Sherwyn Sarabi showed remarkable abilities even as a baby. At the age of three, with an IQ of at least 160, he was the youngest member of Mensa, the international high-IQ society. At four years old he was hailed as a genius and a prodigy. He is now five years old with a reading age of fourteen. He is also musically talented; after only three months of lessons, he performed on his violin and recorder for his school's Easter service.To help other parents understand the emotional and educational needs of their gifted children, his mother, Amanda Sarabi, a former secondary school teacher, shares her experiences, challenges, and choices. She writes that living with Sherwyn was at times puzzling, confusing, and lonely yet also a continual delight, with "every day an adventure."Topics covered in the book include signs of a gifted child, social and emotional traits and needs of gifted children, nurturing the brain from birth to four years old, school versus homeschooling, whether or not to skip a grade, and what it's like to be a parent of a gifted child.
