Having resources at your fingertips is important when raising a gifted child. I can almost guarantee that you will feel lonely and isolated at times – from your adult friends and their (same-age) children. So far, my favorite overall book (listed in the below Amazon carousel) is Dr. James Webb’s 5 star A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children.
The book delivers specific suggestions on dealing with problems ranging from overexcitability, intensity, finding balance, asynchronous development (throwing a tantrum one moment, discussing the virtues of Benjamin Franklin the next), and even depression in gifted kids.
Here are a few of my favorite resources for parenting and education of high achieving kids:
