An excellent usable resource

This is one of the best books on gifted children I have read. I think it is particularly valuable because it focuses less on schooling concerns and more on dealing with the specific issues these children deal with. There are chapters on stress management, motivation, peers, and feelings, to name a few, and each chapter gives tips on how parents can help kids with these issues. This is a great book, and I find myself referring to it often!

Great Primer

I truly enjoyed this book because of the primer nature of the text. Written to appeal to an intelligent lay person, the book addresses a vast array of parenting issues--not just those specific for gifted children. The soft-cover is a good beginning for your research on the concept of "giftedness" in your child and perhaps even yourself. Well worth it and the price is much better than I paid at a Webb talk. An engaging speaker, the text is conversational and straightforward.

A perfect place to start understanding your gifted child

This book helped me to realize the special needs and problems that gifted children face. From temper tantrums to societal expectations, this book really gave me a better understanding of my daughter's behavior and needs.

Focus on their psychological and emotional uniqueness

As the parent of a gifted child, I found the book's focus on the psychological and emotional uniqueness of gifted children extremely helpful. The book gave me great insight into my daughter's way of thinking and feeling and perceiving the world which in turn led to some changes in my parenting approach that have had enormously gratifying and rewarding results for both of us.

An absolute "must have" book for both parents and educators

Although titled as designed for guidance of parents and educators involved with identified gifted children, this book has many "proven" parenting techniques that work equally well with all children. The information especially designed to help in identifying the uniqueness of gifted and talented children adds to its' value. It usefullness does not limit it to a single age group but can be referred to again and again as the child matures
