An evening for parents and teachers
A/Prof Alina Morawska
Parenting Gifted Children
Gifted children and their parents experience some unique needs. While in general gifted and talented children exhibit no more behavioural difficulties than do other children, they may experience greater levels of emotional symptoms and peer problems. Parental confidence in managing children’s behavioural and emotional difficulties has been identified as an important factor in helping parents work through parenting challenges. This presentation will focus on some of the challenges of parenting gifted and talented children and ways to both prevent and manage such challenges. Research on the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program and some of the tailoring in the program for parents of gifted and talented children will be discussed.
