Does your kid love metal? Excellent! Those scary lyrics and aggressive thrash are a way to purge negativity and can be very cathartic!

According to a new study of more than 1,000 of the brightest five percent of young people, intelligent kids use heavy metal music to deal with some of the stress and pressure of being gifted. There is a sense of community among metal fans who feel socially alienated, it's a place that they fit in.

If you were a metal fan in the 80's chances are that you grew up to be well adjusted, despite our parents' and teachers' fear that we were at risk for "poor developmental outcome"! Research done by Taylor & Francis Online, found that the metal fans that took part in the study "were significantly happier in their youth, and were better adjusted currently" compared to peers who listened to other types of music.

These kids are on track for bright futures!
