Life Planning for Toddlers? The Myth of Gifted Children

What makes gifted children special and unique, setting them apart from their peers?  Jennifer Senior, writing for New York Magazine, has published a fascinating piece on the myth of gifted children.  She asks the question, can the entire future of a child be determined by an exam they take as an infant?  Her conclusions say far more about the controlling nature of some parents than about the gifts of their offspring.  How should Christian parents engage with their children’s futures?  On today’s program, Dr. Mohler discusses the importance of raising your children in the fear and admonition of the Lord, while trusting that God makes each child special and unique.  Rather than doing everything we can to prepare kids for a perfect life, we should encourage our children towards success and godliness, knowing that God works all things together for the good of those who love him
