The course is a very effective and practical way to give you tools to guide your (possibly) gifted child (ren) on an emotional level.
In the education of my own children, I would have loved these tools. Meanwhile, my children have grown up and since 2009 I have been giving education to gifted children in Zeeland.
I myself, when my children were very young (1996), became a member of the Pharos parents' association. I found a lot of recognition there. However, it was not enough. The themes described above are very current and well applicable. They were developed in the United States by James T. Webb (SENG).
In the summer of 2017 I flew to Chicago and I was trained by, among others, James T. Webb as an SMPG facilitator. This means that I am qualified to give this course to parents of gifted children..
