How do we avoid the pressures of branding our kids as gifted?
(a) If they are in a school with other gifted kids (which is probably just 5% of the whole population), how do they learn to interact with the others. When they go for higher education or work they will need to interact with the rest of the world. Will they feel out of place then?
(b) These kids are now branded "Gifted" and might feel pressured with the expectation/tag. How do we help them handle this "status" and still feel normal?
Would love to hear your thoughts.
