth annihilated major cities around the world in the blink of an eye.

New York, London, Shanghai, Moscow, and then Shinjuku. The dawn after such a large-scale disaster was called the “Sad Morning.”

Is this really humanity’s judgment? If that’s the case, who is this person to judge?

Or is this no more than just a prelude to further disaster?

During this indication of unrest, the curtain is raised on the story of Anonymous;Code. The setting is Nakano, Tokyo, the year 2037.
