I like the advice in this article, but remember – all kids are different. – S
Tip 1 – Be Gentle
Be gentle with your gifted child. These children are often more sensitive. They are extra sensitive both physically and emotionally. Because your child can be advanced in some areas beyond their years it’s easy to expect more in areas where they are not advanced. This can lead to conflicts. So be aware of their sensitivities by observing them and learning where you need to be extra gentle.
Tip 2 – Gifted Children Tend to be Perfectionists
Since gifted kids often have the tendency to be perfectionists it’s important to be aware of this in your child. Their desire to do it right can cause them to give up before they start. If they feel they can’t do it perfectly then they don’t want to even try. I have seen this multiple times with my daughter.
It is important to take the time to work with your child and help them understand that messing up or not being perfect is normal, and it’s how we learn. You can explain that failure is failing to learn from our mistakes. You can share stories of people like Edison had to try multiple different ideas before he got the light bulb to work.
Tip 3 – Realize it’s Hard For Gifted Children to Admit Wrong
Another trait that many gifted kids have is that they find it very difficult to admit they are wrong. Due to their strong perfectionism they expect to be right. And due to their above average intellectual abilities. As the father of a gifted daughter it is not always easy to know how to deal with her giftedness. However there are three tips I’d like to share that have helped me interact with my daughter better.s they usually are right. So when they are wrong it can be devastating and they do not want to admit it.
By being aware of this tendency in your child you can be more gentle in how you deal with their mistakes and wrongs. Just simply point out the error and then let them know that we all make mistakes. Then move on. Even if they do not fully acknowledge the mistake, they know they were wrong.
By not making a big deal out of the situation you will help preserve their sensitive personality while still letting them know that they were wrong. Later when they are not worked up over the error then you might sit and gently discuss with them that being able to admit wrong is a good thing. No one is perfect and being able to admit mistakes is part of life.
These three tips can help you better understand and interact with the gifted children in your life. Being sensitive to the needs of other people is also a good quality to enhance in our own lives.
What happens when you’re the only sane person in a world of crazy people? This is the conundrum gifted children, indigo children, crystal children face.
Gifted with intelligence, wisdom, creativity and power beyond belief but without a proper role model in sight, with no-one to even tell them that they are gifted and not sick or broken. They may be misunderstood by their family, their society, and everyone they know. They are the leaders of the new consciousness, yet they may be treated like fools and slaves until they forget themselves. Are they gifted or are they cursed?
Being more in tune with reality and life itself causes harmony between you and others like you. But it simultaneously means you’re out of sync with crazy people, the maniacs that make up more than 99% of the population.
Indigo children are “gifted” with the inability to be inauthentic, for instance. Honesty is a wonderful, pure, perfect thing – but it won’t get you far in the social game most people play. In school, they tend to be marginalised or bullied.
These gifted children tend to receive a love/hate treatment from society. On the one hand, they are amazing people gifted with lots of positive character traits, including fairness, kindness and oftentimes an outrageous sense of humour. On the other hand, they are revolutionaries and can’t stand to see the darkness that goes on around them. They don’t accept the standard paradigms just because everyone else does. That logic isn’t valid for an indigo child.
Indigo children have a different perspective. Through their gifted eyes they see a world where everyone does things, or fails to do things, because society accepts or rejects them for it. And it is their curse to be gifted with the inability to go along with this.
The bus stops at our gifted children. This pattern goes no further. In a world where the emperor has no clothes, gifted children, indigo children are the first and only ones to point this out.
Their destiny is either to become the greatest leaders this world has ever seen, or to be burnt at the stake.
