Response to I Am Adam Lanza’s Mother:
Thank you for making the difference you will make and thank you to your son for supporting your disclosure as it might help others.
Havingagifted child can have scores of problems andIwonder if he had had better gifted programs earlier the problems may have been dealt with better by specialists in this field.
There are psychiatrists that specialize in gifted adolescents andIhope he will get those services that he probably should have had.
Your approach not to put up with his poor behavior was right on…and your helping him see you will not allow it ….should be beneficial to your family and your son.Ihope he will use this opportunity to becomeaspokesperson for the problems gifted children can become …through researching an understanding how children’s superior intellectual gifts can cause so many problems.
