Sat, 31 May 2014 22:00:57 +00002014-05-31T22:00:57Z

My son, like many gifted kids, had his favorite subjects to learn about, but we were still always looking for something new to study.  All the holidays and special observances every month gave us ample opportunities to find new topics to explore.

Gifted or Hard-Working?

Fri, 30 May 2014 22:59:18 +00002014-05-30T22:59:18Z

I really do wish people would better understand giftedness and the issues it brings with it. I just read an article from the Huffington Post called Gifted or Hard-Working? Which is Better for Long-Term Success for our Children? It makes some excellent points, but then fails to demonstrate a real understanding of the problem.

Are you an introvert?

Thu, 22 May 2014 22:51:53 +00002014-05-22T22:51:53Z

I am. No doubt about it. When I take those tests that measure introversion and extroversion,  my score invariably ends up as far in the introversion range as it possibly can.  But it's always good to see that I'm not alone and that other people understand us introverts.

Destructive Gifted Kids

Sun, 18 May 2014 23:12:34 +00002014-05-18T23:12:34Z

No, I don't really mean gifted kids are destructive. Maybe a better word to use would be deconstructive.  If you have one of these gifted kids, you know what I'm talking about.

If you are familiar with Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegone, you'll know that it is town "where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the ...

Misdiagnosis of Gifted Kids - ADHD Again

Sun, 11 May 2014 19:35:01 +00002014-05-11T19:35:01Z

I remember years ago starting around the time my son was 5 years old - also the time he started school.  I was told more than once that I needed to have my son "tested" because he had ADHD.  (He was evaluated, and he didn't and doesn't have it.)

Labels and Elite School Systems

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 22:59:50 +00002014-04-30T22:59:50Z

"Labels. They determine if something is healthy or unhealthy, good quality or poor quality, and if someone is intelligent or unintelligent. Labels determine if we succeed or fail. Labels are dangerous."

That's how Brigit starts her article"Why Our Elitist Public School System Hurts Everyone. "I don't agree with her.  Sure, some labels can hurt, but some can be helpful. Labeling a child as "gifted" can help get that child the academic services he or she needs.

Who Wants a Gifted Kid?

Mon, 28 Apr 2014 16:13:34 +00002014-04-28T16:13:34Z

One of the remarks I hear all the time is "Every parent wants their kid to be gifted."  I suspect that the reasoning behind this remark is that parents who claim their children are gifted are just saying that in order to get praise they don't deserve. In other words, they want people to think they are special because their children are somehow special.

Amen, Mike Osborn!

Fri, 25 Apr 2014 12:11:12 +00002014-04-25T12:11:12Z

My introduction to gifted children and their education came when my son entered school. Until then, I was blissfully unaware of the difficulties these children face in school. I'm sure that ...
