by Marcia J. McKinley, JD, PhD, MS, NCC, LCPC
In The Boy Who Played with Fusion: Extreme Science, Extreme Parenting, and How to Make a Star, author Tom Clynes describes how meeting Taylor (the 14-year old title kid) made him rethink his relationship with his children; why we are ignoring gifted children in favor of under-achievers; and why it is crucial to give our brightest and best the support they need. This National Geographic article about Clynes and Taylor is a must-read for those who support gifted individuals. I’ll post a book review soon!
