CGCC Parenting Book Clubs


Parents of gifted children meet roughly once a month to discuss a specific book or article that is of interest to the group.  Come to all the discussions, or come to only those that specifically pertain to you.  Read the book in depth, skim it, or take a look at the cover on Amazon before your run out the door!  The objective is to use the book to frame the discussion with other parents who face the same kinds of parenting challenges you do!
