My grandson is very smart. He reads grownup books and does math and science on a high school or college level. But his mother, my daughter, just thinks the other kids his age will catch up with him sooner or later.
Queenie, how can I get her to understand that her son needs special attention, just as if he was retarded or had a physical problem?—Worried grandfather
Talk to the teachers and principal of your grandson’s school. They can explain to his mother, your daughter, what his special needs are, and help her see to it that those needs are met. To start with, they may want to place him in advanced classes, if they have not done so already.
