From solving social problems, to dealing with perfectionism, and developing time-management strategies, to mastering goal setting, this book is the most comprehensive, up-to-date guide for gifted kids, their parents, and teachers. Based on years of research and experience, this book is actually two books in one—an exciting easy-to-read, high-interest book for bright students and a book for parents and teachers.
For Bright Students! The student section of the book helps gifted kids master the strategies they need to be happy and successful by actively involving them in understanding the problems they face and in using the strategies needed to cope with them successfully. Topics include separating facts from feelings, stress, peer pressure, being introspective, dealing with authority, social issues, depression, and much more. Written just for students, this section provides thought-provoking activities that lead to coping skills.
For Parents and Teachers! The parent and teacher section defines who capable kids are, the problems and needs they face, and the many ways parents and teachers can help them develop coping strategies. Topics include the definition of giftedness, emotional development, social development, moral development, perfectionism, boredom, drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, family functioning, and much more. Extensive and current reference and resource listings are included.
