Butterfly effect-a phenomenon whereby a small change at one place in a complex system can have large consequences elsewhere. Here is an example. My mother as a child was gifted, she graduated from high school at the age of 15 at a time when it was very unusually to do so(especially a black child), they saw her potential at a young age and thought that they would only be doing her an injustice if they didn't challenge her mentally in the classroom so gradually they skipped her 3 grades. She was 11 years old for a couple months as a high schooler. At an IQ of 165, she was regarded as highly intelligent amongst her family members and fellow classmates. The changes happened young in her life, they were gradually and they were small, but these things would have a terrible effect on my mother for the rest of her life. Since everybody around her were so much older than my mother, this greatly hindered my mother's social interraction amongst her peers, she took herself for granted, and so many things I can't begin to name. These things in her youth seemed small, but in the course of her 45 years on this earth these changes proved non beneficial to her. My point is that people should take it slowly and experience all things. Anything that alters this process could be great in a person's life.
