For children who are gifted or twice exceptional, the relationship between stress, performance, and mental health is complicated.  Developmental terms like “normal,” “optimal,” and “healthy” must be carefully examined and navigated. In this presentation, psychotherapist Nancy Lee will offer information, skills, and strategies that parents can use to enhance their children’s wellbeing.  Explore what it takes to raise a skillful child, the importance of social and emotional health, as well as the challenges that come with parenting gifted and twice exceptional children.
