Never tell them they are "smart" or "gifted."

Don't Call Kids 'Smart' - The Atlantic

TL;DR When you tell kids that they are intelligent, they have an (unwarranted) sense of self-worth. They fear making mistakes to grow and improve, because they want to keep their worthless title of "intelligent."

Unfortunately, I used to be a victim of this practice. Reality eventually pried this out of my skull, but it was quite painful.
