Format: Paperback
Grandparenting today's gifted child can be very different from parenting gifted children 20 or 30 years ago. Though perhaps not as involved in day-to-day upbringing as the parents, grandparents can have a profound effect on the gifted child. But Grandparenting the gifted, as with Grandparenting any child, is a balancing act. And with the gifted child, there are many different things to balance...

Maximizing Grandparenting means more than just hugs and kisses. Fun and games (and learning how to compete), museums and cultural events, family history, mentoring, and more... there are many ways a grandparent can contribute to the gifted child's life. And of course, there's the lasting legacy of contributions to a personal college or other account for your gifted grandchild, as well as contributions to organizations supporting gifted children in general.

Grandparents sometimes run into sticky situations: perhaps you are concerned that the parent-who-is-also-your-child isn't supporting the grandkids' gifts enough? Or perhaps you fear that they're a little too pushy? What is a gifted grandparent to do? Grandparents' Guide to Gifted Children covers all the delicate aspects of Grandparenting a gifted child.

And if the Grandparent is also the parent? Grandparents' Guide brings grandparents "up to speed" on the latest in gifted education, educational planning, and the challenges of raising and educating the gifted child today.

Don't miss the chapter on special concerns of today's gifted child: perfectionism, underachievement, sensitivity, stress, and more.

Grandparents' Guide to Gifted Children covers all these topics and more. This book is a "don't miss" for caring Grandparents of every gifted child today. I must admit, I am not a grandparent, but I am happy to have my kids' grandparents read this book!

Grandparents' fortunate enough to read this book will receive tons of information not only about understanding gifted grandchildren, but also about good grandparenting in general.

The book contains tons of ideas that will help grandparents struggling to understand the whole concept of giftedness as well as those ready to jump in and do advocacy work.

I can see multiple uses; parent to grandparents, grandparent to parent, grandparent to grandchildren and vice versa, as well as to other members of the family - aunts and uncles - and the community as well. The information enclosed will help all.

Sandra Warren,

Parent Advocate for Gifted Children

Grandparents can play a supremely influential role in the shaping of their grandchildren's lives and well-being.

Webb, educational consultant Janet L. Gore, gifted studies expert Francs A. Karnes, and attorney A. Stephen McDaniel (with five grandchildren of his own), Grandparents' Guide To Gifted Children will enable the reader to identify the signs of advanced development and the special needs of bright children; understanding the unique roles of grandparenting such children; building a bond with a grandchild; getting the most from grandparenting; as well as developing education plans, what to do when a grandparent becomes the parent, and planning for a grandchild's future. Also available in a Large Print paperback edition (0910707-685, $24.95), Grandparents' Guide To Gifted Children should be a part of every community library Parenting Resources collection.
