Web Resources for Parents of Gifted

Did you know that being a parent of gifted learners is not easy?

In fact, sometimes it’s incredibly hard. I used to think something was wrong with me because I just couldn’t understand why my child acted so differently from other children his age. I mean, I knew he was smart.

But, it seemed so strange for a 3 year old to write in perfect cursive without being taught to do so. And, what 6 y.o. reads encyclopedias for entertainment? Those things… are just… well, weirdly, yet excitedly, different. Right?

And, the emotional differences were far different, and I simply didn’t understand it. 

I used to feel so very alone. I used to worry that I couldn’t handle, manage, or homeschool my uniquely different little boy. I used to…

Then I discovered that I’m not alone. I discovered that those differences I was seeing were relatively normal among the gifted individuals. 

If you are feeling as if you are alone, wondering what might be wrong with your own child because he’s so different, or she’s so smart but not very adept at social interactions, this post is for you. You see, I learned those things I discovered about gifted children from the following resources, and I found a vast wealth of blogs belonging to parents and individuals who were experiencing the same things that I and my son had experienced.
