Peers: Finding Pots of Gold - Houston
Transcript of Peers: Finding Pots of Gold - Houston
Gifted people develop asynchronously which often mean their peers will not be of the same age. Interestingly, as adults we don't segregate or work by age so school sets an artificial social environment for children. Once you let go of looking for same age peers, the world opens up!
Sometimes you can find clubs to join
Sometimes you have to start them yourself.
My experience has been when my girls volunteered with others passionate about the same cause, people forgot to ask how old they were.....
Peers and the Gifted Child:
Finding Pots of Gold
TAGT Parent Conference - Houston
Online Communities and classes for Gifted Kids
I imagine the journey to finding true peers as a treasure hunt. Whether at the end of a rainbow or where X marks the spot, it is not an easy journey for many gifted children and their parents. My kids are certainly the captains of this pirate ship but they need a navigator and that is me. I hear word of mouth legends and myths but where is the map? The truth is, there is no map. I hope today's resources help you navigate toward better peer relations for your child.
