Q.

Gifted Children

Hi Prof,

I know all moms think their children are super intelligent. Could one tell at the age of about 15 months - just because she " seems"  far more advanced than her peers the same age?

Thanks for your time!

This is difficult to answer with certainty, but there is no doubt that some very young children already show evidence of being very intelligent.Most mothers have a built-in instinct about this, so I am sure that you are correct about your feelings about your little girl.
