My 8 year old son is 'profoundly gifted' and displays ALL that comes with a gifted profile! He is super sensitive and very bossy. Although we have been consistent with him about the rules which need to be followed in being a respectful, inclusive and caring family member, it has not been without a strict consequence guidline.( i.e.time taken away from computer or DSI, immediate removal from situation, and so on). Our second son, 6, is displaying major anxiety and although from birth he never seemed quite right with the world I do feel that growing up constantly being for lack of a better word, bullied ,by his older brother has effected him badley. He himself is a beautiful boy with many streghnths, just not the same as his brothers.They intensely love eachother but also fight A LOT! We also have two other little boys, 2,ans 9 mos. Does anyone out there share this family dynamic?
