Does anyone have any insight or book/website recommendations for helping my almost five year old overcome her perfectionist tendencies? I don't know that she's gifted, per se, so I didn't post in the gifted forum, but I do find that she's the most critical of herself and easily frustrated in the areas where she seems the most accomplished, like in drawing (mostly attempts at representative drawings) and in language skills like reading and writing. She gets quite despondent and unhappy and gives up because her attempts don't come out like she wants them too. Happy activities, like drawing a picture for a special friend, can often end in tears.
