I read Emotional Intensity when it came out last year and am excited about Christine's next one.
I met Christine last year at SCBWI and she opened my eyes. (not to mention she is funny and adorable.) She's a school psychologist and so so smart.
Emotional Intensity for the Gifted Child was her first book.This book helps parents and teachers understand why your gifted child is so
intense and helps them understand how to work through their emotions and frustrations.
It helped me see that all the questions and - what looks like defiance - and independence.
You can look inside the book to see if it is for you here.
Now, she has another one coming out: 101 Success Secrets for Gifted Children
101 Success Secrets for Gifted Kids: The Ultimate Handbook is a must-read for gifted kids ages 8 to 12 who want to find success in school and life. If you’re a gifted kid or you know gifted kids, you need the 101 awesome secrets, tips, and tricks included in this book!
Here is an excerpt to see if this book is for your child. I personally think some of the ideas and strategies ca work for any smart child so don't shut away because it says GIFTED. Besides, we ALL think our kids are GIFTED right? :)
