This course is intended for parents of gifted students.

Gifted students are a lot like snowflakes; no two students are alike. While one student might need very little encouragement to excel, motivating the next might feel like trying to wring sap from a tree with bare hands. There’s no sweeping answer to motivation, but there are prescriptive strategies that can help to encourage the gifted underachiever.
