Research Based Parenting Tips
  • Never compare children with siblings or others
  • Never do your child's homework or project
  • Allow downtime
  • Encourage both structured and unstructured activities
  • Join state and national gifted organizations and attend conferences
  • Encourage interests, even those that don't seem "productive" to you
  • The program is worthless if the child does not want to participate
  • Focus on learning instead of grades
  • Encourage effort instead of praising achievement
  • Focus on process of learning instead of just being right
  • Never criticize a creative project for not being perfect
  • Avoid power struggles
