How do I keep my gifted child interested in school?

If you have a gifted child and they're in school and they're bored, they can sometimes begin to display behaviors that seem very similar to a child who has a disorder. Sometimes it’s only because they're just bored with school and they've gotten through with their work, which may be the reason they begin to display different behaviors. If that's going on, talk to the teachers about challenging your child. Maybe they need to step up what they're asking that child to do. Maybe the child can be a helper to someone else or a study buddy to someone else in the classroom who might be struggling. Being able to give back is always a good idea. If your child gets done with all their homework and needs to be challenged, stepping up to another grade level may be a solution, or giving them the opportunity to give back to another child who might be struggling.
