Hi, my name is Molly, and when my oldest son started school, I was shocked when he didn't do well right away. He struggled to pay attention and didn't seem to grasp many of the teacher's lessons. However, we soon realised that he was not lacking understanding. Rather, he was bored because the lessons were too easy for him. Ultimately, we learned that he was gifted. As a result, I always try to keep him challenged and engaged with new ideas. Private lessons are a big part of that. If you want tips and strategies for your own gifted child, take a look at these posts. Thank you!
