Do you have all these questions in your head as a parent? Are you wondering if your child is gifted?
At first, I was happy and proud that he has been achieving his milestones quite fast. Then, those feelings turned into fear because I didn’t know how to handle his fast development. I also didn’t understand what giftedness really meant and how it would impact his life and our family life.
As my eldest child grew older, I became grateful that I discovered what the word gifted means.
The word gifted gave me a sense of relief somehow. It was a relief to me to know that the reason for my eldest son’s behaviors was not because he’s being disobedient or that I’m failing miserably as a parent. It was simply because he is gifted.
I have learned from the literature that I have read and from my own experiences with my son after reading A LOT of material on the subject that gifted kids behave differently from most children. That’s because their brains were wired differently.
The topics that I will cover are the following:
- Are all children gifted? What does it mean to be gifted?
- What are the signs of giftedness or twice exceptionality, especially in young children?
- What are the advantages of finding out if your child is gifted or not?
- What are the advantages of hands-on parenting to the gifted or twice exceptional child?
- What should you do when you see signs of giftedness in your child?
- What are the advantages of homeschooling gifted or twice exceptional kids?
- How do you homeschool a gifted child?
Aside from learning more about giftedness and twice exceptionality, parents will also have the opportunity to meet other parents of gifted and twice exceptional children and thus find a support group who will understand the same challenges and joys that they experience.
