I saw an interesting facebook post from an acquaintance this week. 

She had her preschool age son tested for the gifted program and he qualified. She posted his IQ score on her facebook page. 

I found that to be pretty tacky. 

First of all, his IQ isn't as high as she thinks it is. LOL And it just seemed like kind of childish bragging. 

Would you ever post your child's IQ on a public forum like that?

I wouldn't post it anywhere, just say he's gifted.

I wouldn't post scores, but I would probably share how happy and proud I was on my son for getting into the gifted program.

I bragg on my kids all the time. I am such a proud momma. My son is in an advanced placement program but its not based in iq scores so I have no clue what they are for either child.

No way would I do that. I probably wouldn't even tell my child what her IQ is.

I probably wouldn't post scores. I might give specifics if someone asked though. That said, the only child I intend to have tested is our developmentally delayed daughter. She wasn't expected to walk or talk and was assumed to have severe cognitive delays. She's gotten past all of it. Now her therapists believe that she is likely highly intelligent. She will need to be tested next year for potential placement into a private school. We've had a hard time with negative comments from family and friends, so it could be tempting...

When they were doing all the testing on my dd to see if she had a learning disorder etc they said they were not allowed to do an IQ test on her based on her race I thought that was strange because the psychologist that diagnosed her with ADHD did one on her as part of that testing.

There are far more worse things people can do than to post their child's IQ score on FB.
