For your kind welcome. It is good to know I can post here on grandmotherly issues. I have four children and five grandchildren. The gc range from 13 yrs. to three weeks old. All very gifted, sensitive and of course intense. Although the grandchildren have never been tested a grandma just knows.

Back in my parenting days I was a strong advocate for our gifted children. Having jumped the hoops of numerous testing, countless teacher-principal-phyc- parent meetings, nights and hours and hours of extensive studying up on gifted issues there is still more to learn. I must add that a large portion of my learning and knowledge came directing from the parents who were just wonderful, very similar to this group sharing knowledge and experiances.

These parents that were around back then may very well be grandparents themselves by now or could be in the near future. Grandparents play an important role in their gc's lives. Grandparents like their bragging moments, as well. But we are sort of out in left field there. sigh. Maybe I can throw in a few here now and then. lol

Again thank you!
