Gifted boys have it tough. Being smart is still not considered cool for a boy. (Or a girl, for that matter.) But beyond the social stereotyping, far too many gifted boys and their parents face a host of myths about gifted kids and education. Too many teachers, administrators, community and family members still believe that gifted kids will do fine with no help whatsoever.
The truth is that gifted boys, like all kids, need help to reach their full potential.
