Business as usual for TIME, I'm sure. They're like Reader's Digest trying to appear informed, really.

Right. He apparently squeezed some time in for algebra and geometry. Always good to work your way down, right?

I'm a bit leery, though. It seems odd that genius in one area so easily preludes genius in others.

First and foremost, I would like to congratulate this young genuis on his achievements, as they are truly amazing.

having said that, shame on his parents for not letting this youngster have a proper childhood. What was their rush? My childhood, and I know alot of other people's as well, was some of their most relaxed, enjoyable and no-responsibility times. This kid deserved a proper childhood just like everybody else. He can worry about advanced physics and math later, when he is more mature. I really hope this kid isn't scarred, and won't grow-up with the multitude of mental health problems that surround adults who never experience a pleasant childhood.

I don't think he minds... Not everyone shares the same ideal of a "proper childhood". I don't think he would be doing this if it wasn't enjoyable for him. That is the nature of the genius. It is out of his own personal interest that he has become so infatuated with the area of his study. He still enjoys the simple pleasures of Disney and sci-fi movies, according to the article.

I don't know why people would assume he's being taken away from having a "normal" childhood. It's almost as if you want him to conform. What leads you to conclude that he is not mature? The anecdotal evidence you provided does not really add to your argument.

I am simply assuming that his parenty most likely 'pushed' him down this path (I mean at 8? really don't think the kid can make up his own mind at that age)

So now it's the parents fault for having a smart child? They should burn in hell.

if you actually bothered to read the post, you would see that your comment makes no sense. I was merely stating that the boy's parents shouldn't have pushed him at such a young age.

I didn't know OCN was a parenting expert now? I guess we can add it to the list of stuff only our forum members can do right and everyone else is wrong
