A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Teens: Living with Intense and Creative Adolescents
by: Lisa Rivera, M.A.
Gifted teenagers require special understanding in order to thrive. Learn how to understand your adolescent’s intensity and excitability, nurture creativity, promote self-directed learning, and offer support without taking control. This book also stresses the importance of caring for yourself as the parent of an intense and creative teen. After all, you can’t effectively nurture your child if you aren’t willing to nurture yourself, and the best way to show your teenager how to handle the ups and downs in life is to model that behavior yourself. This book helps parents to view the challenging years of middle school and high school not merely as college prep, but as a preparation for life.
This book is an ideal companion book, The Smart Teens' Guide to Living with Intensity, which is written by the same author but for gifted teenagers themselves.
