Help parents understand and develop skills for nurturing the development of their gifted children
SENG Model Parent Groups (SMPGs) are structured to bring together 10 to 20 interested parents of gifted and talented children to discuss such topics as motivation, discipline, stress management, and peer relationships. The co‐facilitators of the group, though they are knowledgeable about parenting and about educating gifted/talented children, do not attempt to give expert advice to families. Instead their facilitation provides a non‐judgmental and nurturing atmosphere. The parents of the high ability children are themselves a rich resource of information, and they are able to get fresh ideas from other parents and from A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children, the book around which the sessions are organized. The groups meet weekly for 8‐10 weeks.
