Welcome! This series is for the kids – the gifted kids. I want to get to know them a little better, and I wanted to share them with the world. Perhaps this series will help people understand that gifted isn’t better or less, it’s just different. That’s my goal!
Each post contains the response of a different child. Different ages, different personalities, but they’re all gifted. Some are responses by the child, some are scribed by the parent. All names are changed to protect the privacy of the kids. Curious about the names? I’m assigning Greek or Roman god and goddess names to each child based on some defining trait that I see in their answers. I’m running out of goddesses and may have to branch out to other civilizations!
So sit down and read for a bit – it’s interesting to see how different and similar their responses are. And check back now and then – I’m always adding more as I get responses.
Interested in responding yourself? Scroll down to the bottom of the page for the list of questions and a response form. I would love to hear from you too!
