It’s a Matter of Perspective
“People only see the “gift” facet of “gifted,” ignoring the rest of the pros vs cons list it actually is.” (from Sink-swim-or-fly’s blog)
Not only do many gifted individuals experience asynchronous development, it appears that gifted individuals are often viewed in a skewed manner!
Exploring and discovering who we are positions us to better describe our (and our children’s) experiences. Otherwise, giftedness may merely appear like a matter of perspective. I say, it is time to come out with who we really are!
