Emphasizing a child's potential rather than any static or quantified definition of ``gifted'', it asks the question: ``How is your child talented''? This should challenge parents to examine their child and what they really know about his or her strengths, talents, needs and sustained interests, so that they can respond in appropriate and stimulating ways. Helps parents find the child's strengths and potential, shows how to use the home environment for nurturing and stimulation, how to choose and cooperate with teachers, how to select activities or games, how the parents' own behavior influences a child toward fulfilling its potential and how to determine a child's unique learning style.
