Question for you: Too much emphasis on prodigies and phenoms?

So Kelly Ripa made a great point today: We celebrate child phenoms and prodigies and spotlight them (and there is nothing wrong with recognizing their early development). However, what about those kids who are, as Michael Strayhan said, are “late bloomers”? (which I interpreted to mean just normal in development.)

Do we put so much emphasis on “so much so soon” that we neglect the beauty of time, development, and maturity? Please let me know what you think!
