If you have been told that your child is gifted and you want to know what the gist of it is and want to start with reading one book before investing in every book out there, this is the book for you. I had a long list of books to order but decided to try just one first and it happened to be this one and I am so glad that it was. It gives a great general view of what to expect, what to do, and what to feel. It mentioned something that I felt when my daughters teacher told me that she "may grow up to discover the cure for cancer", and that is the guilt! Instead of feeling only proud, which I do, I felt as tho maybe the teacher thought I wasn't a good enough parent for such a smart child and that having such an ignorant parent could ruin her intellect! I felt a bit ashamed and thanks to this book I no longer do. I don't like and don't read self-help books and did not expect to read this book cover to cover, if at all, but it turned out to be a great asset and comfort to me.

It's amazing to find a book that makes you question - "Has this person met my child?"

It was uncanny how right on this book was about many of the issues I was having with my son. He'd been struggling to fit in his Kindergarten AND First Grade class - to the point of stating that he hated school and that the teacher picked on him and didn't like him and frankly I was tired of sitting through parent/teacher conferences where the teachers would tell me that he tests very well, but refused to pay attention in class or follow directions the "first time", because he's often staring off into space or doesn't want to complete an assignment.

This book opened my eyes to the educational differences as well as all the non-educational aspects fo gifted kids, such as intense emotion, frustration with siblings and other children and his preference to spend time with adults versus kids his own age or younger.

I have recommended this particular book along others I bought at the same time to many people who seem to be suffering unnecessarily like we were and I hope that this review has helped you to decide if this book is right for you.

Good luck!

Great book! Many issues have been cleared up. Cut my tags they scratch, frustrated when he can not draw like a professional, the more complicated the easier it is, board in class or not wanting to go to school because he is not learning anything new... I now understand my child's needs, know how he feels, and this book has given me a wealth of information as to how to do something about the situation. It's like the book was written for me and my child personally, but the wonderful thing is it was not. It is great to know that their are thousands of gifted children and here is the book parents need in order to help these children utilize their full potential. Thank you for writing this wonderful book. Vickie Gay

This book has a list of resources and contacts in addition to bringing a humorous view of guiding a child through awkward moments, as well as surviving those awkward moment yourself . . .

We were asked to buy and read 3 books based on our son testing off the charts gifted (which is no gift) and this book is a case study in "Mom and apple pie statements" about everyone's child being special, gifted, and you should be able to look at any child and see their gifts. Granted, all kids are great. Not all kids are trying to teach better speech etiquette while the teacher is talking or sits bored and says he's guaging when the other kids will be done so they can all finish at the same time. If you need more than a hug and confirmation that your kid is special (ie, you want to know how to approach your 8 year old about fitting in and just doing it right, right now, so they do not distract class and can actually progress). "Gifted" is a loaded term, because we associate it with genius and successful. Many gifted children suffer and actually under achieve. This is not the book to help you deal with that or avoid it.
Lots of usefull Info a must have for parents on gifted children, i think teachers and school administrators should have it too.
