My Child is Intense!

Or is He/She Gifted?!

“Hundreds of parents have intense and asynchronous kids and don't even know that they have a gifted child. "~Catherine

What happens when your newborn, baby, or toddler does things that are not in the parenting books

  • say their first word at or before 6 months
  • count or sight read before the age of 2
  • memorize everything and correct you when you get it wrong
  • are intense and on the go


they already know everything that they are doing in Preschool?

they tell you that they don't want to go to school anymore?

teachers tell you that they talk to much, interrupt them, don't complete their work and know that they can do it?
