The Growing Pains Of A Teenage Genius

What do you do when you have a gifted child? Your child’s academic ability has overtaken yours. You are dealing with a kid genius.

For Cameron Thompson, this is what life means. He is a 13-year old teenage boy. And in most cases, he looks like a normal teenage boy. He loves computer games, he has a newfound interest in girls, and he does normal things.

But he is also a mathematics genius. At the age of 13, he already started studying at the Open University, getting a degree in applied mathematics.

That ability, and his social awkwardness have singled him out. His parents got the diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome. For those TV series shows, it is something similar to what Sheldon Cooper shows. But he doesn’t have the syndrome, despite rumors.

How can Cameron balance the need to remain the genius with his classic teenage years? This documentary shows his struggles to find balance.
