    Parent Suppers

Leave the kids at home and come unwind with the parents of other gifted children.  Share your experiences, learn a new strategy or two, and have a good laugh with others who understand.

With your help we would like to plan suppers all over Chicagoland!  The steps are:

  1. Pick a date and time that work for you.
  2. Select a restaurant.
  3. Contact us - we create a new event, spread the word, attending the dinner . . .
  4. Make a reservation and have fun!

If you are willing to plan a supper in your area, Let Us Know!

    • Tacos El Norte, 1590 S. Milwaukee Avenue, Libertyville, Illinois 60048

    If you are parenting a gifted child, or suspect you might be parenting a gifted child, please meet us for dinner and conversation with other parents of gifted children from our local area. We can share our stories, our questions, and our information to help each other out while having an enjoyable dinner.

    We are growing the gifted community in the far north suburbs! Feel free to invite other families you believe would enjoy or benefit from experience with our community.

    There is no charge for this event, as everyone will pay their own way.  Please register so we reserve the right sized table for our group.

    Please Note: The entrance to the restaurant as well as parking is located on Artaius Parkway.
