Parenting a young gifted child can be challenging. What seems like blessings in any child can become problematic in the intense and asynchronous gifted child. Without knowledge of social and emotional issues of gifted children, adults can misinterpret common gifted traits and behaviors as flaws or pathology to be diagnosed and "cured." Parenting Young Gifted Children provides readers with practical information about young gifted children (behaviors, traits, and characteristics), along with research backed parenting theories, approaches, and tools. This edition includes a bonus section with information and strategies for emotional intensities. Combining current research with hands-on examples, this book offers readers insight, understanding, clarifications, and strategies for parenting young gifted children.
