  1. It is fascinating how some children have such huge IQs and marvelous as to what they accomplish. It sad, however,that many of them do not adjust well to society. They don’t seem to fit in well with other children and are too young to fit in with older people!

    • My son’s best friend’s brother is specially gifted. But he does lack social skills. A friend of mine is a child psychologist and she said that there is a theory that the brain kind of evens out the specially gifted area but taking away from other areas. She said explained it like this: You would have 10 pieces in each area to start with. 10 in the area of social skills, 10 in lets say math, 10 in languages, 10 in science, 10 in movement, 10 in coordination and so on. Now imagine a specially gifted child/person. They would suddenly have 20 in one area. To even the total out, we have to take away from other areas. If the person is lucky, it’s distributed equally. But usually it isn’t. So in that little guys case the majority was probably taken from the social skills area of the brain…
      Does that make sense? It makes sense for me but I got the “professional” explanation…
      I think it’s highly interesting. Human beings are so strange and full of surprises and although we tend to think we know everything we just don’t.
