I am the mother of gifted children.
Raising gifted kids can be an isolating experience for both parent and child. After my children were identified, the focus for the school became my children's academic needs, but there is so much more than IQ to gifted kids. Gifted kids, in general, experience the world on a much more intense level and need special support. My children, for instance, have sensory processing needs and anxiety issues. I've researched and read and advocated for my kids on my own. I'm going to share my journey, both the hilarious and humbling, on the Gifted Mom Life blog. I hope my story will help to encourage you in your journey with Intense and Quirky kids.
If you're going to follow my story, introductions are in order. First, there is me and my wonderful, supportive husband. I'm the serious one, making sure all the bases are covered and a habitual list maker. (Truly, I make lists of my lists. It's a sickness.) He's the crazy one with a great sense of humor. He keeps us all laughing and keeps me balanced. We have 3 Intense and Quirky kids who you will meet in all their IQ glory on the Gifted Mom Life blog. Be sure to check it out.
Welcome to our family.
It's nice to meet you!
