Nurturing Brilliance: Discovering and Developing Your Child’s Gifts
by: Janine Walker Caffrey, Ed.D.
Gifted children are diamonds in the rough—small gems that, when polished appropriately, can sparkle and shine with luminous splendor. Without proper nurturance, however, their sparks of brilliance may never ignite. The author describes what parents can do to nurture the talents of children who demonstrate evidence of various types of giftedness. She includes concrete recommendations for getting appropriate educational adjustments from your child’s school, as well as how to help your child develop communication and motor skills, deal with friendship and parent-child relationship issues, learn the best way to become financially responsible, and choose the right college. This book is packed with tips for parents, ending with profiles of eminent (and not-so-eminent) adults who display their brilliance in healthy and satisfying ways—and who sometimes change the world in doing so.
