    As a parent of three gifted children
    I am here to talk about all things gifted…

    Because I’ve been where you are now, wondering what to do and where to get help. Feeling alone and isolated and like ‘one of those parents’. Wondering what alternate reality I’d just fallen into?

    Then I found peace of mind, support, and my tribe.

    This Podcast is about sharing that journey, actually parenting gifted kids and connecting with advice and support so we have everything we need for every member of our family to thrive.

    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.

    Bella
    Mum of 2 Gifted kids

    “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.
