Parenting and Teaching the Gifted / Edition 1 available in Paperback
Parents of gifted students have often experienced the frustration of trying to get an appropriate education for their children in public and private schools. Teachers have equally experienced the frustration of trying to educate these students due to classroom demands. Over the past two decades, Callard-Szulgit has accumulated well over 1,000 questions asked by parents in her gifted parenting classes, her graduate students of gifted education, education colleagues, and gifted students themselves. This user-friendly book offers common sense and educationally informative answers to the questions and dilemmas that parents and teachers seek. Six chapters are devoted to: Who are the Gifted and Talented?, Programming and Curriculum Development, Perfectionism and Social/Emotional Development, Time Management & Homework Issues, Advocacy, and Gifted Children Speak Out. Humorous cartoons illustrate the text. This book will be of interest to all who seek a fair and equitable education for the gifted.

This work is a wonderful read for all parents and caregivers, not just those of "gifted" children. It should be required reading for all teachers and day care workers. I truly wish my parents had had the benefit of having read this book to assist them in my upbringing.
This book is excellent! Not only does it give great advice and tips on how to work and understand a gifted child but these techiques can also be applied with any special needs child. Highly recommened - and a great gift for any parent or teacher!
With her practical and creative experience with gifted children and their parents over a 35 year period, Callard-Szulgit leads the way with her common sense and workable solutions for all involved. Bravo!
