it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction
Read from April 04, 2012 to January 16, 2014

A very helpful book for parents of elementary-aged gifted children (and above). If you are reading with a particular child in mind, remember that not every child is going to exhibit every trait described, and that means the advice pertaining to that trait may not be applicable. For example, a lot of the advice on perfectionism applied to my daughter but not my son.

I appreciated the real-life example, the suggestions for scaffolding (supporting while developing) better behavior, and the ideas for my own modeling of good behavior. I found something where I thought about my son, some about my daughter, and even some things that helped me better understand my spouse!
