    I spent a summer as an auto detailer...cleaning out vehicles....I got a lot of minivans and in that time I have developed a severe hatred of both children and soccer moms haha

    bah children are horrible... there is nothing more evil and self centered as a child, if they did not look cute to women, they would have been whiped up in a week(and so do human kind, in the long run)...

    i heard that all parasite insects learn their job by watching children do their work...

    I hope they're that good just because they're child prodigies. "Why would someone want to turn their child into an outboard motorboat?" (Breakfast of Champions)

    I'd be more impressed if they tore their wind up toy apart and played with the spring. I'd be even more impressed if they managed to put it back together afterward.

    I agree, these brats should be spanked.

    This is for Cyrus. Have faith.

    My daughter is only five, and she can finish an entire popcicle.
    Simon can pose like a rock band front-man. He's only three.

    Nell can also put a raisin on her tooth to make it look like she has lost a tooth.
    Benny (one and a half) likes to eat sand.

    Hope this helps.

    Ah, there is hope for kids afterall!

    I stopped after looking through the links in the first post. That first little girl playing piano really did seem quite talented. The other kids seemed much more like what you'd expect if you made your kids practice something all day long. They can learn to play a song, but it's all just technical...they get all the right notes and timing, but there's no expression in it...some of them don't even have good form (which is fine, I don't expect it out of kids that age, but I just mean it's not something to give them big heads about with parents calling them prodigies when they seem likely to be quite normal...or at least they might be if their parents let them out to play instead of rehearsing their piano playing for hours every day).

    There's an article in the August 2006 Scientific American that says there really isn't such a thing as a child prodigy, or more accurately anyone can be a child prodigy. It takes about 10 years of heavy labor to master any field, child prodigies have to make the equivalent effort they just start earlier and work harder. It isn't experience per se, but effortful study, continually tackiling challenges beyond one's competence is what matters. And motivation is more important than innate ability.

    This is one thing that really amazes me. How do these autistic and sometimes blind kids do this??

    I do notice that they too, as Moonbear mentioned, play amost in a mechanical way with no real expression. At age 11 I was blowing mostly spit into my slide trombone without getting much sound out.
