BTW, being well educated does not isolate a child from her peersActually, it does to some degree. Every child is different, and there are many other factors, but peer pressure will force higher performing children to either hide their abilities or accept some level of isolation. This is an especially acute problem in middle school.Of course this doesn't mean parents should discourage their children from educational achievement. Quite the contrary, it makes parental support even more crucial. But it is important to recognize the problem, and provide your child support as she builds her identity.BTW, I agree with everyone else that it is almost impossible to "overdo" involvement in your child's life. It is possible to misdirect your energies, especially in pushing children down paths they don't wish to follow. But the overall failure of parents to be engaged in their children's lives is, IMO, the biggest problem facing our society today.
