comment In what ways can you help a child develop self-control and delayed or deferred gratification?
Ross, my larger point was that her ability to develop delayed gratification aside, her parents setting good examples for her are more likely to keep her from developing debt or dropping out of college. The OP and his partner/significant other being, demonstrating, and rewarding her ability to be patient will, in my humble opinion, give their daughter the skills and values she will need to be successful. Basically, I was trying to tell the OP to have a little faith. :)

comment What are some ways to encourage a gifted toddler's development?
Fair enough, @Martha, but in the poster's defense, he's asking that, assuming the child is, in fact gifted, what can they do to encourage this.

I was a municipal liaison to a B&GC for a summer. It was one of the best experiences of my life.
