Successful Adults Who Were Once Adolescent Underachievers.
Peterson, Jean Sunde
Gifted Child Quarterly, v45 n4 p236-50 Fall 2001
This retrospective study of 31 professional successful adults who were academic underachievers during adolescence found underachievement associated with: under involved and non-encouraging parents and teachers, negative parental attitudes toward work, family conflict, lack of career direction, and family transitions. Both the adolescents and their parents achieved in nonacademic areas. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
