[Book Review] Gifted, Bullied, Resilient: A book for every gifted adult

poprice:

There are so many great reviews incoming about my book, but this one, by Madeline Goodwin, is my current favorite.

When I was writing “Gifted, Bullied, Resilient,” I never dreamed that gifted kids, teens, and young adults would read it. And yet Madeline and others have done just that. In fact, at my talk during the SENG 2015 conference last week in Denver, one parent told me that her gradeschool-aged daughter read the prologue and slept soundly for the first time in a long while. As an author, that’s an amazing story. As a human, it’s downright humbling.

I hope you’ll take a moment to read what Madeline wrote over on her blog.

We first examined ‘why’ gifted kids are bullied. It was a general consensus that gifted kids are seen as ‘different’ and misunderstood. Pamela told us that the “reasons are as varied as individuals, but gifted kids are bullied for “difference” including social and intellectual variance.” Lisa Lauffer of Artisan of Creative Miracles pointed out that “If they’ve skipped a grade, they’re younger…
