Has your child exhibited some talent or above average ability? Is she really smart? Does he have great aptitude in sports?
Have you considered testing your child for giftedness? What test would be the best one? What are the signs of giftedness or characteristics of giftedness?
As a parent of a budding academic and athletic daughter, I have wrestled with these same questions. I have wondered if my child is gifted. Or maybe she is talented. What is the difference?
So I began a quest to discover if my child is gifted and what I should be doing about it.
Along the way, I realized that there are many definitions of giftedness. Some may even surprise you. And I wondered what the Bible says about gifted children. Does it say anything about them? Indeed, it does!
A big question I had was:
The laws for homeschooling are different in each state in the USA (and other countries handle it differently, too). So I wanted to know the laws that applied. What were my choices in terms of curriculum, courses, testing, etc? Should I start her out in regular Kindergarten or consider a Montessori school? What about unschooling, Charlotte Mason, Mary Pride, Thomas Jefferson Education, or some other method of homeschooling?
I found the information I needed to make wise decisions for my daughter. I have other friends who also had similar questions. I realized that it is common to wonder if your child is gifted. So I compiled the data I found into a great ebook.
This ebook will walk you through defining giftedness, help you to know what you can do about homeschooling, and show you two full letter-size pages of resources with internet links.
One of my favorite quotes is by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.: “Man’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.” That’s how you’ll feel after reading this ebook!
When I first learned that Faithe was putting together an ebook on homeschooling gifted children from a Christian perspective, I was very excited about the prospect. There are lots of resources out there for parents of gifted children, and tons more for homeschooling parents. It’s even fairly easy to find help for homeschooling gifted children.
|But Faithe’s vision was for something far greater than any I’ve come across, even among traditional books. And she has accomplished it in this humble ebook.
Not content to accept the world’s definition of “gifted,” she went to Scriptures to see God’s perspective on these children He’s created. And she found that He has a great deal to say about the gifting He pours out on His people. Drawing from Paul’s letters, character sketches from the Old and New Testaments, and the Proverbs, Faithe has captured the true essence of what we’re in for as parents when we attempt to train up our children in light of their giftedness.
This is a great resource to get you started on the road to recognizing the gifts and special bent of each of your children, and training them at home in the fear and admonition of the Lord.
