Got this from a group email:
Where Have All the Smart Girls Gone?
Does your daughter…
Demonstrate heightened sensitivity and empathy?
“Dumb herself down” or otherwise act inauthentic to fit in?
Dismiss her success, especially in math and science and amplify her “
mistakes” or “shortcomings”?
Try to cover up when she doesn’t know how to do something for fear of
looking bad?
If any of these sound familiar, the reason may be that your daughter is “

Research shows that as early as preschool girls begin hiding their abilities
, making it difficult for parents to recognize giftedness in their daughters
. Worse, without parental advocacy teachers tend to overlook giftedness in
girls because they are performing at grade level and are generally compliant.
Neither the tiger nor the ostrich has the right parenting approach to
ensuring your daughter’s overall well-being. Simply pushing her or ignoring
danger signals can lead to problems down the line.
Unrecognized gifted girls are a lost resource to themselves, our families
and communities. Join our distinguished panel in exploring the complex topic
of intelligence.
· Early identification of giftedness in girls.
· Why it is important to place them in a learning environment where
they are understood and encouraged to take intellectual risks, before their
abilities go underground.
· Social and emotional aspects of giftedness.
· Common pitfalls and dangers facing gifted girls.
