My kid’s passion is forcing me to question the gospel of “balance”

I grew up in a socity that being balanced is stressed from pre-K education. But I have never seen, in my 36+ years on this planet, one single great people who is balanced. Almost all who I considered as genius are the total opposite of it.

I had to wonder the value of being balanced.

The bottom line, in my view, is to let the kid be the person he/she is. It is ok to raise a child that is different than you.

Mimi is truly amazing and gifted. Maybe one thing to watch for is to make sure she does all these not just to get other’s compliment, which I do not believe is the case.

Really liked your writing and thanks for sharing.
