Your Child is NOT Gifted!

Guest blogger Mary Poppins: I get it. Your daughter cannot go to school because you don't have time to nurture her at home, so that she interacts appropriately with other children. This does not mean I am going to become her teacher -- I'm already watching your 10-month-old twins. I don't have time nor do I have the desire to work on phonics and mathematics, even if she is "academically ahead of the curve".

Mother and daughter

I may be an SAT prep tutor, but I get paid extra for that. I also am not juggling two 10-month-old twins when I am tutoring. And for your information, as a tutor, I can tell you straight up your kid is not exceptionally talented. In fact, she is just a big pain in the ass.

She does not understand the word no. Being "gifted" should not give her the option of ignoring what I tell her to do. I cannot believe you think it's appropriate to let her continue with what she's doing if she isn't ready to stop. She is not Picasso, so me asking her to come eat lunch with the rest of us is not going to halt her from creating a masterpiece. The fact that you even let her control her own play schedule is so utterly ridiculous I sometimes just become sad at what your life will be like with her in a few years. Let's not even talk about what she is going to contribute to society.

Also, when she tells me that she is a "brat" and the only way I can cure her of this is by letting her watch "Bratz" on TV and chewing gumballs, this is not her being precocious, this is her being conniving. This attitude is probably the reason she was asked to leave school. You are only allowing her to be a menace. While I may think this is funny because I'm the babysitter, you as the parent should be quick to let her know this is NOT okay. But of course you didn't because everything that comes out of her mouth is pure genius in your opinion.

Good luck with that later.

Hello there, - discovered your current internet site due to pure luck whilst searching around the net this afternoon, and pleased that i did! I do like the design and colours, but I need to mention that I’m having problems when it loads. I’m making use of Netscape 7 browser for mac, and the footer would not lineup completely. i’m sure I’ve made use of a similar design on a company’s internet site, but the menu seems okay on mine. I think the mistake is with my browser & just maybe today’s the day to change!
