Changing the focus from perfection to personal bests 1. Play up personal strengths In a competitive society, many kids strive from an early age toward the superlatives. They 2. Play down competitions While there will always be those who talk about preparing kids for a dog-eat-dog world, when. Another way to nurture your gifted child’s talent is to supply toys and games that will stimulate his interests and enhance his or her thinking, problem-solving and creative skills.

Since gifted children likes to tackle difficult toys and games beyond their. The gifted child is still a child, no matter what his talent. That child needs to run and play and laugh and daydream just as other children do. Nevertheless, rearing a gifted child is a challenge, but the task becomes less fearful when the parent knows the school is a helpful partner.

Keep books out—in baskets, on shelves, and on coffee tables. And share what you’re reading with your child, and ask him to do the same. This will not only spark conversation but build his vocabulary and comprehension. Praise results. Stick-to-itiveness is a quality that will endear your child to teachers—and employers.

Areas Children Can Explore At-home activities are a great way to reinforce concepts being learned at school (or that your child will encounter once enrolled), but they are also a good opportunity to expose your child to a variety of ways to captivate their mind—some that you may discover they have a special talent for or interest in. 1 Chat to their teacher and expose them to community art organisations, library events, sport clubs and so on. 2 Support them by showing an interest in their hobbies and talents. For example, if your child has a knack for numbers, check their homework, or if they’re good at athletics, attend their practice sessions.

3 Let them enjoy life. • Recognize that your gifted child’s emotional and social abilities may not match his intellectual ones. When you face a sudden emotional outburst, before you react, remind yourself of his actual chronological age. • Keep in mind that asynchrony means that your child’s needs vary enormously at different times. Encourage Self-Expression While your gifted child may be a whiz at math or writing, don’t hyperfocus their lives.

Allow your child to explore the arts, music, sports, and other paths. Putting too much pressure on one area can cause a child to stress or burn-out early in life. While it’s important to nurture your gifted child’s potential and love of learning by following his interests, it’s equally important to expose him to new things. Create a learning-rich environment with loads of great books, games, and puzzles. By rotating exciting new things, your kids may discover new passions.

Talk to them about your child and ask them to help you nurture your child’s interest or talent. Such trusted adults can spend time with your child doing the activity your child loves to do or put your child in touch with a person or organisation who could help them develop their talent or interest.

Parenting Gifted and Talented Children Parenting a child who possesses untrained natural ability (giftedness) or abilities, skills, or knowledge that have been developed and subsequently place them in the top 15% of individuals (talented) can present unique challenges for parents and for teachers (Gagne, 2003).

Those assuming the nature side of the argument emphasize the inborn, heritable ability and intrinsic drive of the gifted child (e.g., high IQ), whereas those assuming the nurture side of the argument suggest that giftedness is the product of hard work or deliberate practice (Bloom, 1985).

  • Lol, I kno m useless and not gifted, I kno so many things but can’t come in like the top ten ranking kids… So, no one really cares about the things I kno…… Hah…. Life is hard…..

  • Honestly, I know I am gifted (My parents and teachers just finished the observation sheet) although it has not been “confirmed” yet, but the only difference between me and other gifted students is that my emotions do not go so mad and sad when work is easy(as a matter a fact, that is a compliment for me), but I do understand why it happens to many gifted students though.

  • idk if i am gifted or not but believe it or not i always get a vision of whats going to happen in the future its like its like a deja vu i already know whats going to happen its like a glimpse it happens in less than a second like a flashback idk what to do i don’t even know if i am a gifted or if thats something else

  • Sadguru I have naturally brought up my child the way you have explained here. He is going to 9th class now and there are influences of school/teachers/friends/relatives all telling me that the way upbring my child is not right and that my child will suffer if he doesn’t follow the rules set by society. It really doesn’t matter to me coz these all will change but the connection of me and my child will be till the end of this life and beyond if the souls have liked the learnings from each other.
    It’s good that my husband understands this and so we three are being the way we are and don’t choose to change. I and my husband understand that there is a purpose why my son has entered our lives. We are just going by the flow.
    Seek your blessings to receive clear directions.

  • Sadhguru told the right thing.. our parents did their best in the way they brought up.. we are unfortunate that our before generations didn’t know this.. hopefully for future kids it should be helpful..

  • thank you for this video. It is very helpful when it comes to doing my college assignments on giftedness. There arn’t many articles that can help rather than these online videos which is a bit frustrating….oh well…better than reading!:)

  • This is what education is for to help those who don’t already know about this so they can help their kid or children successful in life. We all had to go through these stages whether they were easy or hard its so that when you see children in your facility who are behind in their language skills such as speech, or not walking at a certain age there may be some learning disabilities that may arise not because you did anything wrong but because of generics. DNA also plays a role in your child cognitive and mental growth.

  • It’s actually really hard being gifted, some people in my classes say us gifted people, have everything easy. It’s not true, it’s hard to find something in class that you don’t already know, it annoys me so much. My teachers never assign me for anything harder than the other students, I actually go to two schools, a normal one, and a one for gifted students. I don’t really like the gifted one, because it’s just hard being the only new one in the grade, but at my normal school I’ve been going to for years, everyone knows me and they all like hanging out with me.

  • I’ve got 5 kids. My older 3 are teens, and all are in AP, Honors classes and have been. Oldest is going to college now for premed soon. Next one is going for forensics, and my 14 year old is going to early college, meaning 4 years of high school at the local community college will yield a high school diploma and a 2-year college degree. My 4 year old and 1 year old are already showing huge signs of being above and ahead of their age group. I have ALWAYS been the kind of parent to work with my kids… we’ve done everything I can think of. And now with the younger two, they’ll probably do better due to what I’ve learned as a parent and can guide their learning better. We don’t train like this, but if we’re home together during the day, there’s always something to sing or play or learn, rather than watching tv all day! My son at 12 months old was doing the hokie pokie dance! They can learn what you teach them. Work with your kids. You’ll be amazed at what you can do as a parent, and how far that will go in their lives! ❤️

  • sometimes high IQ is a disadvantage completely. I have met people with high IQ and they are clueless wrecks. All they can do is quote books. They cannot generate their own information. They rely on the accumulation of data.

  • Namaskaram, Continuously giving a Parental Guidance and Enlightening ideas in my Though Process. Definitely its taken me in a Right Path in Nurturing The Children. Thanks to Almighty and Sadhguru!!!

  • Got an 18 months old baby girl who could already memorize everything inside her books, she already know all the words in her for books, will gonna share to you all in my channel if when did I start exposing her to books and everything to learn.

  • I am gifted, I always have been, but I’m just like every other kid! I like to play, run around, I. am. normal! just a bit smarter!
