00:00:00 Welcome and hello. I wanted to take a moment to say hi.

Our gifted kids is here to start a conversation. So we started a podcast and I’m so glad that you found it today. This podcast is about sharing the journey of actually parenting gifted kids and connecting with advice and support. So we have everything we need for every member of our family to thrive.

00:00:25 It’s a place to get together, share our knowledge and celebrate our quirky community. As a parent of three, very different, challenging, awesome, gifted kids I wanted to talk about all things gifted because this is an important conversation to have as a community. We need to understand gifted kids better so that our parenting and our educating is responding to what these quirky kids need to thrive.

00:00:53 Not just survive, but grow up into happier adults. Leading lives that they love.

I’ve been where you are now wondering what to do and where to get help. I felt alone and isolated and ashamed of admitting that my kids are gifted. I felt like ‘one of those parents’, the ones everyone hates. Wondering what ultimate reality I’d just fallen into.

I found peace of mind when I found support through my own tribe.

00:01:26 Other parents of gifted kids, I could finally share my five-year-old’s obsession with the periodic table without feeling like a total twat and everyone understood. And everyone had their own stories to share –  who knew the periodic table was so entertaining?

I’ve learned some new parenting tricks that work with my kids. I’ve been able to resolve their education challenges and I’ve had the space and the energy to ask what does my family need so that we all thrive.

00:01:57 My kids, my husband, even me and our dog. What do we need for today?

What can we do now as parents that will help our kids grow up to be happy, emotionally grounded, confident, and resilient adults, brave enough to follow their own path. If you’d like to be a part of this conversation and share your experience wherever you are in that journey,

00:02:25 or maybe you’re someone who works with gifted kids and would like to share your work or services, send me a message at ourgiftedkids.com because this is all about building community.
