    could u please Tell me what this text mean?

    strictly speaking,however,most of the smart kids in any given home or classroom are not prodigies,no matter how diligent or talented they may be.the standard definition of a prodigy is a child who by age 10 displays a mastery of a field usually undertaken only by adults."I always say to parents,"If you have to ask whether your child is a prodigy,then your child isn't one."

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please look at my corrections to your post above, marked in red. It is important to follow these rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    Which part, specifically, of the text are you having problems with?

    Also, in future, please give your threads more meaningful titles. The title should include some or all of the words you are querying. A good title for this would have been "If you have to ask if your child is a prodigy", or some other excerpt from the text.

    You wrote "u" in your title. That is not an English word. Please use full words at all times. The word is "you".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
