Dr. Jacqueline B. Sallade, a community blogger on the WITF online blogging page has written a short piece about one the Discipline Issues with Gifted Children, that is, avoiding it.
Dr. Sallade has an impressive resume that you can read about at Dr. Jacqueline B. Sallade, Community blogger… Just Click the Link… Here is the URL http://www.witf.org/witf-staff-login/author/dr-jacqueline-b-sallade-community-blogger
“Dr. Sallade is the only child of holocaust survivors from Eastern and Central Europe. She grew up in Philadelphia, Central PA, and New York City (her second home). She has been a psychologist since 1970, working with children and adults in wide variety of settings, including schools, hospitals, courts, private office, and prisons. She is also a columnist for “The Pennsylvania Psychologist” and a blogger on http://open.salon.com.”
WITF supplies programs and services for the central Pennsylvania communities. They cover 17 counties and broadcast from three radio stations. They have a news network, a regional magazine, a website, educational services (but I don’t know specifics), and media solutions. Whew! That’s a lot.
Discipline Issues with Gifted Children
“Gifted Children Need Help, Too”
“The child often creates, leads, or displays talent. However, there is no guarantee that the child adjusts to school, makes friends or shows emotional maturity. These children may wow people intellectually but need as much guidance, discipline and care …”
“… they need a chance to do things in which they are average or struggling, as well.”
“… everyone is unique and respected for his/her humanity.”
“… there is no guarantee that the child adjusts to school, makes friends or shows emotional maturity. These children may wow people intellectually but need as much guidance …”
I have discovered that gifted children can be easily bored or discouraged without adequate and appropriate stimulation. Add that issue to Discipline Issues with Gifted Children.
