How old is your gifted child? When did you realize your child was gifted?
My gifted son is almost 7 1/2-years-old. In all honesty, I knew there was something about him early on but my husband and I were so consumed with his reflux, colic, and failure to thrive that our thoughts were elsewhere.
Was there a certain lightbulb moment or event?
The lightbulb moment for us was the day that my son came downstairs after nap and read an entire book to us. He was four. The book was a new one, one that we had yet to read to him. The first time he read to me, he read an ENTIRE book. I was dumbfounded, in awe, paralyzed by what it meant.
