This 4-Year-Old Kid Can Identify Every Single Country In The World
Have you ever thought that children can learn and memorize faster than adults? You're right! It is proven that children learn faster than adults since children's brains are always constantly evolving and willing to learn new things as the child studies and grows. Some parents say their children can learn anything if they want, and in most cases these people are right. This interesting video shows how a child can identify all the countries in the world, for this, his father places a map of the world on a table, and the child must point out all the countries that his father names. How many young children can do this? This child is probably a genius!
There are parents who, when they realize that their children learn faster than normal, wonder if their children are really gifted. Sometimes children do not reach early developmental milestones in time, but then move quickly and begin to stand out in other areas of their lives.
For example, there are children who do not start talking until after two years, but after six months of starting to talk, they already know the alphabet. Or maybe, a child has no interest in reading and when he starts school he is interested in letters and starts reading in a short time with a good level. There are many circumstances in which a father or mother may wonder if their child is gifted or simply learns quickly. But how can you answer this question? Parents should differentiate talent, rapid learning or giftedness.
Children who are gifted tend to learn quickly, so when a child learns fast most of the time, whether gifted or not, he will have talent. Although this is not the case always. It is difficult to tell whether a child is gifted or not just because of developmental milestones.
Children can be gifted without reaching all milestones at the expected age. For example, not all gifted children are the first to learn to speak or read. Some begin to speak quite late but when they do, they are able to make quite complete sentences in their communication. The same goes for reading, they can start reading later than normal but when they do, they progress quickly.
In general, gifted children enjoy playing with older children because they find a better intellectual affinity in them. They usually share similar tastes and motivations or sense of humor. It is also possible that gifted children have more games or toys intended for ages older than their own and children of their age find them too challenging or boring for not understanding how they work.
If you don't know if your child is gifted or if he only learns quickly or has talent, you can go to your child's school and ask the teachers about his vision or if they see signs of giftedness. You can also ask them to take a test of aptitude and knowledge to your child. If you see that the school does not see your child as a gifted child and the specific tests also indicate this, do not feel disappointed, because that child is still your wonderful child and if you think he has talent, you will only have to enhance his interests and motivations so that his intellect does not decay.
How many toddlers do you know who can name any country on a map? Genius!
