It's Not Easy Being a Parent of A Gifted Child...

Life as a parent of a gifted child is not fun when you don't have answers. 

The answers can be spread far and wide across many disciplines and can be difficult to find.  Many parents of gifted children feel all alone, different from other parents.

Intensities, sensitivities, emotional overexcitabilities can be overwhelming!

Parents of gifted children struggle with unique challenges that other parents do not have.

There is Hope!

When you understand your child, their strengths and weaknesses through the lens of neuropsychology, the social and emotional characteristics of giftedness, and some of the Top Supportive Parenting Paradigms of today......
Overwhelm turns into Encouragement!

One Parent's Story....

"My "baby" is leaving for college in two weeks. I so wish I had this information 18 years ago. We knew my oldest was gifted but my son was very different. Creative type with intensities that masked giftedness for a while. Good night. Bless you for sharing this information and clearing up misconceptions."
