A friend of mine has several gifted children. One afternoon her 13-year-old son called her at work and said he was going to a friend’s house for awhile.
His mom reminded him to hide the key for his sister Beth, so she could get into the house when she got home from school.
When Beth arrived home after school, she found a note taped to the front door which read, “Beth, I hid the key to the front door in the BBQ grill.”
This mother found that it is not always “gifted is as gifted does”.
