I have mentioned this book before because I used an article of the author’s in my book, but I have just finished it today and I’m totally convinced that if I had known of the emotional needs of gifted children and how to deal with them, that Kaitlyn would probably still be alive today. Though she showed no signs of depression, I know from being with her, being her mother that her thought processes were very deep. She often pondered over things that children her own age would not bother to even think about. She was a brilliant idealist and saw the world as it should be, but also realized it was far from being that. These intelligent idealist often become depressed from these issues. Even though she did not show signs, if I had known that they could be so possible in the mind of a bright child, I would have questioned her on these issues. This information was out there when she was born. I know this because this author has devoted his life to informing people of the emotional needs of children all his professional life. Only….I never knew of its existence.
If she herself would have known about and read this book….I KNOW it could have helped her.
To anyone out there that has a gifted child in their life, I can’t stress enough the importance of the information in this book.
