Developing Talent — What Should Society Expect From Brilliance?
from A Meandering Journey
Stacia Taylor, a traveler, a crusader, an advocate, a mom, a wife and a seeker, writes: "I often find myself listening to conversations about talent development for gifted children. Now, I actually believe altruistic talent development is a great thing for kids: take their areas of strength and help them grow. What's not to love, right? As with any altruistic notion, implementation and the need to pay for said altruism often takes away from the vision. What troubles me most is a sense of entitlement society seems to feel toward a child's brilliance and how this entitlement infects the idea of talent development and twists it. I don't mean holding high expectations of meeting your potential."
