I have been lurking through this forum and I have read so many useful insights from so many wonderful parents. My son is mildly gifted and the psychologist that 1st tested him suggested I join a TAG parent group. That was 2 years ago. We have a mailing list but I have always felt like an outsider, like I have been spying. I feel like they are all about pushing their children and acheiving. I leave those threads wondering if I am too easy going. Am I failing my son in preparing him for future academic success because I let him be bored?
I just feel like so many moms here understand how to parent a gifted child with balance. These are children who just happen to be gifted not brilliant minds that happened to be encased in child-wrapping. Thank you for helping to refresh and confirm my own sense of perspective.
I will go back to lurking. And again, I thank you all.
