Parenting the Gifted Blog Tour 2012

A couple of weeks ago I shared ideas and resources for when something is wrong with your child's learning. But what if your child's learning is radically accelerated? What if your child is “gifted”? Many people mistakenly believe that parenting a gifted child would be easy. In reality, gifted children can come with their own set of unique social emotional issues including intensity, perfectionism, and difficulty blending in with their peer groups.

This is why I am so excited that my personal blog, Teaching My Baby to Read , is going to be participating in the Parenting the Gifted Blog Tour 2012 from July 15-21st. This blog tour is organized by parents who come from different parts of the country, different school choices, and different social and economic backgrounds, but who all have one thing in common. We know that parenting a gifted child can sometimes be as challenging as it is rewarding.

From July 15-21 the Parenting the Gifted Blog Tour will discuss some of the most pertinent issues facing gifted education today:

• On July 15th Childhood Inspired will write about "Loneliness as a Gifted Parent". Our Roxaboxen Adventures will discuss "Identifying Gifted Minority Students".

• On July 16th Sceleratus Classical Academy will share "Don't Panic! Musings about realizing that your child's learning pattern is ahead of schedule."

• On July 17th Teaching My Baby to Read will feature “When School Isn't Enough; Fanning the Flames of Learning Afterschool”.

• On July 18th Homeschooling: or Who's Ever Home will write about "A Broader Definition of Success for Gifted Children".

• On July 19th A Tree House Education will feature "2E Issues". Homeschool in Florida will share "Get Out of Your Own Way: How to Listen to the Needs of Your Gifted Child".

• On July 20th Making Music With Kids will discuss "Finding a Good Fit for a Preschooler You Suspect is Gifted". Barely Educational will offer "Worrying Too Much and Overanalyzing Parenting"

• On July 21st Teaching My Baby to Read will feature guest posts. Dancing with Dragons will write about "Teaching the Visual Spatial Learner: When Your Child Thinks in Pictures".
