PLUS of SWMI Presents:
IF I ONLY KNEW THEN:
PARENTING THE GIFTED CHILD
Both at home and at school, parents of gifted children want to do what’s best,
but risk being labeled a helicopter or bulldozer parent.
How can parenting and advocacy work hand-in-hand to improve the life of the gifted child? When do you go too far and risk alienating both child and teacher?
Learn techniques and strategies to improve parenting, mend relationships, and aid advocacy based on research and experience working with gifted children and families.
· Facts and tips will be interwoven with personal accounts to
demonstrate effective approaches to improve relationships with
children and school districts.
· Real-life stories will be included that show the differences between
parenting a typical student and a gifted student.
· Encourage your child to take risks, take ownership of his/her own learning, and empathize with others.
Presented by Dr. Kelly Schultz and Nan Janecke of the
Academically Talented Youth Program at Western Michigan University.
Discover what works, what to avoid, and how to advocate and
parent without becoming a cliché!
This FREE presentation is open to the public.
