    Parent Conversations:  Exploring Best Practices for Gifted Children

    We are morphing into a weekly parent discussion delving into topics based on your interests, and requests.  We will address a parent chosen topic, and provide informative articles and readings each week.  Please join us to listen, participate, collect resources, share ideas and create a community that supports gifted parenting. Topic suggestions welcome and will change from week to week.  No time to read? Don't let that stop you from joining these inspiring conversations with other gifted parents and Katherine Peterson, CGCC Board Member / Facilitator. Other CGCC Board Members, and Aileen Kelleher, LCSW, CGCC Professional member will join the discussions, as they’re able.

    This week's topic is Executive Functioning and Gifted Children.
