Gifted children and adults are often misunderstood. Their excitement is viewed as excessive, their high energy as hyperactivity, their persistence as nagging, their imagination as not paying attention, their passion as being disruptive, their strong emotions and sensitivity as immaturity, their creativity and self-directedness as oppositional.

This resource describes these overexcitabilities and strategies for dealing with children and adults who are experiencing them, and provides essential information about Dabrowski s Theory of Positive Disintegration. Learn practical methods for nurturing sensitivity, intensity, perfectionism, and much more.

 

This is an excellent book that will help you find some wonderful books to help guide your child’s reading.

Books give important emotional and intellectual support for gifted children, many of whom face unique issues in their lives due to their special talents and abilities. The author describes how to use books as bibliotherapy to provide support, guidance, and insight.

You’ll discover encouraging, practical tips for living with your gifted child–and handling the endless questions, high energy, and too-smart mouth that often go along with giftedness. You’ll find out how to keep from raising a “nerd,” how to prevent perfectionism, and when to get help. And you’ll learn how to advocate for your child’s education at school
