Between the Lines: Transforming "Parenting the Gifted" into "Gifted Parenting"
Understanding Our Gifted, v18 n1 p2-5 Fall 2005
Parenting a gifted child may not be what Mom and Dad expected when they read parenting books and first saw that innocent infant face. A gifted child is a joy and a challenge--rarely predictable, sometimes frustrating and annoying, but never boring. This article discusses the characteristics and vulnerabilities of the gifted. The author offers some tips to transform "parenting the gifted" into "gifted parenting," a fulfilling and comfortable experience from infancy to maturity.
