Independent Learning, Part Four

If you persevere in independent learning, preferring to discover things for yourself—and you nurture this trait in your gifted child—wonderful things can happen. Moments of revelation break over you like the morning sunshine, and even if a long night of confusion preceded it, the dawn of your insight is well worthwhile.

I’ve been a writer all my life, yet have avoided how-to books, seminars, workshops, and other sources of information that might have accelerated my development. Instead, reading has been my primary teacher, and this lifelong habit has been good enough to do the job.
