What does the term “gifted” mean to you? Intelligent Gifted Talented Creative Every child has gifts, but not every child is “gifted”.

“ Many gifted kids and adults have a heightened sensitivity to their surroundings, to events, to ideas, and to expectations, including relentless pressure to excel.” -Martha Kaufeldt

Keeping Gifted Children Challenged… Research indicates that parents’ perceptions of their children’s talents are usually accurate. “… if adults don’t make accommodations to challenge their gifted children at home, it gives children a message that academic challenge is a lesser priority than social conformity and that hard work is unimportant.” Dr. Sylvia Rimm

“ Parent Pointers” by Dr. Sylvia Rimm: http://www.sylviarimm.com/ “ Try some positive achievement messages about your work to inspire your gifted children to become hard workers”: “ It’s been a hard day, but a good day.” “ I really helped someone today.” “ My education really paid off. I’m doing a job I enjoy.” “ This may not be an ideal job, but I’m learning many things. “ Your Dad/Mom is really respected for his/her work.” “ I guess you have to pay your dues. I don’t mind doing a little extra.” “ Let me tell you about my interesting day...” “ It feels good to make a difference.” “ I don’t know how your Mom/Dad does it all— PAFA, great cook, a college student, and a great wife/husband. You’re lucky kids.”

“ Try some positive achievement messages about your work to inspire your gifted children to become hard workers”:

“ It’s been a hard day, but a good day.”

“ I really helped someone today.”

“ My education really paid off. I’m doing a job I enjoy.”

“ This may not be an ideal job, but I’m learning many things.

“ Your Dad/Mom is really respected for his/her work.”

“ I guess you have to pay your dues. I don’t mind doing a little extra.”

“ Let me tell you about my interesting day...”

“ It feels good to make a difference.”

“ I don’t know how your Mom/Dad does it all— PAFA, great cook, a college student, and a great wife/husband. You’re lucky kids.”

It is important that we educate our family, friends, and community, the best way we can, on what “giftedness” means. Giftedness does not mean one child is better than another, it simply means gifted children have special needs and that we are partners in meeting those needs in flexible and appropriate ways.
