Families of Gifted Children and Counseling Program: A Descriptive Study in Morelos, Mexico

For some decades we can find studies where perceptions and family attitudes toward children with giftedness are discussed, leading to the conclusion that children with these characteristics should be perceived and studied as part of an ecosystem that should include both family, and the college and the inner world of the child. Unfortunately in Mexico, studies about families of gifted children are scarce. Hence, the study has two aims: first, to identify the characteristics of 30 Mexican families, with at least one gifted child; second, to propose educational orientation for their families. Two questionnaires were designed. One of them gathers information about: age of parents, parents' education, number of family members and general characteristics of their gifted children. The other questionnaire collects the opinion about what does it mean for parents to have a talented or gifted child. A program is proposed to work with parents around the more relevant issues regarding their child and the family.
