Heidi Hankins taught herself to read. Should I be glad or disappointed that my son is not able to do that?
A 4-year old girl from Hampshire in the UK named Heidi Hankins is making global headlines. Heidi Hankins has an IQ of 159. The average adult has an IQ of 100. She got accepted into MENSA, the high IQ society. She is though not the youngest to join MENSA. Oscar Wrigley joined MENSA at the age of 2 and a half back in 2009 with an IQ of 160.
Besides learning reading by herself at the age of two, she also learned how to use the Internet just like that at as a toddler. I already made a victory dance, when my one year old son learned how to switch on the iPhone - you know, push the home button and slide to unlock.
