Parent Mini-Conference with Jim Delisle, Ph.D.
Join our visiting keynote speaker for a special morning workshop geared exclusively toward parents. Stay for lunch and Jim's afternoon keynote presenation if you like!
Parenting Precocious Kids: Understanding the ups and downs of growing up gifted. Parents of gifted children and teens have many questions about how best to meet their intellectual and emotional needs. They want to know what giftedness is and the label’s impact on other family members. They want to know how to advocate for their gifted child in a school setting mired in “bringing up the bottom” rather than “raising the bar” at the top. They want to know how to set expectations that are appropriate and attainable. And they want to know how to juggle the wide range of emotional intensities that often “comes with the territory” in raising gifted kids. (Best audiences: parents of gifted kids of all ages).
Parent mini-conference includes lunch and you are welcome to stay for the keynote presentation.
