In February 2015, I will have another article published in the Illinois Association for Gifted Children Journal 2015 titled, “Creating a Writing Community: Fostering Multiculturalism in the Gifted High School Creative Writing Classroom.”
Previously, I had an article published in the IAGC Journal 2013 titled, “”Go Forth, Children and Make Music! Tips for Parents of Gifted and Talented Children in Music.”
If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children.
Here is a fantastic piece on taking the time to listen and value our children’s dreams and goals…it is so important, now more than ever…thank you, Laura Lamere for this great post!
It’s not always easy to be supportive.
We are cranky in the morning, afternoon, or evening.
We see the chores that need to be done, appointments that need to be made,
And we focus on what hasn’t been done.
We are hungry, thirsty, tired.
We feel overwhelmed, frustrated and unloved.
We are only human.
But we are also parents.
We need to make time for our children’s dreams.
We need to give support when support is not easy to give.
Being supportive begins with listening.
When our children express interest in the arts, they are sharing a vulnerable side that takes courage to show us.
Find the courage to support them.
