As parents, we all want our children to succeed. We want our children to be the best they can be, do well in school, relationships and work.
We also wonder if we are doing ‘it right’.
If our child shows a keen interest in something, we sign them up for lessons. If they demonstrate talent in a particular sport, we get involved. If they have superior knowledge, we get the tested for the gifted program. Right?
Testing is a tricky business. While we support testing, the interpretation of the results and what to do with the information is the critical piece.
Our thoughts? “Genius is what one accomplishes in life, not the score one makes on a test of mental ability.”
