    I was just reading through posts on here and was wondering why so many gifted kids seem to have interests in the same areas. My son is obsessed with space and it seems like so many other kids here are too. Same for puzzles, mazes (when he was younger) and building toys.

    Is it just how their brains are wired?

    I don't know. I was wondering this too. DD has become obsessed with space and dinosaurs this year. She wants to now everything about it, and can tell us all kinds of things. She is flying through puzzles and is easily doing 48 piece ones, and about 3 months ago she discovered mazes and is doing ones for first graders. I swear she eats them like they are candy LOL. I am guess it is how their brains are wired and maybe these tings bring some challange to them?

    My son has had all the same interests. We would read to him over and over all the science books on request and he would just listen and understand. Much of it was going over my head so it amazed me.

    He has also like fairy books and barbie movies. He probally wouldn't mention these at school to his buddies. He is a very boyish sporty boy too.
