Gifted Challenges' Best Parenting Blog Posts

Each year, I have put together a "best of" list, sometimes including my own blog posts, those of others, or favorite articles I have seen over the past year.

This year, I thought I would honor parents and list some of the blog posts I have written specifically related to the challenges, victories and struggles faced by parents of gifted children. As the parent of two gifted children, I have been there! And as a clinical psychologist, I have witnessed the full spectrum of what so many parents experience.

Below is a list of some of the parenting posts. These posts are not about how to parent. Instead, they are focused on the feelings, reactions, and mixed emotions that affect so many parents of gifted children.

  1. It’s no wonder that a child is gifted for their parents and parenting is the happiest part of anyone's life. I have read your 3 articles mentioned here and these are really helpful for the parents. So if anybody like me searching for the parenting tips would certainly be grateful to your humorous writing. As always I want to give my child a better life style as me. But sometimes I feel that I am not able to accomplish this. I am not able to keep proper work life balance. I would be happy enough if you'll help me in this regard.
