Most parents think of their children as the greatest thing since sliced bread. Little do they know, most of the OmniNerds are already grown up and their kids are just getting pale in our shadows. Seriously though, contemporary parenting has taken a turn towards gimmicks and tricks hoping to turn their children into the next great prodigy. However, regardless of how special and gifted parents like to think of their kids, they are really just like every other kid. Only 2-5% of children are actually gifted and only 1% of that set are considered highly gifted. Maybe one day, kindergarten teachers will adopt the pessimistic attitude of college professors and tell their young charges to look at the student sitting to their left and to their right before telling them, "the odds are, none of you are special."
