How did you know that your child was gifted and how old was he ? Was the giftedness obvious or did you have some doubt ?
I am new in this forum and I have two kids (3 yrs and 20 months). My daugther had always been a little bit different.
Physically, she seems to be advanced. She had always been really really active (oh my goodness, she is so full of beans !!!). She can do thinks in the playground older kids can not managed. Verbally, it is hard to tell because we are bilingual so she is average in two languages.
I started to have questions about giftedness when she started doing puzzles. At two, she was doing 20 pieces and now (at 3) she works on 50 by herself or 100 with help. She knows to write her name but I didn't teach her... She wants to learn, she want my help a lot to teach her... She is intense, busy, adorable.
But on so many thinks she seems to be so... terrible three
Not easy every day
So my daughter doesn't seem to be gifted (she doesn't know how to read or write, she doesn't speak better than the average). But there is some of her behavior that are weird sometimes and could be signs of giftedness...
Did you have that feelings with your gifed kids when they were young ?
