Can you imagine how it would feel to be a child prodigy?
Have you ever known one, or maybe know a [grown-up] one now? Did they tell you what it was like for them as a child? Did they seem 'normal' to you as a child, or were they "different"? Did you like that child then?
Our younger daughter has always been treated as anyone else would be. The youngest of three - two girls and a boy - she's in her mid-twenties now and lives abroad, where she's halfway through a four year PhD course in physics.
Another Einstein? Inasmuch as old Albert never thought of himself as 'special'.
We've never lavished attention on her and the three of them are 'thick as thieves', always in touch on the net etc.
Frankly I don't know where she gets it from. Neither of us is gifted, although my Dad could have gone on to better things if he hadn't joined the Green Howards (Alexandra, Princess of Wales Own Yorkshire Regiment) in 1941 - he was down for an engineering apprenticeship on Teesside.
He would have been proud his grand-daughter followed in his footsteps... She wants to go into engineering as well.
Thank you Alan Robert Lancaster. You gave me the full answer, because you speak of personal experience.

How do you feel if you see a parent chastise a naughty child in public.Do you think well done serves the little blighter right. Or are you horrified.
