This brochure, written in Spanish, for Spanish-speaking parents of gifted adolescents discusses strategies to use to support the interests of their children and how to recognize and extend their children's talents. Parents are urged to: (1) increase their knowledge about the child's areas of interest; (2) discuss the child's present and future degree of involvement; (3) encourage the child to develop new interests by participating in a variety of activities; (4) teach the child to explore ideas early and throughout life; (5) encourage the child to experience the value and love of learning; and (6) understand what can be done to help their child. Questions are provided that parents may want to discuss with their son or daughter for developing a particular talent and strategies are included for helping children with multiple talents. (CR)
