Parenting: Understanding the ups and downs of growing up gifted
September 12, 2018 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM$10
In partnership with the Gifted Support Center, please join us for an evening with Jim Delisle, PhD
Parents of gifted children and teens have many questions about how best to meet their intellectual and emotional needs. They want to know what giftedness is and the label’s impact on other family members. They want to know how to advocate for their gifted child in a school setting mired in “bringing up the bottom” rather than “raising the bar” at the top. They want to know how to set expectations that are appropriate and attainable. And they want to know how to juggle the wide range of emotional intensities that often “comes with the territory” in raising gifted kids. (Best audiences: parents of gifted kids of all ages)
