If you’re a creative person, if you have any kind of anxiety or discomfort, just read it.      fuente
@theashleyray It depends on the school (more intense ones teach high school algebra in 6th grade) but mostly the issue is yes, how gifted kids are treated and pressured by parents and teachers. It genuinely changes mental health. This is a great book to understand it btw:      fuente
All about the fact that stuff happens to us as children, negative things happen. Then, we adapt to those things by taking on certain defensive ways of being. And then, we live the rest of our lives from those defensive modes.      fuente
