How Can I Support My Gifted Child?
- Collect resources on your child's topics of interest, such as books, videos, and websites.
- Make time to talk to your child every day and encourage her to active questioning.
- Find peers or groups who share similar interests.
- It can be easy to forget your child is just a child because he may be able to have adult conversations about advanced topics.
- Allow your child the freedoms or responsibilities appropriate for his individual emotional or social development.
- Gifted children are often highly observant and sensitive to social issues and fairness. Model the behavior and respect of others you expect of your child.
- Find opportunities for him to participate in acts of service that can make a difference.
- Provide challenges outside of school.
- Enrichments are incredibly beneficial whether it supplements school content or explores interests or passions. This could be in any area, whether that be through music, sports, or academic camps.
- Encourage your child to take risks.
- Celebrate mistakes as learning opportunities. When you make mistakes, model positive ways to problem-solve and grow.
