my son is 13(excuse any mistakes as i am typing with a fiberglass splint on my hand)...lol...anywho..he's 13 and his favorite book is "behold a pale horse". He wants to be a theoretical physicist when he grows up and when he talks he says things like african holocaust and european idealism. He needs a "new webster standard dictionary so he can study for his SATs now. he called his teacher a religious farmgirl because she was amish and he felt she was trying to push her views on the class(not to her) but he said it none the less. Can a child be too smart?...sometimes when we talk i have to remember i am talking to a child and not one of the women on DB...he writes songs and stories of someone who has lived a full life. I guess he does pretty well for a kid who was born of a 16 year old but, he makes me wonder sometimes..i am proud of him...but where did he come from?..lol

This gives me hope for the next generation! This whole past week i've been so bitter, seeing all these young, dumb girls who have reproduced and seeing what kinds of comments and questions they all have makes me wonder how their kids will be... It's wonderful to see there are intelligent young people out there. Congrats on your brilliant little guy :)

"Religious farmgirl" -- bah-ha-ha! I like that kid -- he's awesome. I'd say, keep doing what you're doing. Support his dreams, and encourage his imagination -- it'll all serve him well.

i am very proud of him. I used to write stories for him when he was small.. like "Tavier gets ready for bed" and Tavier's first day of school to prepare him for upcoming things in his life and so on and so forth. We were doing homework for his Teen living class where they answer questions about the parents and vice versa so as i was doing my part and listening to him talk, i actually had to look up from the paper to see who i was talking to again. and i literally asked myself "where did he come from". Thank you ladies.



@Carol, your husband is exactly correct, and it would be just another day for him to sit around and think like that, just add the paycheck at the end of the week, lol....

I would encourge him to be an individual that's great. My son was a lot like this and stood out from other teenagers as being excentric and hew was picked on because of this. At about 17 he changed as he found girls! He is now at uni where most of the people there share his views and he fits in just fine.

Tah, I read your post to my husband, because he is a physicist. His response was, "Oh, he's very smart! He's figured out how to get a reasonably good paying job that just requires sitting around thinking up outrageous ideas all day. He will go far."

I wanted to add that this is the best post I've ever seen someone put up about how wonderful their kid is without sounding like you are bragging in any way. Clearly he gets his brains from his mother.

He has big ambitions, as he should, he sounds like an awesome son :-)

Sounds like a great kid. Have him check out the Dr. Quantum cartoons online.
