Too Many Interests, Part One

When a gifted child is good at many things, he or she may have trouble deciding what to focus on. This is especially true in early childhood.

Abilities develop slowly under these circumstances because it isn’t humanly possible to pursue eight or ten activities and do them all well.

Parents and teachers worry about these children: how will they ever be able to settle on a career? How can they choose among all their areas of talent so at least a few can be developed?
