By Carol Bainbridge:
I am the parent of one highly gifted boy and I know that parenting a gifted child can be like a roller coaster ride. At times it is fun and exciting; other times it is lonely and frustrating. I remember the lonely and frustrating times, times when I had no one to talk to, no one who seemed to understand me or my child. I am forever grateful to those more experienced parents of gifted children and to the kind and thoughtful people in the Indiana Association for the Gifted. These people let me know they understood and gave me both support and advice. My goal is to provide that same understanding, support and advice for other parents of gifted children.
