Parenting Gifted Children. Oregon Series on Talented and Gifted Education.
Part of a 10 booklet series on talented and gifted education, the booklet discusses the parenting of gifted and talented children. Some myths and realities about giftedness are examined, along with differences and similarities between gifted and other children. The nurturance and broadening of children who are gifted intellectually, in the visual and performing arts, and in physical development are considered. The emotional development of gifted children is defined, and basic stages of growth are outlined, including trust, autonomy, initiative, and testing rules and relationships. Social development is discussed in terms of understanding individual style, peer groups, social growth indicators, and ways to support growth. Moral growth is described in terms of inner controls, values and decisions, and parental guidance and expectations. Techniques and notes of assurance are presented on providing experiences for gifted children which fully develop their intellect, emotions, social sensibility, and morals. Lists of suggested readings and sources of information on talented and gifted children are also given. (DLS)
