Parent Conversations:  Exploring Best Practices for Gifted Children

We are morphing our summer book discussion into gifted topics based on your requests. For each session we will provide links to articles to inspire your questions and ideas for discussion. Everyone is welcome to join us to listen, participate, collect resources, shares idea and fill up on encouraging approaches to the challenges and joys of gifted parenting. Topics suggestions welcome! No time to read the articles? Don't let that stop you from joining the discussion.

This week's topic: Gifted Parenting in the Real World.

Feel free to talk over lunch, and even if you don’t have time to read the articles, join us for what is always an intentional conversation of support that will hearten your parenting efforts. CGCC board members Linda Zanieski & Katherine Peterson will be facilitating the conversation, and welcome absolutely everyone!

Please join us bi-weekly on Zoom on Tuesdays from 12 pm to 1:15 pm. We’ll socialize for 15 minutes, then dive into discussion. Reach out now or anytime with questions and mark your calendar for future dates:  August 16 and 30. Then stay tuned for monthly meet-up lunches and dinners!
