Seems like there are a lot of new posters, introductions?.....

-what does your poster name mean?

-what is your favorite room in your house?

-what is your favorite sandwich?

Is there a pretend gifted and talented program?

Wow gifted before 8? Must be those private schools you use as most schools don't test that early.

 

You know how early *most* schools test?

One of mine was in the gifted program for a couple of years. Then they had some budget cuts and he was thrown out when he was in the third grade. An 8 year old ex-genius. Probably everything that's wrong with him today stems from that early trauma.

Does having kids in the gifted program mean that they are genius? I have two then!

Actually, my nephew is a genius. He's a kid to me, but really he's an adult now. Started grad school last year....graduated with his bachelors in physics from some prestigious school on the east cost.

Here we go again with the genius kids. I feel like I never left here. My kid is in a real gifted and talented program. So what does that mean in the realm of things since it seems everyone has a genius kid?

 

Who mentioned a genius kid????

"Here we go again with the genius kids. "

Tinder had a genius kid. Not gifted, genius, she told us so herself.

Peachy, mine was like that too and then suddenly burst forth all over the place, in a good way.
