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.

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.
