SENG (Supporting the Emotional Needs of the Gifted)
Is life more challenging than you think it should be for your bright child or teen? Have you ever asked yourself:
“How can a child with such a quick mind, insight, persistence, and focus in some areas struggle so much in other areas?”
“Why is it so difficult to complete homework and chores, make connections with peers, get along with family members, or even get dressed, brush one’s hair, or eat a meal?
Could these challenges be the result of innate intensity, sensitivity, idealism, a strong sense of justice, a vivid imagination, and a different way of seeing the world? If these questions strike a chord with you, chances are you have a gifted child or teen. Come talk with other parents in a supportive atmosphere about the special joys and challenges of raising gifted kids as a part of our next SENG Model Parent Group. We will look for the reasons underlying our struggles and strategies for working with our kids rather than trying to change who they are.
