Do you like peeking into the lives of other families? I do! I love reading stories about how other parents handle parenting and education. I started wondering about the different stories behind parenting a gifted child.
Parenting a Gifted Child
I asked a group of parents with gifted children if they would be interested in sharing a bit of their personal story with my readers as part of a series. Several responded and I think you are going to enjoy reading what they have to say.
I presented them with a list of questions that they could choose to answer. It’s amazing how different each person’s experience can be while also sharing striking similarities.

I’m going to tell my story first and then continue to add the other stories. I hope you find them encouraging!
