I was reading along the other thread about telling other people about our gifted kids and it got me thinking, how much haven other people discussed with their kids about them being gifted.
Personally I have never mentioned the label to dd, but we do talk about the fact that she is doing very well. We have a LOT of behavioural issues with dd so a lot of our discussions centre around that; which I really think is tough on dd. I know that she won't understand if we go into details with her about her "label" that it isnt something she should discuss with other people. She is already singled out at school because emotionally she is rather behind, coupled with a school which isn't offering her the support she needs. On the other hand though, I feel like I should be telling her so she knows that she is a very special girl with a very special ability.
I won't be telling her any time soon though unless we are able to move her to a school which focus' on g&t kids(anyone know any specialist schools in Brisbane?).
So what about other people?
