In this video, parents talk about day-to-day life with a child who has an active mind and thirst for learning. They talk about balancing the needs of a gifted child with others in the family, dealing with perfectionism and trying to answer life’s big questions at an early age. Parents often say what they want most is for their child to fit in, make good relationships and be happy.
