“Is my child gifted?” That is the question asked most often by parents of gifted children. After that question, the most frequently asked question is “How do I nurture my gifted child?” Here are five simple answers to that question.
Follow Your Child’s Lead
What does your child enjoy? What does your child seem to be good at? Provide opportunities for your child to works with things he or she enjoys or is good at. For example, if your child loves dinosaurs, get books about dinosaurs, fiction and non-fiction. Get games and puzzles about dinosaurs. Go see dinosaurs at museums. If your child is good at music or a sport, provide opportunities for him or her to learn an instrument or play a sport.
