Parenting a gifted or twice-exceptional child can be a challenge. I wouldn’t change our journey for the world, but parenting and educating our PG/2E son has been one of our life’s greatest challenges. I have learned so much from him and I always tell folks that he is my wisest teacher.
If you are new to the gifted/2E parenting journey, welcome! Hang on to your hat, because you are in for one wild ride! Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite gifted resources and I hope that they help you on this journey.
