Counseling Your Gifted Child. Oregon Series on Talented and Gifted Education.
Intended for parents, the booklet (part of a 10 booklet series on talented and gifted education) discusses how parents can counsel their gifted or talented child. Some tips for effective counseling are presented, focusing on such things as observation, listening, accepting, and making suggestions. The question of when a parent should counsel his or her gifted child is considered. Some helpful attitudes a parent can have toward giftedness are described, touching upon such issues as being different, the responsibility of using one's ability, and having others appreciate one's achievement. A list of sources of information on the talented and gifted is also provided. (DLS)
