What is dangerous giftedness, and how to educate the child prodigy?

Only 10 percent of geeks can develop a secondary, adult talent.

All the rest grow up to be ordinary people. Just the fact that the general education program is studied 11 years in school and 5 in the university, they learn in childhood.

According to statistics, there are more suicides among children than prodigals. This is due to the fact that they are geniuses only until pubertal age. And after them there is a tragic disappointment. By this time, they already have time to form an inflated self-esteem and it, and all those around it is already very difficult to get used to the fact that they are the same as all.

Do not force children to grow up ahead of time. This weakens their psyche. Overestimated self-esteem and the desire to always be better than everyone prevents them from making friends. They do not know how to communicate in a team, they find it difficult to establish a personal life. Because in both cases it is necessary to reckon with other people’s interests. And they are not used to this, because they consider themselves exceptional from childhood. They do not know how to lose and they always wait for praise.
