Nature Merged with Nurture: Unique Nurturing Environments.
Dicicco, Jacqueline
Gifted Child Today Magazine, v19 n6 p44-47 Nov-Dec 1996
This article describes three very different family environments that nurtured highly gifted children: the Brontes, George Washington Carver, and a group of contemporary siblings in Wales. All cases illustrate the importance of early stimulating environments, including the dynamic interaction of children with nurturing adults, development of the child's unique inner qualities, and encouraging an abundance of imagination.
