Is your child gifted?
Have you got a gifted child aged four or under. If so, you might be ideal as a family to appear in a very positive piece for Practical Parenting. I’m looking to chat to a mum whose child has maybe been able to do sums, read or shown any other talent- maybe art or musical ability- from a very early age. Maybe they have not only astounded you, but nursery staff, professionals, etc. too.
Possibly it has even lead to you contacting gifted children organisations or MENSA.
Anyway, if that sounds like you and you feel you can help. Please do contact me and we can take it from there. Let me know a good time to contact you.
All the best
Aren't all our children giften and talented in some way shape or form?
As a teacher i hate that label as it pigeon holes children and makes them feel different! We all have our own special talents that should be celebrated. Each child should be judged on what they can do and made to feel like they have achieved something, be it tying a shoe lace, waving, eating with a fork or speaking a different language.
I agree that all children are gifted in some way my son who is two has an absolutely fantastic memory and vocabulary. when we take him out people always comment. He knew his alphabet by the time he was 1 and by 18 months could name all the makes of car on the road, he knows all his colours, shapes can count very well but is better at recognising numbers such as the numbers above supermarket isles. He is making efforts at reading now although I think he is memorising rather than actually reading but he is getting the idea at 2. He really is a book worm. He has an inflatable globe and can point out england, france, spain,brazil, africa, argentina, poland and many more and if you point to the country he will tell you what it is 9 times out of 10 however again sometimes he resents being asked to do it, he likes to do it spontaniously.
I must say he struggles slightly with motorskills so although he excels in someways he also requires help in others.
