    it's just wrong - there was a lad at my eldest sons first school who was super intelligent....the parents fought and fought for him as he was so bored at school and they just couldn't afford to send him for all the tests etc that were required in order to prove his intelligence.

    Oh dear G-d. The child needs are special and very complex!

    He needs socialization, or so we think, eh? Keeping him stimulated is the key.

    Does he interact with other children his age when given the opportunity?

    Jaysus Doc. Maybe he's the one, eh?

    Wow! You must be such a proud parent! It is true, he is as "abnormal" as someone who is greatly below average. However, this would definitely be the side of the coin one would wish for. :D

    That's so exciting! And if he isn't busy tonight, could he read my book on Cognitive and Affective processes and then give me the cliff notes version of it???? :D

    oh i just remembered chris, I think the parents were trying to get their son statemented so he would get the help he deserved.

    They have a gifted and talented department at my eldest sons high school but that's obviously a long way off for you.

    As you say, you want to see him happy and he is still only a little one

    So then perhaps we should just send him America's checkbook...maybe he could balance it for us?

    Has he taught himself Latin yet?

    Seriously, get him a book on Latin.

    Are there any forums out there for parents of scarily gifted children?

    Steven solved the traditional cube by taking all the stickers off and moving them around. A genius of a very different sort.

    thats how I did it my parents were so proud of me , and so upset when they found out

    yes he socialises much much better now than he did, his music helps a lot - the problem is his peers are becoming less tolerant, but onlya little at the moment
