Indian Prairie Project Arrow PTA invites parents to "Parenting Precocious Children and Teens: Understanding the Ups and Downs of Growing Up Gifted and How to Advocate for Gifted in a School Setting " by Dr. James Delisle at 7 pm on Wednesday, October 5, at Metea Valley High School, 1801 N. Eola Road, Aurora.
Parents of gifted children and teens have many questions about how best to meet their intellectual and emotional needs. They want to know what giftedness is and the label’s impact on other family members. They want to know how to advocate for their gifted child in a school setting mired in ‘bringing up the bottom’ rather than ‘raising the bar’ at the top. They want to know how to set expectations that are appropriate and balanced. And they want to know how to juggle the wide range of emotional intensities that often accompanies growing up gifted.
Tickets for this event are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Tickets are available at: http://ippapta.eventbrite.com
