Summary

Do you have a gifted child? If you do, you would understand that having gifted children is not as easy as most parent thinks.

You hear people who keep on judging you and your parenting style, saying, "What can be so hard about raising a smart kid? They always do well in school."

They just don't get it, they don't see the whole picture.... Your kid needs more attention, care, and love than regular ones.

Are you confident that you know and can deliver those things to your child?

You see, sometimes you are doing so many things at the same time, you forget they demand 100 percent of your attention. And to do that, you have to understand them, their struggles and strengths. 

But sometimes, it's overwhelming! And you find it hard to know where to start. This audiobook will help you do that just that!

You don't need to be overwhelmed, you just have to know where to start.

Insightful

Good enough to gain insight in the situation of my daughter and all the possible troubles she will face. That’s what I bought it for so that’s great. This can be used as a foundation before reading more in depth books on the topic. I especially appreciate the personal experiences shared by the author. The narrator was a bit boring, a monotone making me glad to reach the and that it was short.

Good book exactly as described. Fits more for younger kids I felt like even though there were examples of high school age. Good info either way.

Awful on every level. Truly.

First off, I had to keep increasing the narration speed. I ended up on 2X and still, the words were coming too slow. The content here is below the level of a high school English paper. No research situations, it even anecdotal research. I have 3 wonderful and difficult gifted children, including being one myself. I wouldn't even call this a book. Utter waste of time. Cute and attractive cover, I will give it that.

Ok content, very poorly edited

This book is short, but has reasonably helpful, albeit, high-level guidance. Unfortunately, it suffers from jarringly poor grammar and syntax.

The narration is terrible.

Not sure if all the obvious grammar mistakes are the fault of the narrator or author. Very distracting and discrediting.

Okay

Sorry, but I can only read this as OK. Although the author describes having gifted family members, and her message is helpful, I wish her editor had been better. The English used is sometimes incorrect, as though perhaps English is her second language. The reason it matters is because I was distracted by it. The editor didn’t do her any favors.

Not The Book You Are Looking For

As other reviews have pointed out the grammatical errors of this book are distracting. I'm also concerned that there is no scientific proof provided for the authors assertions. Though the author talked about her family members and their gifted abilities, she appears to have no other background in this area. For parents looking to find understanding and help, this is not the book you are looking for.
