Intensity, Perfectionism, Stress and Idealism

Join us for a roundtable for parents of gifted children on the first Tuesday of most months this school year. The discussions will loosely follow the book: A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children by Webb, et. al.   

This month we will discuss the intensity, perfectionism, stress and Idealism.  Giftedness is often accompanied by many intensities, and these intensities can lead to other challenges.  Let's explore some of those!  

Those following along in the book might like to read chapters 6 and 7.  

First Tuesdays is facilitated by Kathy Nilles and Newenka DuMont.  Kathy is the mother of a gifted son, has a masters in gifted education and is the manager of  Parent Services for the National Association for Gifted Children.  Newenka is the parent of two gifted daughters, the president of the Chicago Gifted Community Center, on the board of the Illinois Association for Gifted Children and a master SENG Parent Group facilitator.  

The member fee for First Tuesdays is $3 per session or $10 for the remainder of the series. Non-members pay $ 6 per session.  Membership is $25 annually, won't you consider joining CGCC and supporting our mission to facilitate educational and emotional support for gifted children and their families?  Fee waivers are always available, contact Newenka DuMont for details.
