Some gifted and 2e children are not liked by their peers because they are bossy or domineering. They don't intentionally irritate their peers - they are simply strong-willed and have lots of enthusiasm and energy for their new ideas or new game. It is possible to take this passion and help you child to develop leadership skills.
Matthews (2004) defined common themes that characterize youth leadership:
(a) its social nature - expressed through relationships and exertion of interpersonal influence;
(b) it's developmental aspects - appear more central to young leaders than among adults and involve
building general and task-specific skills;
(c) its particular context - including organizational setting, surrounding individuals, and other external structural features that influence the ways individuals express their leadership abilities (p. 79).
