Some Emotional Aspects of Being Gifted.
Freeman, Joan
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v17 n2 p180-97 Win 1994
This study comparing 70 gifted children (ages 5-14) with 2 control groups revealed that emotional problems were not the result of gifted ability per se but of other disturbing matters such as others' expectations or family conflict. Academic underachievement was related to self-concept; gifted children's greater sensitivity was usually successfully coped with. (Author/JDD)
