Parenting a Precocious Preschooler: Breaking the Silence
Fish, Leigh Ann
Parenting for High Potential, v5 n3 p2-4, 19 Spr 2016
Precocity in the very young should be a valid topic of discussion in parental and educational circles, yet too frequently those conversations are slow to occur or are absent altogether. Many parents and educators remain silent about raising and nurturing precocious preschoolers, and author Leigh Ann Fish believe that the silence is due to a lack of information or awareness about young children's development and perceived attitudes of anti-intellectualism. In this article Fish provides suggestions for parents wondering what to do when they suspect their child is gifted.
