I just got through reading the NY Times interview. Ok so what's the issue? You have 2 very advanced young mind who parents are wealthy enough for them to have the time to find themselves. First of all their readings material is advanced for adults so that a 14 and 16 year old can engage in conversations on this level, probably we should be celebrating that as opposed to calling them weird.
We have a problem in America, anything we don't understand we call weird. Anyone who can't see things like we see it is strange. That's not good.
Our society and civilization have always moved forward by people who thought out the box (and yes most people thought they were crazy). Henry Ford, Einstein, Martin Luther King, The Wright Brother, Steve Jobs, all of these people had forward vision ( and wasn't really accepted by the status quo). So once more I ask "Are these kids, Willow and Jaden really that weird or are we just mad that they we're born into wealth. If that is the case, then maybe we all could use little more weird thinking in our lives.
