What's Wrong with Being Smart?

My daughter is a smart girl. She's always at the top of her class ever since she started school. We received her school report card last Friday and as usual, she has all A in her subjects. But, she does not want to be called smart. "Why?" I asked. She answered that she does not want to be a 'nerd'. *sigh* Kids...

Gee...I think kids nowadays are under pressure from society to excel, and if they don't do well, they'd be an outcast. On the other hand, if they do well, others would not like them!

Encourage your daughter to continue doing well. Smart in studies does not necessarily mean that she's a nerd. - television influence - sigh :(

She's good! There's nothing wrong about being called a smart kid. As long as she also maintains a certain balance and enjoy just being a 'kid'.
