I was told T is a Mensa child Boyzmom and i do believe he is, he is so intelligent yet so immature with his behaviour and coping with the simple things in life. Thats the in balance within himself and i will never forget being told T will find the simple things in life hard yet the hard things simple, how very true!

I think the hardest thing for them is that people expect their intelligence to be all rounded.

How very true! Coz T is so intelligent the world of professionals over the years have alwasys said he is very bright and he will be fine, well he isnt fine no matter how intelligent he is! Thats the inbalance within him, his intelligence is way high but emotions/behaviour is well low.

I can really relate to this, my daughter is very bright when it comes to computer skills but still has no sense of danger, needs constant supervision when shes inside the house or outside. Had a bad morning, she decided to smear all over herself and her bed, she normally only does this after Ive put her in her room in the evening and has only ever done it in the morning a handfull of times in the 5 years or so she has been doing this, I really hope this dosnrt become routine. Other people carnt understand how she can be so bright in some ways but she still dosent understand that she shouldnt smear, Ive tried all kinds of ways to stop her but nothing seems to work, sorry Ive gone off topic abit Im not feeling so wonderfull this morning. xxx

Charlotte hasn't been classed as such, but she too has no sense of danger and is extremely forward with her vocabulary. (Despite 3 speech therapists coming to see her!) She also understands the meanings of the words as opposed to just saying them 'parrot fashion'.

She also is unable to ride a bike. She had one, with training wheels, but she managed to fall off it and has NEVER ridden it again. That oh so fragile confidence was dented and that was that! Not too bothered actually, as I can only just about keep up with her on foot when she needs to run away.....I'd have no chance on a bike!

PostSubject: My son, Jack, 18, has been classified as gifted   1/5/2007, 1:11 pm

He got a perfect score on his Math SAT's (Scholastic Aptitude Test) He is also an Internationally ranked ChessMaster. But he still has problems with social interactions, and is a very trusting soul who doesn't think anyone will mislead him. He just doesn't understand the concept of people purposefully trying to hurt him, and that's what I'm always worried about.
