Book Discussion: 


Perfectionism can be a great attribute when you are creating a masterpiece, but it can cause severe problems, such as underachievement, procrastination and a feeling that your work can never measure up to your own expectations! The unhealthy side of perfectionism plagues many gifted individuals.  Come discuss perfectionism with other parents of gifted children.  

We all lead busy lives, if you are interested in the subject, please join us for the discussion. If you are interested in reading up on the subject, try one of the following books:
