Justifying the Cheetah

My cheetah, my gifted child, my experience as the parent of an outlier, that is what I am willing to lay on the table, dissect, and explore here. After many years raising an intellectual cheetah (see Tolan’s article “Is It a Cheetah?”) I’ve decided to write of our experiences, in the hopes that others can garner what they need to from the path we have chartered.

In truth the cheetah needs no justification to exist, but it does need to be recognized for what it is- a marvelous, complicated, unique creature that requires special attention to its particular needs.
