I was reading the threads and wondering why they are from 2005 and nobody was posting here.
Yeah, the title was confusing, as I thought 'gifted' was a PC term for 'mental problems'...if that makes any sense.
After reading, though, I am realizing I do have 'gifted' children. I just thought they were called 'extremely intelligent', though. I always got suggestions for 'gifted' programs and just turned away because I thought they were saying my kids were deficient or something.
I guess I really don't know much about this subject. I do know my kids are way smarter than me and the oldest had her IQ tested and it was 132, and I was told that she should see a specialist so she could get into a 'gifted' program. I thought it meant they were saying she was really 'dumb' and needed help, but then I was looking at scores and I guess it is really high.
She is now 10 years old and wants to take college classes, but still remain with her peers/age group. I did find a school that will let her do so, and has been letting her do schoolwork that is 5th grade level, but I still don't know what that really means.
Okay, I am done rambling and off to read more threads to learn more.
