About the evening: In this session, we will be discussing such issues as coping with the characteristics of giftedness; siblings and birth order; understanding introversion; gender issues; and keys to successful parenting. You will receive an owner’s manual, “Guidelines for Parents of the Gifted,” which contains suggestions for harmonious family life.
 
There will be a question and answer period, but I don’t have all the answers. Trust Yourself! No one knows your child better than you do.
