Parenting Your Gifted Child: a facilitated discussion group dedicated to supporting YOU

Register now

Parents of gifted children frequently feel isolated from support. They experience an unsettling dissonance between the child-rearing practices recommended for average children and the reality of the child in their midst. The very strengths and characteristics of gifted children often result in associated problems, particularly in social and emotional areas. (Gifted Parent Groups: The SENG Model2nd Edition, pg.3)

Our groups provide a safe and supportive environment to freely discuss your child’s development and parenting challenges. You will connect with other parents, increase your awareness of your child’s unique needs, learn strategies for successful parenting, and expand your resources. Your child does not need to have been formally identified as gifted to participate. To ensure everyone benefits, space is limited to 10 participants per group.

Weekly topics include:

  • Characteristics of gifted children

  • Communication

  • Motivation, enthusiasm and underachievement

  • Discipline and self-management

  • Intensity, perfectionism and stress

  • Idealism, unhappiness and depression

  • Acquaintances, friends and peers

  • Siblings and only children

  • Values, traditions and uniqueness

  • Complexities of successful parenting
