Smart Kids but Not Outstanding (Underachiever) [/ caption]

According to research, underachiever children in America turn out to number about 10% -40% of the gifted child population. Why child gifted? Because research on underachiever children is usually done to gifted children, whose IQ is above average. Early intervention provides more effective results. Signs of bad habits of the child must be recognized from the beginning. For example he is underachieving, if handled early on will be faster help him. The definition of underachiever is the child's academic achievement is lower than expected based on age, ability and potential. For example a grade 2 child should be multiplication to 10, but the child can not. For example we see our children are smart to play games, able to master the game quickly, but learn to count and write very slow. The characteristics of the underachiever child are: 1. IQ is higher than achievement 2. Inconsistent achievement: sometimes good, sometimes not 3. Not completed Homework 4. Self-esteem 5. Fear of failure (or success) 6. Fear of repetition 7. Do not have initiative 8. Lazy, even depressed One of the main causes of children being underachiever is the way we guide our children both at home and at school. We use the one size fits all method (or in the size of the dress called free size or all size). This means that children are forced to follow the existing system. For example, the teacher says that the curriculum is so the child should follow it that way. Parents also just according to the teacher and say to the child, "What the teacher said is good.You must join the school system!" Child achievement is low, but it never occurred to you that it might be the wrong way, not the child. Then how the solution? Underachiever children need more outpouring of affection. Parents and educators need to accept children as they are. To overcome the one size fits all method we need a very specific program for each child. It is important for us to recognize the uniqueness of the child so that we can create an environment that ensures success for each child.
