I have no idea what to do about the kids assessment results, so I have to ask all my expert buddies out on the net.
We expected them both to be ADHD, (insert guilt) and we expected them both to be smart. (Burst with pride), and we knew that Kaz was gifted in math, but not overall, and it was like, no big whoop. You know, like, hey great in one class he gets all A s?
Kind of a counterbalance to his poor marks in writing right?
But Mac and Kaz are both overall gifted, and if we start Mac on ADD meds his tests will go much much higher.
And he will be like Kaz, who it turns out is severely gifted, profoundly so. The psychologist said that kids like this are very rare, and he has only seen these kinds of test scores a few times in his forty years. It's like he could either graduate from Harvard at 14 or become the Unabomber. It all depends on how we as his parents go forward.
I wasn't expecting this, that's for sure.
I'm kind of scared. I'm really shocked.
