On the Social and Emotional Lives of Gifted Children
On the Social and Emotional Lives of Gifted Children Author:Tracy L. Cross "I am delighted that Tracy Cross has compiled his columns from 'Gifted Child Today' into a book. In the course I teach on Social Emotional Issues Facing Gifted Students, I often use his columns to illustrate the key issues in this important area. I find a great deal of wisdom in what he says, a common sense approach to dealing with counseling an... more »d parenting issues, and a practical counsel that comes from being a parent of gifted children, an administrator in a school for gifted students, and a researcher. He is careful in addressing both what we already know about social-emotional issues facing gifted students, as well as what we need to learn as researchers, teachers, and parents. I find his honesty refreshing, and I appreciate his ability to synthesize and present difficult issues in a kind and scholarly way. This book will be well-received by teachers, parents, and all those interested in current issues facing talented students."
