Let's face it. Parenting is a tough job, but gifted parenting is 24/7 365 days a year for a multitude of reasons. This blog has been created to give support to parents of gifted children who sometimes find themselves overwhelmed by the responsibility.
Chances are that if you are the parent of a gifted child, you're probably quite bright yourself. Sometimes you're aware of this and sometimes this realization thrusts itself upon you. At first, you'll be thrilled when you discover that your child has been 'labeled' gifted. But then, the harsh realities of life will set in. And when you least expect it, you'll become cognizant that your offspring has grown smarter than you. All of your nurturing and advocating will come to fruition and it will be time to let them fly!
Hopefully, you will find some helpful information when you need it, some inspiration when you become overwhelmed, a few laughs, and a shoulder to cry on when it seems like nobody cares. As a former substitute teacher and the mother of two gifted young adults, I bring to the table a unique skill set that has allowed me to sit on both sides of the table.
Your comments and questions will always be appreciated. I will be integrating this blog with a page on Facebook and Twitter.
