Bullying & Mental Health – Whose expectations? — Create Space

This is a must read post for parents …

Half the time, due to the riddling of reality, these kids are stuck being “middle class” at best. They have boring lives. Children develop at different times, too. Kids score high on an intelligence test then go back to the mean after a few years. Also, it’s dangerous to the gifted self-esteem when their brains haven’t developed beyond their peers due to age. It takes more time to develop the abstract and moral regions of the brain. It’s how humans develop.

    Definitely agree about bullying being low self-esteem’s companion. So much, and not “just” bullying, stems from personal insecurity. It creates both victims, and their bullies.

  4. These are very useful messages for parents. Everyone would like his child to be beautiful, healthy and wise. Meanwhile, life plans are verified. Maybe the child does not have good results, but it’s important to be a good person.
    Best wishes

  5. A wonderful post it is and yes parents should realize the importance.
    I have worked with many types of students while we were in India.
    The individuality and person space of a child, and the proper environment they get at home is much more important than what we plan as a parent.
