6 characteristics that gifted children are easily overlooked
What kind of child is smart?
Is the exam scored 100 points?
Parents always use test results as a preliminary criterion for smart and good children.
British scholars have found that this kind of thinking of parents may kill their potential talents.
They suggested that parents should carefully observe their children’s performance in addition to their academic performance, because that may indicate that the child is a “genius” in some aspects.
Experts from the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom have compiled a list of talented children’s characteristics for parents who hope to succeed, pointing out that the 6 most important characteristics of elementary school students are most easily overlooked by parents.
Feature 1: Leaders who like to give orders.
Children who are good at redistributing items or ordering the whole class in school in an undisturbed manner may have leadership and organizational skills that they may use.
Feature two: young tycoon.
In elementary school, some children soon discovered that if they accumulated ordinary pocket money, they would have a lot of money to spend during the holidays.
These children are likely to become people like Richard Branson, president of British Virgin Atlantic.
Feature three: Ask the roots.
Some children are always curious and sometimes even bother to ask questions.
But if they are cultivated and recognized by their parents, they are likely to become reporters or astronauts.
Feature four: designer.
If this type of child is left alone for a while, he will be able to build a model of the French Eiffel Tower from the building blocks.
Children with this talent are design geniuses.
Feature five: storyteller.
Some children like to tell stories and write stories.
Their imagination is rich.
Parents who discover that their children have a possible personality need to train their children well, because they are likely to be the next JK Rowling (author of the Harry Potter series of magic novels).
Feature six: speaker.
Such children like to talk to others.
They whispered with their classmates even during class.
As parents, please do not stop them.
Their behavior shows that they have special speaking skills, and if they learn correctly, he may become a lawyer or TV anchor.
Experts believe that “examination, winning or losing” is destroying children’s creativity and innovation.
Not all abilities of a child can be found with a pen and paper exam.
They may be good at architecture, have rich imagination, or have leadership skills.
These talents cannot be simply ruled.
