Classes will teach about parenting gifted kids

September 1, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

As parents of gifted kids, we share their struggles as they work through the social and emotional issues that can come with being gifted. These can include feelings of isolation or not fitting in with peers, as well as pressure — from themselves or others — to succeed or be perfect.

A new discussion group in the Metro Atlanta area will give parents a forum to talk about how to support gifted children’s emotional needs. The group is being formed under the auspices of Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted (SENG), an organization founded to help parents, teachers and others to nurture gifted individuals as they find their place in the world.

The group will meet in Roswell every Wednesday evening from Sept. 22 to Nov. 10. The class will include reading and discussion of the book A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children, by James T. Webb, Janet L. Gore, Edward R. Amend and Arlene DeVries.

The cost for the eight-week program is $150 for one person or $175 for two people attending together. For more information, contact one of the SENG-trained class leaders, Kathy Courchene or Muriel Knope.
