When School Is Easy and Life Is Hard: The Blessed Challenge of Teaching the Gifted Child

By: Dana Wilson


Homeschooling a child whose academic abilities are years beyond his age presents a special challenge for the whole family. Preserving the necessary functions of childhood and encouraging appropriate emotional and social development while providing adequate academic challenges can be a daunting task, but it is worth the effort. This workshop discusses practical ways that parents can promote the natural, healthy, and necessary developments of childhood and young adulthood while creating an environment that fosters academic achievement.
