If you are a parent/caregiver or a grandparent, here is a special invitation for you to join us for a day to learn from WATG experts about key themes in raising and supporting your gifted child(ren)!
In the morning, you can participate in a SENG (Supporting the Emotional Needs of Gifted) workshop facilitated by Jackie and Dal Drummer, members of the WATG Board.
Here is more information about the workshop: Parenting gifted kids can be both a joy and a challenge. Sometimes gifted children and their parents/caregivers feel alone as they navigate life’s ups and downs. This session, “Parent to Parent: Sharing Your Wisdom” is a chance for parents to share their parenting experience and advice, to give and receive comfort, and to discover resources that will help them on their journey. It will be facilitated by Dal and Jackie Drummer, who are SENG (Supporting the Emotional Needs of Gifted) national trainers and facilitators. Together they have over 100 years of teaching, parenting, and grand parenting, and have facilitated numerous groups nationally. Come to learn, to share, and to gain tools to help you as you grow along with your child. Many parents and caregivers report that this workshop has given them additional insight, sensitivity, and confidence.
After this session, join us for lunch (location to be announced) for an opportunity to get to know other parent members. Lunch is on your own; however, we will suggest a meeting space for all interested parents to network.
In the afternoon, we will have a Parent Member Unconference. In an Unconference, participants may choose mini-workshops that most interest them. Here you can learn from WATG experts about various topics, including:
Parent members will leave with resources related to these topics for further exploration. We will also share more information about an upcoming opportunity to participate in an online parent book club.
