When a child displays talents far beyond their age, parents can quickly become elated. But these children need so much more than challenging courses and extracurricular activities - gifted children need strong parental guidance to keep them healthy, happy, and well-adjusted. The "Everything Parent's Guide to Raising a Gifted Child" is the comprehensive resource on raising gifted children from birth to adolescence, offering information on: how to determine if a child is gifted; options for school programs and activities; dealing with perfectionism and stress; ensuring proper socialization and friendship; and, coping with jealousy and bullying from other children. The "Everything Parent's Guide to Raising a Gifted Child" is a reassuring guide for parents who want their gifted children to grow, thrive, and develop their talents.
