Does anyone really know what you’re going through as a parent of a gifted child? Parents need special understanding in order to raise and advocate for the social and emotional needs of their gifted children. To this end, SENG is proud to sponsor during the third week in July each year National Parenting Gifted Children (NPGC) Week, an event listed in the National Special Events Registry. NPGC Week celebrates the joys and challenges of raising, guiding, and supporting bright young minds.
