Genius is more the ability to overcome obstacles and solve problems creatively than anything else. Albert Einstein was considered retarded as a child and a poor student. But he had a Mercury/Saturn conjunction in Aries that showed his determination to learn and a powerful Neptune/Chiron conjunction in the 10th that aided his creative visualization. Encourage your child to think creatively. Wherever Uranus is in your chart, is where you may be a genius of sorts or at least you have an unusual approach to that area that might be considered ahead of the crowd.
The Einsteins, though Jewish, were non-observant, and their son attended a Catholic elementary school from the age of five until ten. Although Einstein had early speech difficulties, he was a top student in elementary school. As he grew, Einstein built models and mechanical devices for fun and began to show a talent for mathematics. This was taken from Wikipedia. He was not a poor student.
