My daughter is very hard on herself and cries or gets angry if she does not do something perfectly, even though her work is at a much higher level than her peers. I try very hard not to put pressure on her but praise her for trying her best and encourage her to do so. Am I contributing to this (I am a Virgo and have perfectionistic tendencies), or are all gifted girls sensitive, or is it just her individual personality? Any info, advice would be appreciated!
