Who are we & how can we help you?
Hello and welcome home. This is a place you belong, where you and your beautiful family can be your quirky and perhaps slightly eccentric selves. Somewhere you can ask questions you’ve been too afraid to ask elsewhere. A place you can celebrate your successes.
We gather resources from all over the globe to help you parent these unique critters, feel seen and heard, and give you peace of mind no matter what stage you’re at.
Maybe you don’t know if your child is gifted but you have a feeling something is not quite as it seems?
Maybe you’ve been through the assessment process or are considering it?
Maybe, like me, you have gifted kids and you’re taking one day at a time as they change and grow and you’d like to share that journey with folk who get it?

2. Join our Facebook Group
It’s time to meet your tribe.
Our Facebook Group is full of parents sharing their journey and has regular guest visits.
Join in, ask questions and make friends.
3. Get to know Our Tribe
It’s hard to say out loud ‘I have a gifted kid’; there is a real taboo and a lot of misunderstanding.
That’s why we think it’s important to share our stories and on the ‘Our Tribe’ page you will find stories from parents like you, talking about their children and their journey.
What Parents Say
“Peace of mind”
I try very hard to model patience and understanding but sometimes I am overwhelmed by the constant negotiation and exhaustion of parenting such an intense child alone with no supports. It would give me peace of mind that I have done all I can to raise a good, kind person and someone who can live to his full potential.

“Parents need help”
They are feeling so desperate and feeling so disappointed in themselves and the perfectionism is so destructive. The depression and the anxiety that goes along with this is what parents need help with the most.

“A great support team”
I don’t want them to feel weird and that they don’t belong anywhere, and to have low self-esteem because of it. We have a great support team, great friends and a great school, [so] I know they’ll be fine.

“Life is an adventure”
I want them to be humble about their strengths and work hard on their challenges. I’m often unsure of the right questions to ask to get the information I’m looking for [but] at the end of the day the goal is happy, fulfilled kids – how to get there is the adventure.
