With the Our Gifted Kids Podcast

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.
