and enjoying

The Gifted Child

Slide7 l.jpg






An extraordinary degree of

intellectual curiosity.







Slide23 l.jpg

What can I do

at home

that will help

my child?

Slide24 l.jpg

Play word games and

ask “What if?” questions.

(Great for travel times and at bedtime.)

Slide25 l.jpg

To foster creativity,

ask for more

detail, combinations of ideas,

unusual perspectives, going

beyond first ideas.

Slide26 l.jpg

Provide as much

exposure to museums,

art, concerts, and travel experiences

as is possible for your budget

and time constraints.

Slide27 l.jpg

Ask stimulating and

thought-provoking questions.

You won’t get the same

answers you get when you ask

“What did you do today?

Slide28 l.jpg

Encourage your

child to follow his

passions, even if you don’t

share them.

Slide29 l.jpg

Make sure your child

has free time to daydream,


and create what she wants.

Personal Talent: an exceptional ability to select

and attain difficult goals that fit one’s interests,

abilities, values, and contexts.

Encourage these dispositions:





Slide44 l.jpg

There is a fine line between “helping” and “doing”.

When you do or redo a task, assignment, or

school project for your child,

what she hears is something you wouldn’t dare

dream or say,

“You are incompetent.”

"The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: 

A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. 

To him... 

a touch is a blow, 

a sound is a noise, 

a misfortune is a tragedy, 

a joy is an ecstasy, 

a friend is a lover, 

a lover is a god, 

and failure is death. 

Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create - - - so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inwardurgency he is not really alive unless he is creating." 

-Pearl Buck-
