I was wondering if it is ok for gramdmas to post on this sight. If so I would like to share experiences and also to gain knowledge when I have them over for a visit. I spend a lot of quality time with these wonderful children either at their houses or mine.

Just as it is difficult for parents to find like peers to discuss their gifted children with I find it is even more difficult for us grandmas. Such is my experience.

Thanks, for letting me post this. Hoping to get some response.

      I usually read everything here but the grandchildren are now almost midway thru the teens, I haven't posted much -since I can't add direct experience or educational challenges. When I have, the other ... more
