Yeah, it's nuts. Real friends are there for you whether your kid is a genius or a dolt or some random combo of the two.
Maybe the thing is that real friends are rare.

In response to that experience and then the fact that my daughter started reading as a preschooler, I wrote a series of articles with recommended book lists. You can find links to them here: Featured articles – Avant Parenting - and also at the bottom of that page a series of articles on children's literature that I wrote. BTW, I'm not writing for Examiner anymore so I don't make any money off my articles. In the past people would get mad that I'd post links to them, since I got paid by hits, but now I'm saved from that particular complication by the fact that they don't pay me anymore!
ps: And anyone with a gifted reader, whether or not you think your child is academically gifted in other ways, should read http://www.examiner.com/review/book-...ends-are-books
