Publisher: GHF Press
Author: Corin Barsily Goodwin
Does your gifted or 2e child have enough friends? What qualifies as “enough”? Whom should they be friends with and how can they keep those friends? Parents of asynchronous children are often criticized as "helicopter parents" by others who don't understand the need for scaffolding. Others take a complete hands-off approach our of fear or self-doubt. In their latest book, Corin Barsily Goodwin and Mika Gustavson, authors of "Making the Choice: When Typical School Doesn’t Fit Your Atypical Child," explore a parent's role in their child's social development and how we know when we are doing too much or too little to create age- and intellectually appropriate social opportunities for your child. In "Writing Your Own Script: A Parent’s Role in the Gifted Child’s Social Development," Corin and Mika will show you how to help your child to discover the joy of true friendships based on common interests, shared values, and mutual understanding—and help you understand your role in guiding them!
