Reviews - What do customers think about Educating Your Gifted Child?

Nice Christian Resource  Dec 30, 2006
It was pretty obvious to me this book would be a christian resource when I read the back cover. If you are not a Christian, then this is NOT the book for you. However if you are looking for a book about dealing with your child's giftedness with a Christian slant this is a great resource. It gets at the heart of emotional issues and how to help your child look at their giftedness while realizing it is God's gift to be used for His kingdom. It is especially strong in social and emotional areas, while lacking in acedemic resources. The many quotes from the Bible are helpful to those kids who read their Bible and may help them to appreciate their gift and act humble about it.
Unexpectedly Christian, and other books are better  Feb 8, 2006
Although I am Christian, I did not find the author's use of religious perspective helpful in conveying information about educating gifted children. That aside, it is not among the better books I've read about raising gifted children. I thought the author reflected about gifted children rather than giving parents or educators new ideas or a framework in which to understand and encourage gifted children. My current favorite is "Teaching Gifted Kids in the Regular Classroom" by Susan Winebrenner.
Just be aware...  Dec 13, 2005
I did find this book helpful. At least, it did support a lot of what I recognized about my own child. However, I was unprepared for the fact that it quotes a fair amount of Christian scripture. There is nothing in the descriptions I read before hand that let me know - although is was published by a "Good News" press which I didn't notice. Many people may find the quotes supportive and loving. Unfortunately, I found it took away from my focus on my G/T child's education - probably because I was not looking for a "christian" book on G/T education. If I had been, this book would fit the bill.
An excellent and informative starting point  Feb 11, 2003
Educating Your Gifted Child by Vicki Caruana is a thoroughly user-friendly resource for parents of gifted children, dispelling common myths about parenting and about especially gifted/talented children, offering stories drawn from true-life experience, sharing encouragement for those having a responsibility to raise a talented or gifted child, and presenting very practical advice on gifted children's academic, emotional, and social needs. Covering preschool through college and challenges on the job, and specifically written for parents who work closely with the public school system, as well as homeschooling parents, Educating Your Gifted Child provides an excellent and informative starting point.
