From their decades of professional experience working with gifted children and their families, they provide practical guidance in key areas of concern for parents, such as the characteristics commonly seen in gifted children, peer relations, sibling issues, motivation and underachievement, discipline issues, intensity and stress, depression and unhappiness, education planning, parenting concerns, finding professional help, and much more. This is a book that parents will turn to again and again. Distinguished as an iParenting Media Award-Winner, USA Books News Award-Winner, and GLYPH Award-Winner

   My first choice
I ordered four books on Gifted Children this year : Living with intensity, raising a gifted child and emotional intensity in gifted students. The last one I have not read. This book describes the child's behavior and also gives strategies to deal with them. I also loved the comment that often the parent needs their parent to understand. Having a gifted child is not easy and parents also need support. I think it is most important to be well informed ''. In each of the books I read, I got another idea, another suggestion or an e-mail site. I have not yet read Emotional Intensity with Gifted students.
   Outstanding Book for Panicking Parents of the Gifted
Because my PhD is in Gifted Education, I have read dozens of books and hundreds of articles, literally thousands of pages on the subject of gifted children. I have also spoken children for 15 years and taught at national conferences. The book of Webb is outstanding and thorough. It leads parents through understanding giftedness, including IQ, Dabrowski's overexciteabilities, gifted children with disabilities, testing, school care of the gifted, discipline and home life, and other important topics. This book is also very appropriate for gifted teachers and those who do research in gifted education.
   Helpful & Practical
So grateful to have found this book '', so incredibly grateful. If you suspect that your child is gifted, this is a must-read.
   Mind blown
That is me reading this book. And I am only on page 22! It already has explained so much about the way my eight-year-old son, an aspiring engineer, thinks and processes the world around him -- and why he has trouble forming close friendships, though he wants desperately to be liked by everyone. “The simple act of passing the salt becomes a three-act play ” Yep, that is my daughter, but with her it is spontaneous, original songs. Often, with hilarious texts.
   Exceptional information
I bought this book for both my daughter and myself because her six-year-old son was labeled as gifted. This book is called FANTASTIC. My daughter says it is like she is reading about her son specifically. It is easily written, well read and loaded with information. I am sure that both of us will refer to it for years to come. The authors know REALLY what they are talking about. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a gifted child.
