Our Little Einstein

A mom I met recently mentioned that her almost-four-year-old son is obsessed with the alphabet, so naturally we got to talking, and after hearing me describe Justin she recommended I read a book called The Einstein Syndrome: Bright Kids Who Talk Late. I couldn’t believe how bang-on it was. Everything matched: the late talking, the late potty training, the early reading, the incredible memory, the affinity for music, the computer aptitude, the late social skill development…I could go on. After reading the book I felt better just knowing that there ARE other kids like my son, although I still don’t know how to get him to master the potty. But at least he’s not alone, and that’s a good feeling.
