Parenting and Teaching Gifted Children: A Theory of Relativity.
Rimm, Sylvia B.
Gifted Child Today (GCT), v13 n3 p32-36 May-Jun 1990
A theory is presented explaining some gifted students' tendency to underachieve after showing promise in younger years. It is argued that reductions from originally high levels of empowerment and support from parents may cause reduced academic effort and performance. Guidelines for avoiding this pitfall while empowering children are offered. (PB)
