Welcome to the 2014 Parenting the Gifted Blog Tour!
Parenting a gifted child can sometimes be as challenging as it is rewarding. That’s why for the third year in row, parents from The Well Trained Mind Message boards have created a blog tour to share wisdom, joy, tribulations and advice.
Starting Sunday, June 22nd the Parenting the Gifted Blog Tour will discuss some of the most pertinent issues facing gifted education today:
On June 22nd Sceleratus Classical Academy will kick off our tour with How a Gifted Childhood Prepared Me for Gifted Parenting.
On June 23d At Home in the North Woods will share Great Expectations, four ideas for dealing with perfectionism.
On June 24th Homeschooling: or Who’s Ever Home will write about Following the Passions of the Gifted Child.
On June 25th Teaching My Baby to Read will feature a guest post From Kindergarten to College, Parenting a Twice Exceptional Child is an Adventure.
On June 26th Homeschooling Hatters will discuss Twice Exceptionality, when just one exception isn’t enough!
On June 27th Teaching My Baby to Read will share Intensity Fades but doesn’t Forget.
A difficult thing to understand about children with high IQs is that just because they are gifted, it doesn’t mean they are easy to teach or parent. In fact, often times the opposite is true.
This blog tour is written by people who understand what you’re going through. We are sending encouragement your way! So the next time you wake up at 3 AM worrying about your child, at least you’ll know that you aren’t alone.
Thanks for being with us on this journey!
P.S. There are still room for more posts, so if you have something on your heart that you would like to share, please email Jenny via Teachingmybabytoread at gmail dot com.
