Reporting on Gun Crimes? Leave Autism Out of It

I have an 11-year-old son with autism. His lack of social understanding means he can occasionally be insensitive; he embarrassed me the other day by loudly pointing out the “fat lady” at the supermarket. He’s also the sweetest kid in the world. For no particular reason he will hug me and say, I love you.” Our son is socially naive, a babe in the wood; much more likely to experience hurt than to hurt others.

Then they proceeded to whisper and look back at Ivy in that hateful little girl way that makes me want to stab something ... Read full article

Are Gifted Children More or Less Emotionally Intelligent?

<a href="/blogs/yvettevignando/2010/08/11/are-gifted-children-more-or-less-emotionally-intelligent">Are Gifted Children More or Less Emotionally Intelligent?</a>

Sorry, I can't answer the question posed in the title of this post. I'm fairly sure that the question can't really be answered at all. And the more research I read about this issue, the more convinced I am that it's important not to generalise and stereotype on the topic of giftedness and social skills. I do believe that often giftedness in children brings with it many social and emotional challenges but I do not believe that giftedness equals lower levels of emotional intelligence. Read full article
