I have no where else to post this so forgive me, I'm just a proud father.

I'm a single dad. I have full custody and have had it since she was 3 when her mother decided parties were more fun.

When she was 4 she asked me to do an all nighter. I smiled and figured I could make popcorn and watch Disney until midnight when she would inevitably pass out. Instead, she chose to do a 1st graders workbook. I had the privilege of teaching her the intricacies of simple addition and subtraction. 5+5 and 7-2. Things like that. She ended up doing 20 pages by 1 am

Fast forward to today. She is in 2nd grade and I was called into a meeting with her teacher. He is a good dude. He didn't know what to do because on one hand, she was super wiggly during math time and distracted the other kids. On the other she consistently got 100% on her worksheets. 2nd grade in my area typically teaches long addition and subtraction. 523+432 or 420-179.

When prodded, she told us that she was bored. And that she taught herself "mystery math". We know this as pre algebra. She was so bored in 2nd grade she taught herself questions like 20+a=49, a=?

Her teacher has made worksheets specifically for her and while she completes them in the same amount of time, she gets about an 85% average. She is finally challenged in education.

Sorry is this isnt the place. I'm a proud drunk father. She wants to be an engineer or a geologist

Don't forget to teach her the true history of the US, not some propaganda garbage that they teach these days.

I will and I have. She often asks me for "the real story" when it comes to school history lessons. Like I said the teacher is a good dude so I typically affirm what he says and go into more detail but she really has an amazing thirst for knowledge

Your County seat has a law library. It contains all the records of Congress, from the beginning. The clerk will be very helpful. It's great to see what our founding fathers actually said! It's like reading a foreign language at first, but you get used to it. You might want to get in the habit of reading different things, and taking notes with citing sources.

Also crucial to teach her the history of philosophical ideas. Not to be a philosopher, or write treatises, but to know things like modern SJWism being a politicized/weaponized form of the Frankfurt School of neo-Marxism, and any philosophy that presumes reality is cleaved into two in a creatological sense, is destined logically to split the human race up into master/slave tribalism when acted upon politically. The evolution of 'the big ideas' over time and where popular belief systems really come from and who is really responsible...

Raising em right! I don't think I would even show my kids any Disney film after the late 90's. Some would even argue the 90's Golden ere was trash propaganda and Disney had already lost their way.

Good for you man! Math is supreme knowledge. I could never master or get into it. Barely made it through college algebra with it's bullshit fake numbers. I had to relate it all back to computer parts and equipment for me to remember it all lol.

TheRealBarron_Trump [S] 22 points ago

Frozen 1 and 2 were the correct ways to teach women empowerment in my opinion. They are the only post 90s disney movies that I like.

My kids favorite movie is the 40s Dumbo however. I have no idea why but that's her favorite and she is convinced Dumbo is a girl because of the eyelashes.

AthenaWinslow 3 points ago

I 100% disagree on Frozen; "no right, no wrong, no rules for me, I'm free" - not in my house.

And Dumbo is amazing. Also one of the least racist movies ever made. Think about it - why do the other elephants discriminate against Dumbo? His ears. And what's the difference between Asian and African elephants? The ears. All of the female elephants are Asian elephants. Dumbo is an African Elephant. This is backed up by some context clues too. Dumbo's real name is Jumbo Jr. There was indeed a famous circus elephant around the turn of the century named Jumbo - an African elephant.

And Dumbo doesn't realize his full potential until he meets with the crows, who - aside from Timothy - are the only ones to end up taking him seriously or treating him with compassion.

DividesByZero 1 point ago

To your first paragraph - that's the middle of the movie. She later finds that leaving her responsibilities behind totally screwed over people that were depending on her, and she had to go back and actually fix what she had broken with that way of thinking.

I only know this because that's how I broke it down to my daughter. Elsa in the first movie is actually not a garbage character. She has flaws, develops, learns things, and comes out better, but not perfect.

2
AthenaWinslow 2 points ago

That's a fair analysis, but it's not my only issue with the movie.

I'm a huge Disney fan and I just felt like the movie was a hot mess from start to finish. Like, that first song, that the ice farmers sing was such a freaking masterpeice of tone and then the rest of the movie just... doesn't match up. I dislike the hodge-podge quality of the songs, I cannot STAND the damn snowman and Hans was such a heartbreakingly wasted character.

Like, can you imagine if they'd played him straight? If he was, in his own way, just as overlooked and desperate to be loved as Anna? He meets this chick and, wow, she's cute and "quirky" and they've both been raised by fairytales so this is how love is supposed to work, right? Then Snowmageddon starts and the queen is a witch and cute princess is going to solve the problem, so he's gonna step in and be her rock, cause that's what princes do. Then she shows back up and she has a curse that needs true love's kiss and, oh honey step back, this is the moment he was born for....but it doesn't work. Not because he's Teh Evuls but because love isn't what he thought it was. It fails, not because he's a bad person, but because he did, in fact, just meet this girl and doesn't even know what her favorite animal is. Then he and Kristoff have to go collect Elsa, instead of being a stupid jokey side antagonist, the Duke of Weaselton shows that he's actually got some hidden depths of evil, and the rest of the story proceeds apace.

Instead, we got a mustache-twirling evilbro and a "romantic" lead couple that were too busy trying to out-quirky each other they forgot to have chemistry.

Agreed. That movie is aces. I think it was buried for being TOO based. The mentor for the young kid was a strong male figure that was a little edgy, wasn't exactly a "good guy" so to speak but had a heart of gold and decent values when push came to shove.

chinita_atx 16 points ago

Good job on being a hands-on dad. You have cause to be proud. T_D is open to sharing family values, I would think. It's been like that in r/ when we were there.

Keep challenging her. I have a friend who has smart kids. Always topped their class in grade school. They decided to send them to a special science HS (not here) where other smart kids from all over the country competed to get into. The kids realized there that they're not as smart as they thought they were compared to the best of the best. They got complacent. My point is try to get to her potential, which you may or may not even be aware of. Find the opportunities for her to grow and improve beyond her current environment. She could be the next Einstein. Or even if she isn't, the drive to challenge yourself and learning more will serve her and her community well.

Let her enjoy it though. Don't push her to the point of her not liking it anymore. Watch for burnout. And no matter what, show and tell her you love her unconditionally.

Oh and if she's not into physical activity, prod her on that. Dance or some sport. Mens sana in corpore sano (sound mind in a sound body) and all that.

Cheers!

TheRealBarron_Trump [S] 14 points ago

Get written statements from your family, friends and her family about how you take care of him. Record every single text and call you two make. Even if it makes you look bad. Feign sympathy with her so she can possibly be recorded confessing her addiction or whatever

As a mother this is unfathomable. I can’t imagine how effed in the head you have to be as a mom to abandon your kids.

Bro... Do me and you have the same life?! I'm a single dad with full legal and physical custody of my son. His mom left right before his 2nd birthday for the exact same reason. Parties were more fun. My son is 8 turn 9 next month, but he is also in the 2nd grade. We held him back in kindergarten so I'm gonna guess your daughter is 7. My son didn't see or talk to his mom for almost 7 years. She saw him for the first time on Jan 1 of this year. Ur daughter sounds so smart. My kid is a nerd but isn't smart lol. Tbh I can't even understand my kids math bc they do it completely different than I learned. They don't carry over numbers and what not. Common core math I guess

Hell no. Promised she would facetime him every Friday to start staying in touch. First Friday rolled around but of course she made up an excuse(I mademistake of getting my sons hope's up. I decided I wouldn't tell him anymore unless she she actually called) next Friday rolled around... another excuse. Then etc. Until finally she just doesn't even make up an excuse anymore and now were back to no contact. The door has always been wide open for her to see or talk to him whenever she wants.

Thanks for asking pede

Mr_Mike 5 points ago

Might be best to just cut her out of his life completely and put him in therapy to cope with growing up without a mom. My step brother grew up completely fucked up and is now in and out of jail constantly because my dad convinced his mom to let him hang out with his deadbeat dad. He told me they would go party on the streets, get drunk and do hard drugs when he was 10-12 years old!! Now I know this isn't the same situation but just be careful. Kids should retain their innocence for as long as possible.

1
PezzShivers 1 point ago

I hear you man. I appreciate it. Oh and most definitely my sons mom would let him do drugs with her and she would laugh about it. Thats all she's known. It's what her mom did with her. Damn tbh i haven't even thought about that situation until you just said something. but yes she most def would expose him to that environment. Well I guess its a good thing he's only seen or talked to her 1 time in the last 7 years. I've thought about therapy. I moved back in with my folks once she left so that I would have a little more support with him, so my mom has kinda been his mom in a way. He calls her "Nonni". At first I didnt like it bc I thought it sounded too much like "Mommy" and felt like it would confuse his since his mom wasnt around. Well in reality it helped bc when kids at school would ask him why he didnt have a mom he would just tell them well i have a Nonni. I have a mom but I live with my Nonni.

You can do things to keep your mind off things but during the day there's ALWAYS times when you can't fight your thoughts and have to think about shit. Usually when you finally get by yourself for a few min. Weather thats in the car on the drive home or when ur in the shower by yourself. The thought of ur son has to come in ur head at some point... Well NOPE i realized that not eveyone has a heart

About a year or two ago though I had a random friend on Facebook msg me she said, "Hey I just wanted to let you know that your Baby Momma is addicted to Heroin now and is a Pornstar" she sent me links to prove it. worst news a guy could hear about his childs mom

DaayTerkErJerbs 7 points ago

They have to do with her what they did with me. I was a really smart kid (lord knows what happened as I aged lol) They need to advance her and put her in the back of the room with a math book for the next grade. When she has questions the teacher comes back an helps them work through it while the kids are doing their math. She likely won't require much help. If she remains bored she'll not only not grow she'll fall behind and it will crush her desire to learn which will have repercussions through out her education. In my elementary they had 3 of us working like this for math. They wanted to have me completely jump grades but my mom didn't want me to because my brother was 2 years older and didn't want me advanced as it would make him feel stupid if we ended up in the same grade. So I got bored an stopped trying. Barely graduated even though I probably have an IQ over 135. A kids desire to learn needs to be encouraged no matter the cost.

They very often DO NOT end up just being early, and then level out along witht he crowd. Our son told us that he "saw" math in his head and in the air in front of him. He was 7. It took another year before we realized he was not even joking. He is 26 now and a PHD holder in Experimental Nuclear Physics. He has worked with international teams at the LHC in Europe as a doctoral candidate at the age of 21. Your a great DAD, keep challanging her. let her read absolutely everything.

You should be proud, you have taken your daughters education into your own hands. I have a similar story. When my son was little (this started in preschool) I would take him hunting with me. He was bored sitting in blinds and at night before bed. I started asking him simple addition questions at first. over the next few years it progressed into multiplication and what your daughter calls mystery math. By third grade we got the call from the teacher, it was the same story, high test scores but inattentive in class. She recommended that we see a doctor as she thought he was A.D.D. I said bullshit to that, told her she wasn't teaching him anything and that he was bored, she finally agreed to give him special problems and let him see if he could figure them out. we made it a game and he beat her almost every time. He also wrestled, starting in preschool and was a State placer his senior year. He will graduate this spring with a Mechanical Engineering Degree with a 3.5 GPA in 4 years.

stratocaster_patriot 3 points ago

I'd be proud too. I'd also be pissed that our schools, more and more, cater to the lowest common denominator and still crank out retards. But be proud of yourself too because part of a child's success starts with decent parents who give a shit and work with their kids instead of pawning them off to the schools because "they work so many jobs and are so busy".

LostViking1985 3 points ago

Good on you, you sound like a great father. My advice from personal experience: be VERY careful about putting her in higher grades. It may lead to disaster with her social development. Her former classmates may mock her for being too good, and her new classmates may ignore her for being younger than them. Social wellbeing is very important for smart kids. If you can keep her challenged while allowing her to develop socially with her peers, she'll be much happier.

I was the same way as a kid. They wanted to hold me back! Led me to act out a lot in middle school. Encourage her and find extracurricular activities that excite. It's very difficult to make school worthwhile for the brightest kids...

AslanFan 3 points ago

Congratulations and you SHOULD be a proud papa!

BTW, when they eventually try to tell you to put her in the gifted program and later in AP, be thorough and ask exactly what they do in those programs. Some teachers really challenge the kids, while others just give more worksheets. IMO, AP classes just teach kids the value of single pursuit (grade) and not learning. It's almost like Stepford kids.

As an involved parent, her time is probably better spent in regular classes with you providing her framework for more advanced topics at home.

I was like that in school, especially early grades. Endlessly bored in certain subjects because it took other kids way longer to digest information and I was constantly waiting for them to catch up. Try to get her into the gifted/accelerated program if your school has it, I think it should start as early as 2nd or 3rd grade. It is important to keep her stimulated and challenged especially at a young age

Have you heard of “data science”? Careers that did not exist 10-20 years ago are in very high demand now. Basically every tech company, mid size corporation, or laboratory has a giant database of raw numbers on everything. I’m talking incomprehensible amounts of numbers stored in the cloud somewhere. Data scientists are becoming the driving force in corporate decision making, they analyze these gigantic databases and identify patterns + make all kinds of discoveries. In 15-20 years, I think data scientist will be the most sought after talent in the world.

By the time honors classes were available (10th grade) I had lost interest. This one great teacher doing great things can make all the difference in the world! See about getting additional books, perhaps designed for homeschooling. Ot perhaps an online study course needing no book.

Keep her challenged :)

Good for you man!

Now, this is key, and I thought I knew who you were for a minute there because that’s just like a friend of mine, so this is sincere and from the heart and from experience.

You must MUST get this girl in the presence of a hot, elegant, feminine adult woman and she needs to spend time with her. She naturally will want to continue with the math and mind puzzles and that is great. But she will also shy away from the feminine and that is the tragedy-unless you get her the exposure and female social skills she will need.

She doesn’t have to dress up and wear make up all the time. But she HAS TO KNOW HOW to do it, and be good at it, so she doesn’t wind up a “neuchacho” - a half-gendered person who is only attracted to and by other neuchachos which means weak “men” in man-buns who want to be led by the nose by a manly, bossy woman.

Again, this is not an insult to anyone. Maybe she can work part time at a beauty store and learn from the women there? Or take some kind of modeling classes. Or just make friends with some latin moms who have not lost touch with how to be a powerful but feminine woman.

Be proud and good luck, Fren!

Great work! As a single dad of two amazing daughters, I know how tough it can be and the incredible impact you have on your girl’s life. Sounds like you’re doing well.

Let me offer one little piece of advice if you’ll allow it. Suggest the military. My eldest is very smart, always scored very high. Wasn’t sure what to do when she graduated HS - not very interested in going to an institutional daycare for young adults for four years. Took the ASVAB, smoked it (like I knew she would). She’s now a military linguist with plans to go into an officer program. Spent a year in Monterey, CA learning her language, now in Georgia. She has a sense of purpose, and knows where she wants to go.

It’s true there are issues with the military, just like any large organization. But it changed me thoroughly for the better, and it’s doing the same for my daughter. If you couldn’t tell, I’m very proud. 😃

I told my 5 year old a story about bees collecting pollen. Socialism vs. Capitalism. Which bee model you think she said "thats not fair!" to. The bee who collected the most pollen got the most honey or the bee that had to collect pollen and share honey for other bees. I didnt bait her either, but once the "hurt bees" got better she still had to collect honey for them. Point is, kids are a lot smarter then what we give them credit for. Great to hear this stuff!

Right now is the critical time to chain the abstracts of math to their practical uses. Design and build something that uses a lot of math. Let her see how numbers are moved off the piece of paper and into the real world as tangibles, like measurements off a tape measure, and how math can be applied directly into that.

If you have tools and are capable, a piece of furniture or something is great for this.

You hit the jackpot pede! I hope my kid has that type of desire to use their gifts. I see too many people who just sit back and expect things to be handed to them. And then when they don't get it they blame a "rigged" system. My parents taught me to just do the work and do it good and you'll get what you earned. It's got me far in life and if you teach her that too she'll be CEO of a big tech or engineering company one day (and maybe she can fight censorship!)

One of the truly characteristic (I think) things about this place is the honest, straightforward respectfulness which permeates the content & culture and hence, it's surely reasonable to say, it's people. There are pages and pages of comments on this post, offering shared experiences and good advice in response to a shared personal testimony with hardly any mentions of DJT or his works. A quick search of the page had more hits for 'trump' in usernames than comments! Where else can we find an ostensibly political forum saturated with the best of human nature to the exclusion of the political content to which it is dedicated? Yup, I know and recognize the human goodness of the content is but a manifestation of the essence of Trumpism, but it's still impressive.

griff 2 points ago

You have every reason to be proud! You and her teacher are giving her fantastic support as well. When kids show a talent for certain subjects it should be grown and celebrated. So much of public education is driving toward enforced mediocrity.

I am an engineer now and grew up loving mathematics. I didn't have a good school system, but I had (and still have) great parents. Keep in mind that engineering is essentially applied mathematics, and while I have found engineering to be enjoyable and rewarding, I sometimes consider how things would have been different had I pursued a career in mathematics.

When I approached guidance counselors in high school asking, "I like math, what should I do for a career?" the response was you "you could be a math teacher." Having been a student of a high school that started with 500 freshman but only graduated 150, I had some serious issues with event the concept of being a math teacher. As you can imagine, teaching in this school would not be a good experience. Falling back on my parents, my father's response was, "Engineers have to be good a math, and they are paid well at the shipyard, so engineering sounds like a good career." My father was correct, but at the same time, he came from a poor coal mining family, didn't attend college, and had a limited view of opportunities for mathematics. Nevertheless, he was intelligent, pragmatic, and hard-working, making his way from an apprentice to a the top salary grade of the shipyard in which he worked.

I grew up reading about scientists and great military leaders and it formed much of my drive. I did come across some texts later in life that I think I would have enjoyed as a child. One is Men of Mathematics by E.T. Bell. I am sure you will agree with me that the title means nothing, e.g. it doesn't matter that it only speaks of men, as we all know that women can be just as capable. This is how I raise my daughter, who is already 14. I would say that this recommendation on rddt was downvoted heavily. Nevertheless, there may be some good biographies on Emmy Noether, Grace Hopper, etc. Heck, Hedy Lamarr was a beautiful and accomplished actress helped invent frequency hopping/spread spectrum communications.

One final text, for which she may be too young, is How to Solve It by G. Polya. This is more on the process than the mechanics of mathematics. Too much of education is teaching the mechanical algorithm or process, not the actually process of solving difficult problems.

I wish you and your daughter continued success! Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Speaking as a former "smart kid", you're doing it right, but make sure to keep your daughter challenged and engaged as she develops. It'll get harder as she gets older because she'll probably outpace the capacity of her teachers and the school system. Look into special summer programs, and encourage her extracurricular pursuits.

Socializing may become difficult, so try to find venues where she can meet other smart kids like herself.

Keep in mind she's not "unusual". She's still a normal kid, but her mind is just accelerated, and she'll understand immediately things that others might take a lesson or two to learn.

And one warning. Stuff can go badly for kids like this. It's extremely easy for them to become disenchanted with the school system and the bullshit of every day beaurocracy. They will then withdraw into themselves and their private intellectual pursuits, which is a loss for everyone.

Just be there for her, encourage her, and help her to understand the things that will confuse her.

And most of all, love her and make sure that she not only understands but feels it.

You're both gonna be fine.

Wow. Congrats bro. What more could a father ask for?

I'm hoping I can have some baby pedes of my own soon and have some similar experiences. Chinese virus threw a wrench in our plans big time.

Super happy for you man. Keep up the good work.

All the founding fathers were well versed in scripture... Single dad of a second grader who loves reading the Bible, she has an amazing vocabulary as a result.

Can't hurt 😉

Correction. This is THE PERFECT PLACE to brag on our kids! There are so many proud parents here, myself as well. It's nice to turn the page on politics and viruses and get back to what really makes this the greatest country, with the greatest people on earth. Best of luck to you and your exceptional daughter in these trying times. We will come out of this stronger than ever!

The world needs more good fathers like this. Not the teaching math per se, but this kind of attention and guidance and parenting.

You're right, this isn't the place.

But it is good for a kid to be challenged at school. I think that the lack of challenge is 50% of what is wrong with school.

Don't forget:

On many levels, mathematics itself operates as Whiteness. Who gets credit for doing and developing mathematics, who is capable in mathematics, and who is seen as part of the mathematical community is generally viewed as White. Curricula emphasizing terms like Pythagorean theorem and pi perpetuate a perception that mathematics was largely developed by Greeks and other Europeans.

Read a book called “Surely you must be joking, Mr. Feynman”. It’s a super charming biography about world renowned super genius physicist Richard Feynman. When he was a kid, he was also bored (and therefore disruptive) in school until a sharp teacher gave him a calculus book and said “here read this and be quiet”. This, along with a father who taught him how to think (rather than memorizing words) is credited with instilling his love of knowledge and wonder of physical world. It is impossible to read this book and not laugh and admire this wonderful man. If you are blessed with the promise of raising gifted a child like this, you have a special responsibility. Stop whatever you are doing now and read it.

You had nowhere else to post this? Pretty sure the Left would bump this story to front page news if you gave it to them. We need stories about boys, not girls. We all know girls do well in school. No big mystery.

<shrug> most "smart" kids are just early and end up being normal later in life and not geniuses

try not to get your hopes up too much
