What’s Calling My Gifted Child the Loudest? Part One, Becoming Aware of the Problem

In raising two profoundly gifted children, the biggest puzzle I ever faced was in figuring out what they most needed to learn, beyond the basic curriculum. This didn’t even begin as a clear question. Rather, it was first a mysterious problem that manifested itself as inattention.

I’d be trying to give my daughter Annette a cello lesson and could see clearly that her mind was wandering. Since she was interested in cello playing and motivated to learn about it, I knew she wasn’t bored. Her inattention remained a mystery until my son Lewis explained the basic problem to me when he was six.
