"Gifted, yet normal' - that is how many gifted children just wither away in their life. In other words,
many gifted children may never be able to show their God-given gift, wonderful skills and abilities, just
because of unknown reasons and causes. More often, this apparent failure is attributed to an inability to
detect their talent and gift in their young age. Gifted children display two stronger sides of their life:
a normal phase and an unproductive one that could be immensely unproductive and life wasting.
This issue deals with a dicey topic that tries to discuss various advantages and disadvantages of nurturing
a gifted child. Parental failure could be the most important reason for gifted children not showing their
true talent. Even after identifying gifted nature in their children, parents may not do much to help children
to harness immense potential that is locked inside the mind and body of the gifted.
On the brighter side, gifted children provide enough inspiration to millions of parents and children of the
world to achieve unprecedented success levels in many areas of life. Take care!
Thought for today:

supposedly measures how smart you are. What you might not have
realised is that the scores or results that people achieve are
adjusted, or 'fiddled'. This is to both get the average IQ to be 100
points, and to make sure that about two-thirds of people will lie in
the IQ band between 85 and 115 points.
