HejKatt Posted November 1, 2012 Share Posted November 1, 2012 This was in yesterday's NYTimes: How Do You Raise A Prodigy? by Andrew Solomon http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/04/magazine/how-do-you-raise-a-prodigy.html?pagewanted=all It's not a tiger mother screed. My main reaction was admiration for the parents who go to such lengths to accommodate their dc's giftedness. Also, I was amused at this quote from a mother: â€œIn America, every kid has to be well rounded,â€ Chloe said. â€œThey have 10 different activities, and they never excel at any of them. Americans want everyone to have the same life; itâ€™s a cult of the average." This hasn't been my experience, but then again I do not have dc who are advanced or gifted. Perhaps some in the Hive want to comment? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
