Understanding Your Gifted Child
If you are seeking to understand your gifted child and how you play a key role in their educational and emotional development.

This collection of articles from the NAGC brings together a comprehensive guide allowing parents to explore topics of concern or interest regarding their gifted child. The topics are narrowed into categorical headings which make for ease of use when reading the book. 

This isn't a book that you pick up and read front to back. It serves as a reference for topics like, gifted characteristics, diversity (uniqueness of gifted children), educational programs, family life with a gifted individual, social & emotional information, the nature of giftedness and assessment information, information for twice exceptional (2e) children and more.

Parenting Gifted Children
There is so much great information about  successfully supporting your gifted child.  I was surprised to find there were characteristics in my children (and other children that I work with in extracurricular activities) that I did not recognize as traits of giftedness.  This book helped me tune in to each child and their needs.  Thank you.

The authors have done an excellent job in presenting readers with current findings for successfully parenting gifted youth. The empirical research is presented in a format that is user friendly to readers.
Review by: James Cox, Midwest Book Review - April 16, 2011
Parenting Gifted Children is aguide of advice from the National Association for Gifted Children with plenty of advice and tips for parents who find their child has a gift that it is in their hands to facilitate and nourish. With a wide approach to many types of gifted children in many types of schools, the parent will learn that a gifted child may seem burdensome at times, but it is a burden worth taking.
