Navigating the joys and challenges of raising a gifted child can be difficult, and most of us could use some extra support. GRC offers periodic sessions led by professionals in education and/or the gifted community.
GRC’s current set of parenting sessions includes:
Tuesday, Feb. 8 – Helping Your Gifted Child Develop Friendships with Agnes Meyo
Tuesday, Feb. 15 – Parent Chat moderated by Susan Jesse & Laura Falk
Tuesday, Feb. 22 – How Much is Too Much Screen Time? with Rick Hasler
Tuesday, Mar. 1 – How Much is Too Much Pressure? with Heidi Harris
Sessions are free for GRC members, or $15 each for non-members.
