Raising a gifted child is both a joy and a challenge, yet parents of gifted children have few resources for reliable parenting information. The four authors, who have decades of professional experience with gifted children and their families, provide practical guidance in areas such as: characteristics of gifted children, peer relations, sibling issues, motivation and underachievement, discipline issues, intensity and stress, depression and unhappiness, educational planning, parenting concerns, finding professional help, and much more.

I have read through this book many times as it is the text for SENG parent support groups. It gives great insight into gifted individuals and the challenges they may face. I highly recommend reading this as a foundation to understanding, advocating, and parenting gifted children. Read full review
