Denne uken arrangerer Foreldrenettverket Lykkelige Barn sitt årlige sommertreff. For mange av barna er dette en opplevelse: «Oj, er det virkelig noen som ligner på MEG?»

For mange evnerike barn kan det i hverdagen være vanskelig å finne andre barn å speile seg i. Erfaringsmessig er sommerleiren derfor en svært positiv opplevelse for mange.

Hva gjør evnerike barn på leir? Det blir både klatrekurs, datakurs og litt annet smått og godt. Men det blir også rikelig tid til bading (krysser fingrene for sommervarme!) og lek, prat og deling av andre opplevelser.

Vi ønsker lykke til med leiren!

The teachers at his school placed the vines an appropriate distance apart, and he was successfully navigating the terrain. I, however, was moving the vines too far apart. He told me that if I kept moving these lifelines, he would fall into the waters below and be devoured by the crocodiles.

At the time he told me this story, I was pressuring him to put more effort into his schoolwork. He was daydreaming in class and making silly mistakes. He turned in papers with multiple misspellings, although he was a very good speller. He didn’t study for quizzes or even look through his text…
