    I certainly have a problem with study,or believe that kids with wither I.Q.more chance to get in trouble,namely the use of drugs and so forth.I think it all comes down on you discipline the child,educate,provide supervision,unfortunately the fact is no one cares in the family of the kids with wrong indulgence in the social environment.I do not believe that higher I.Q.is responsible for their actions.I can give you the examples of my own kids,who are highly intelligent,they went to reputed universities and never been in trouble,because we the parents supervised them on daily basis,we always checked what they learned in school,and always questioned and explored their social atmosphere. fortunately,parents are too busy with their pursuits to provide guidance and supervision.home environments has to do a lot with their troublesome behavior. in my opinion,i would expect to see these behaviors in a low I.Q.kids,because they are the “followers”

    I feel like there is truth in this article, for there are plenty of kids that are intelligential gifted but suffer from big issues through out there life. For example, I’ve met plenty of people throughout my life that are extremely gifted in different areas, but they suffer from Anxiety Disorders as well as Giving Up When the Going Gets Tough. I honestly think that these are the two largest areas that should be looked at more, as well as putting more time into those who have problems this this area. The largest group of people that I know who not only suffer from these two areas also suffer from boredom, which causes them to get more involved into Drug Usage, Eating Disorders, and/or having problems with Staying Safe Online. I really do enjoy this article, but I would like to know more on what exactly triggers the intelligent kids into pursuing into these area’s; even enough they are already intelligent enough to the effects of pursuing in these issues that they later suffer in life.
