it was amazing

I am in love with this book. It is such an amazing feeling to find a resource like this and feel like someone "gets it". We struggle with these issues with Liam so much. It's gotten to the point where I've found myself wishing that he wasn't so smart sometimes because of the emotional struggles that he has. He doesn't want to try anything new if there isn't a guarantee that he can do it perfectly the first time and misses out on so much. I text Chris earlier to tell him I started reading this and was crying tears of relief that someone understands. Raising a gifted child is not a breeze just because they are smarter than their peers. It has it's own unique struggles that are rarely talked about. So glad to have found this book!
