What a damned relief to open this book right to page 41 and read the two paragraphs entitled The Motor Skills Gap. As a matter of a fact I laughed right through that whole section, Living with Your Gifted Child, because it described my son so perfectly, and even gave me some insight into my own childhood behaviors.
No matter where you are in the process of parenting a gifted child--discovering that you actually have one, figuring out how to best help your child be at their best emotionally, or working within the school and even the state legislature to bring about supportive programs--this book has lots of guidance and suggestions, especially for more reading. The book itself is a bit of a quick read--I got it at 3 pm and at 8 pm am sitting here writing about it--but I can see that it's something I'll refer to over and over again as various issues come up.
Will I ever be able to answer my son's (incessant) questions about what happened before the Big Bang? No. But with help from this book and books like it, I'll be able to help create a supportive environment that will help him get the answers he needs.
