My Son is 5 and a half and has special needs of a different kind and was hoping i could find mothers here that are going through the same thing.
R is labelled a "gifted child" he has been tested by child physcologists and given a high IQ. Many think that this is a brilliant thing....which in one aspect is but it is also a double edged sword which not many people realise.
A lot of "gifted children" can suffer from mental illness as their brain works to fast for their age. They over think things and as a result can develop high anxiety. They need to be parented in a different way which can be challenging.
They develop things called over excitabilites, there are 5 of them and can be veiwed as mis behaviour but its just because of ther mind and the way in which it works.
He has a 9/10 year olds mine trapped inside a 5 year olds body.
I would love to know if anyone else here had a child like our R so i had someone who understands.
