Why does my gifted child not make straight A's in school?
Being smart (even really, really smart) doesn't always lead to high grades. Some highly gifted children don't do well in school at all. Then again, there are gifted kids who get A's but aren't learning anything because they already know all or most of what's being covered.Back to Top
Should my child skip a grade?
There is a lot of opposition to grade skipping. People believe that children suffer emotionally when they are removed from their age group.
