Happy Thanksgiving!

By November 22, 2012

Follow me on:

It's time to put aside the frustrations you may be feeling as you try to get your gifted child the appropriate academic services. It's time to stop fretting about what you will do about schooling with your advanced three-year-old.

It's Thanksgiving, which means it's time to look around and take stock of all the things you can be thankful for. A meaningful activity for the family at the Thanksgiving dinner table is for each family member to talk about what he or she is thankful for. It's a great way for the family to focus on the positive things in their lives and to share those thoughts with the rest of the family.

Thanksgiving is also a time to help our children understand why the pilgrims left England and what life was like for them when they arrived. Here are some Web sites to visit with the kids:

  • Virtual photo tour of Plimoth Plantation -- a picture album of the Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where visitors can talk with "pilgrims" about their daily lives.
  • Plymouth Rock! -- a brief history of the Plymouth Landing by Kim Knox Beckius, About.com Guide to New England Travel

I would like to say how thankful I am for my wonderful gifted son and for the opportunity to be your About.com Guide to Gifted Children! What are you thankful for? Click on the comments link below and share your thoughts.

I am thankful to live in a country where we can worship God, love him and have the freedom of choice.
