There was something else going on. I just didn’t know what it was. There were some wonderful moments in their childhoods that they would just blow me away and I’d be like, that’s so awesome. And there were other moments that were quite frightening as well.” – Anne Resources Hit play and let’s get started!

Nana- “I think if you let go of control on so many levels, actually, when you think about it. Yeah.”

Pop – “Yeah. It’s like I said, you just got to make sure that they’re safe.

“It’s been a journey for all of us as parents, grandparents, and I think we’ve always done a pretty good job of remaining curious, trying to keep judgment out of  the conversation, trying to understand each other.” – Sophia Elliott

Memorable Quote

“The hardest thing for me to do was change my attitude to children, you know, I had old-fashioned ideas.” – Pop

“I think once you get that [giftedness], when you have the education; and you’ve got to do a bit of reading yourself, once you’ve kind of got that in your mind. Actually, all you have to do really is accommodate them. You just have to love them.” – Nana

Memorable Quote

“So, the psychologist has just told you your child is gifted. Breathe, take a few deep breaths…

You know that it’s actually because your child’s brain is wired differently. And that encompasses not just a high IQ, but also these intense emotions and physical sensitivities that need to be taken into account as you parent, and as your child goes through school.

You know that it’s okay to grieve and feel any of those big emotions that you have and that you need to find your people.

That’s the beginning.” – Sophia Elliott
