Review: Parenting Gifted Kids: Tips for Raising Happy and Successful Children by teacher, counselor, college professor, and parent James R. Delisle is an expert collection of tactful and educated approaches to children. Deftly examining and exploring the findings of child-psychology and his experiences of over thirty years of working with children, Professor Delisle offers his readers a cogent understanding of giftedness in children, how to work with the school system, dealing with perfectionism in gifted children, being an adult role model for children, building a child's character, and helping kids achieve their goals and dreams.
