Parent Conversations:  Exploring Best Practices for Gifted Children

We will continue to meet with a few variations in a bi-weekly schedule.  Please note:  we will begin limiting the number of participants who can sign up for these conversations to 10 people starting in April.  Sign up only if you intend to attend & cancel if you are unable to attend.  This new format allows us to have manageable conversations and sufficient time for the quality discussions we all yearn for.   

Parent Conversations welcomes everyone, and aspires to address gifted topics, and provide informative articles and resources.  Please join us to listen, participate, collect resources, share ideas and create a community that supports gifted parenting. Topic suggestions welcome and will change each session.  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, including Carole Jones, CGCC President, and Aileen Kelleher, LCSW, CGCC Professional and Board Member will join the discussions, as they are able.

This week's topic is Gifted Friendship.  This is a challenging subject for parents who often want to support their child by knowing how and when to intervene or stand back and allow.   Here are resources to explore for our conversation:
