Parents Think Child May Be Most Intelligent Human that Ever Lived
LONDON (DPI) - Paul and Lisa Cooper, parents to 3-year-old Kylie, are
convinced that their daughter may be the most intelligent human yet born.
"You could tell she was thinking things when she was looking at you, even
when only a few months old," said proud father Paul. "And then when she said
her first word a full six weeks earlier than the baby books said she would,
we were astounded and realised that she was exceptionally gifted."
Mother Lisa was constantly surprised by the rate of development of her child
and would usually have something new to report to her husband on his return
from work. "When she began walking a full three weeks earlier than
expected, we were amazed," she said. "She seemed determined to see it through because
she would fall down, then get straight up again." This steely determination
has marked little Kylie's progress throughout her young life. "She could
identify different animals and make the sound they make by the time she was
2 and a half, while most of her peers would just make random mooing noises
regardless of the animal picture before them," said the young mother. "She also has a well-developed appreciation of music, and not just modern
stuff. She'll dance to anything, whether it's Pinky and Perky, the Tweenies
or Vivaldi and Beethoven."
The Coopers, who have been keeping agog friends and family members abreast
of every single development in the life of their child, now contend they
are falling victim to intellectual jealousy. "We don't get invited to
parties so much now, and the flood of phone calls in the weeks after her
birth has dried to a trickle," said Paul. "We have become resigned to the fact that Kylie
may have to face envy and jealousy of her abilities throughout her life, but
we believe she has the gifts to allow her to overcome any adversity."
In a particularly unpleasant development, the website Paul set up to update work colleagues on his daughter's accomplishments has recently been hacked and hyperlinks added taking surfers to a number of
supposedly satirical websites or companies selling tablets that guarantee
