The Survival Guide for Parents of Gifted Kids: How to Understand, Live With, and Stick Up for Your Gifted Child
By Sally Yahnke Walker
This is a good introduction to raising gifted children for parents of elementary age children. The author describes how gifted children, when made to repeat basic work, “quickly become bored and lose their motivation.” This is where the Open Window curriculum shines: the teachers continually assess children’s skills and knowledge and advance them (or provide extra support) as needed.
