Your Gifted Child Is Our Future

Aug 18, 2007
The importance of educating children cannot be overstated. In today's headlines are many stories about the public school systems failing to properly educate our young ones; the next generations, they are truly the future of this country. Gifted children should be encouraged all the more. If a gifted child gets bogged down in what is today this country's education nightmare, it will be a genuine waste. You cannot let that happen.

Take advantage of the programs available for gifted children. Please, do not take for granted that their education will be well-attended to by the educators of our public school systems. Teachers are a great resource; we need more of them. They cannot manage today's problems and give your children the amount of time, attention, and resources they need to become the best students they can be.

You want your children to grow and learn to the best of their ability. Today, you need to help them more than ever before; help them to reach their goals. Intelligence is characterized by many factors. No child should be short-changed because a teacher or advisor decides for them that they don't require any more knowledge about a certain subject than they already possess. No child should be judged on the basis of an IQ number alone. One statistic does not a whole person make. With encouragement and specialized options that children have available now, you can help them become so much more and get more from their lives than you ever thought possible. With just a little encouragement and assistance, they might be able to dream of higher goals for themselves and . . . attain them! That is too incredible an opportunity to pass up.

There are those who believe that intelligence is inherited. Others believe it is all attributable to one's environment. Intelligence is a mix of factors, not just one extreme or the other. You can't deny your children the chance to discover all the potential of who they can be. Your children need the opportunity to grow as high as their abilities will allow.

The hereditary side of the argument is one you can't really control. Let's speak to the environmental aspect of nurturing a child's intelligence. Again, in today's world, so many priorities seem to be out of balance. It's a busy world and the majority of parents must both work away from the home to meet their expenses. Children often, unfairly and unintentionally, feel the loss of contact with their parents. Parents do their best to make time for their children, as teachers often do; it's just in today's society, time is often what's lacking. Time and attention, and not when a parent is out-of-sorts after a bad day at the office, is what's needed. This is what parents must concentrate on. This is what they must focus on: real time and attention for their children.
