Not the first time. If they bring it up in EVERY conversation we have about how their child is just SO smart and he knows ALL his colors and he can count now! and he understands it when you tell him to do this and that and blah blah blah...as you can probably tell I have a coworker who does this. Now, I understand being proud of your kids. Heck, the day after my son's awards ceremony I was glowing because he received awards for his reading and writing and couldn't wait to tell people. However, this coworker talks constantly about her gifted child, especially when I talk about my concerns for my nephew, who isn't speaking too well right now. She'll ask how old he is, then start comparing her brilliant child to him. Not cool.

No. I have a gifted child (feel free to eye roll if you must). We shouldn't have to remain silent about our children and should be able to discuss everything about them if we choose. If my son had Autism or a delay would that make someone roll their eyes? My son has many challenges being gifted. I don't have the support I would if he had learning delays. Seems sad so many are so negative and would roll their eyes at a mother for speaking about her child.
