Writing Your Own Script is an exception. From the beginning, the authors make it clear that parents are here to facilitate the dreams and aspirations of their children; not the fulfillment of their own.
As much as we want to see our children succeed, we cannot live their lives for them. They will make mistakes. They may experience failure. Your job is to be available as a safety net, but not to protect them from life experiences.
Corin and Mika are both parents. They write from both personal experience and professional perspective. Their sage advice is clear and concise. It is practical. For many, it will be indispensable. Their book covers the gamut of the gifted experience from simply defining giftedness to overexcitabilities and twice-exceptionality.
I wish I would have had access to a book like this when my own children were younger. Life would have been so much easier. It’s no fun when you don’t understand why your child isn’t playing on the playground with all the other kids or understanding that there’s a huge difference between a tantrum and a meltdown. I read and review many books on gifted parenting. This book is hands down … a winner.
I received a copy of the book in relation to another project; not in exchange for a review. After reading it, I felt compelled to write a review. Yes; it's that good.
It’s remarkable that in the Western world, one in which independence is prized above all else, that parents would need to be encourage to think divergently. But we do. When a child diverges so far from the norm that he or she throws the logic of cultural norms into question, parents can find themselves wanting to reinforce standards that are outdated or simply inappropriate. That increases tension, friction, and makes parenting (unnecessarily) more difficult.
"Writing Your Own Script," with its practical, no-nonsense advice and supportive tone, offers parents the same kind of support and challenge that [gifted and twice-exceptional] kids need. While it may be tempting to see this book as being geared for parents of elementary age children exclusively, it has application until the teen years. For individuals wanting to dig more deeply into individual topics, a substantial bibliography and footnotes are included. Clocking in at under 90 pages—and available via e-readers, it’s a quick read, too; the kind of thing that you can read on the fly in the parking lot or in brief snippets before bed time.
When you read this book, you’re not only learning about socialization as it relates to gifted/2e kids; you have a chance to learn about the inner and outer world of gifted/2e kids in a deep and profound way that is tailored to parents. I often hear from parents who want resources that go beyond the basics of being gifted/2e. Here it is!
While reading this book, I enjoyed fresh connections amongst different facets of giftedness. Particularly striking was how a caregiver’s attitude and history can help or hinder a child as they develop their own social abilities. This is critical!
Corin and Mika urge you to be honest with yourself about the reality of your child and the world they are living in. And they don’t stop there. They also provide you with a helpful and compassionate framework so you can assure yourself that you are.
You’ll learn about the stages of human social development and how the asynchronous nature of these children can create unforeseen complications for your family. And you’ll receive guidance on how to help your child draw upon their strengths to make meaningful connections with peers.
