My son age 7 has is gifted both academically and physically. He can plays sports competitively with kids much older than he is and really enjoys it. I am happy that is like to play, but people see that side of his personality and don't provide any stimulation for his academic gifts. In school it has been a continuing problem. Because he gets so much stimulation, praise and encouragement from sports he see intellectual activities as boring. When I can get him to focus he gets it so quickly that he is bored easily by it. So I need some ideas for great books and activities, to do inside that are challenging and fun.
