  Phenomenology Online: The Child Prodigy
The princess is insensitive to the child as one with needs, and as a spokesman for the collective mind she suggests that the child prodigy is enjoyed for the freedom which he provides to the audience.
To treat the prodigy as a phenomenon is to define the child by his possession of some remarkable talent, power or ability; and given this perception of the child, his responsibility is to always be "on." The child must be continually oriented to maintaining the appearance of himself as one with a remarkable talent.
Insofar as the prodigy achieves an integrated grasp of her self, she achieves a sense of how prodigality itself is oriented to and used by the community to enact its representations of the particular, exceptional and phenomenal.

 Prodigy: Excerpts from The NPR Classical Music Companion
A prodigy is a person whose talents or achievements — in music or in any other area — are so extraordinary as to seem miraculous.
Musical families, a musical environment, early and excellent training, hours of practice — all certainly contribute, but a child of six or seven or even ten years of age has simply not lived long enough for prodigious achievement to be the result of hard work and positive influences.
The rarity of child prodigy composers should probably not be surprising, since the process of creation is even more mysterious than that of interpretation and performance, or of physical accomplishment, precocious or otherwise.

 School Voucher Case Being Argued for Child Prodigy Before California Court of Appeal Today - Christian Newswire
The California Department of Education is opposing a 14-year-old prodigy's bid to receive government funds so he can continue his schooling at a state university -- the only suitable education for the student's highly specialized needs, his mother argues.
The Sacramento trial court that first heard the case indicated in its now appealed ruling that the plaintiffs would just have to face the potential that the child prodigy would have to drop out of UCLA and see what happens because he does not have "special needs" under the law.
Ackerman asserts that at "a bare minimum, the CDE ought to be required to fund Levi's education to the same monetary level as provided on a per-student basis for every other child in the public schools, which happens to be between six and seven thousand dollars a head.

"I'm risking a visit from the food police," she intoned in that oft-imitated Julia Child way, while creating a salmon dish that was essentially a mousse of cream with a little fish in it and Escoffier's original pound-o'-butter hollandaise.

She paints more than any child i know, and she obviously thinks in a very different way, so just because she's not jumping around everywhere and getting all excited when she's painting doesnt prove to me that she's not a prodigy.
Whilst it could be argued that she was unable to work at the best of her artistic abilities due to the camera in place- let's remind ourselves that it was hidden which means that in theory she shouldn't have been aware she was being watched.
