    Big difference.


    Indeed. I am, too.

    But you're really asking the same question I am: what does the parent of an HG+ child owe to other HG+ children and to the schools themselves?

    I don't have a good answer to that right now. I only know what I owe to my child. Everything else, I'm still trying to figure out.

    And love you, ya' ol' softie! laugh

    Of course, big scary meanie that I am, all wrapped up in giant philosophical questions about the nature of education and what constitutes duty...

    Perhaps I spent too many years in graduate school and I just need to get a life! wink

    I'm a REALLY fast typist! ROFL!

    Keep in mind that I'm a writer (or want to be) so I compose at the keyboard a lot. I spent <mumble mumble> years in grad school writing English papers, most composed--you guessed it!--at the keyboard the night before they were due.

    I'm FAST!

    I bow to your superior posting speed!!

    I think I sit and think too much before I type. I would do miserably on the timed sections of the WISC-IV. LOL

    LOL, ebeth! Yes, I don't bother wasting time with thinking. I just go straight to the typing. <smirk>

    Actually, the ability to form cogent thoughts and put them into words fast is one of the only things grad school taught me. Oh, and I wouldn't have met my husband without my time there. So it was a win-win for me, really. laugh

    And 'Neato, you make an excellent point! Thank goodness for no lives! grin

    Did I mention I'm also Internet shopping at the same time?

    If I couldn't multitask >and< write fast, I truly would have NO life, as much as I write here! I don't spend nearly as much actual time on this forum as it looks like I do.

    No, really. I don't! I'm sure of it! blush
