Children of Brights and Others
Hello, parents/guardians! Please read the following Brights' Net's "rules" for youngsters signing up to be counted in the constituency of Brights.
1) The decision to be a Bright must be the child's. Any youngster who is told he or she must, or should, be a Bright can NOT be a Bright. [The Brights' Net doesn't wish to count children who are not taking the step for themselves.]
2) Children should know they can change their mind at a later time (as can any person).
3) A child must be able to independently sign onto the Brights' Net site, read and understand the definition, conclude they are a Bright, and then locate and complete the sign-up form without assistance. (Parents should feel free to discuss likely implications of "being a Bright" with the child, but the child must be capable of abiding by the guidelines.)
