Nurturing Children's Talents: A Guide for Parents

Front Cover
ABC-CLIO, LLC, 2019 - Family & Relationships - 195 pages

Nurturing Children's Talents: A Guide for Parents is a book for all parents. That's because talent is made, not born, and parents are in prime position to help children discover and develop talent, whether the talent domain is archery, baton twirling, chess, or zoology. Moreover, talent development is a continuum along which all children can grow. Carnegie Hall might be the destination for some while community band is for others. Meanwhile, most parents are eager to help their children traverse a talent path but don't know how . . . until now.

Nurturing Children's Talents offers parents insights and step-by-step plans to help children reach their potential. These recommendations stem from author Kenneth A. Kiewra's personal experience raising a chess champion and his extensive research interviewing talented performers--including national, world, and Olympic champions--and their parents, across many domains.
