Toddler born with a six pack and super strength

#1 Postby Baby Hercules » Sun Apr 15, 2012 12:51 am

The real deal, Liam Hoekstra, was literally born an athlete. With 40% more muscle mass than children his age and an inability to store body fat, he actually has a six pack at age three. Not only that, his coordination, speed, and skill level are all highly advanced. He sat up, walked, ran, and climbed light years ahead of his developmental peers. In spite of his super strength, though, he's a sweetie with a very caring and protective nature towards other kids, especially those smaller than him. He, himself, is expected to only top out around five feet, six inches.

Liam has to eat much more than other toddlers ("toddler" just doesn't seem to fit this guy at all) and needs almost constant physical activity to use up his nearly inexhaustible energy. Medical science is studying him to learn what anomalies his unique body harbors. Trainers tested him against another kid his age to see just how strong he really is--wait until you see the results! In the meantime, his parents are getting a workout of their own just wearing him out. Luckily, they are the type of folks who want Liam to be a kid and play rather than be trained and pushed as a prodigy.

I know. My knee jerk reaction to his situation was "Wow, I'm jealous as hell!" but then it sank in just how public his life is gonna be. To be studied and watched is a weird thing, especially in one's developmental stages when you're trying to figure out who you are and how you fit in the world. He's gonna bear out a lot of conflicting messages from many different groups before he's twenty-one. I hope, for his sake, that his parents remain strong and balanced and take a step back from his life to let him be who he needs to be. And I wish for him loving, authentic friends.

To be a child prodigy of any kind is a strange road. If you're a little bit better than your peers, you're still one of the group. If you're a lot better, they tend to either suck up to you or try to make you their leader. If you are light years ahead of them, you're labeled a freak and shunned, usually out of fear. You've got two choices at that point: either go ahead and shine or suppress who you are in order to fit in. If you shine, you discover in the end that the only ones really clapping for you were the adults, who had their own ego motivations for getting behind you, wanting little pieces of your fame to bolster their self-esteem. If you go the suppression route, you regret every second of it and the social acceptance you mortgaged your skills for usually isn't that great. But it's often a survival mechanism that buys you some time until you've got the space and freedom to exist fully. If it sounds like I know what I'm talking about, you're a good reader.

Plus, the condition is technically a genetic defect, and there are usually many pitfalls with many cell-growth defects (cancer). I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be worth the risk to have a condition like that....
