Raising your Gifted Child

Through no fault of their own, your child may alienate his non-gifted playmates. Try to be understanding.

Encourage you child's interest in computers and technology.

Your child may reveal astonishing artistic ability. Encourage this as well.

The structured learning environment of a typical public school may leave your child feeling bored and alienated.

Excuse me, could you direct me to the Nazi section

For some reason, evil fascinates us. Go to the library. There are, maybe, three books on the Quakers. There are shelves and shelves of books about the Nazis. The Quakers had oatmeal. The Nazis had Zyklon-B. The Quakers founded the City of Brotherly Love. The Nazis invaded Poland. Strictly speaking, I'd rather hang out with Quakers. But people want to read about Nazis.
