The Gifted Parenting Journey

release date: Sep 15, 2022
The Gifted Parenting Journey
In "The Gifted Parenting Journey: A Guide to Self-discovery and Support for Families of Gifted Children," clinical psychologist and parent Dr. Gail Post addresses the needs and emotional life of parents of gifted children. Gifted children can be overwhelming; parents must navigate a maze of heightened intensity, asynchronous development, and astonishing intellectual abilities. These challenges and the emotions they evoke are not always easy to discuss with friends or professionals unfamiliar with giftedness. Parents of gifted children often struggle in relative silence, reluctant to voice their concerns. Most books on raising gifted children focus on the child, paying little attention to the parent''s unique experience. This book will guide parents along their gifted parenting journey, exploring what they might worry about and feel- the dread, envy, and regret. How they can weather and even thrive despite roadblocks to their child''s education, criticism from others based on stereotypes, and their own self-doubts. Understanding their thoughts and feelings - and distinguishing these emotions from what their child needs - is key to making informed parenting decisions. "The Gifted Parenting Journey" will recommend how to find the guidance and support parents need, with focus on self-awareness. Throughout this book, parents will be invited to discover more about their deeper emotions and motivations, what influences their attitudes and expectations, and how certain reactions are elicited in response to the gifted experience. Readers will be prompted to explore questions that should increase self-awareness, and are offered both practical tools for managing their emotions and guidelines for improving their parenting skills. Dr. Post provides the latest research, clinical insight based on decades of experience as a psychologist, and vignettes. Findings from a recent online survey of 428 parents of gifted children, initiated for the purpose of this book, explore what other parents want readers to know. While this book is specifically geared toward parents of the gifted, it also offers guidance for anyone interested in understanding gifted children and their families: grandparents, extended family, caregivers, teachers, and other professionals. The guidance, support, and increased self-awareness acquired through this book should enhance parents'' well-being and confidence along their gifted parenting journey.

This book explores how religious families draw on their spiritual beliefs, religious practices, and faith communities to help them strengthen their marital relationships and their parenting. Using in-depth interviews from eight religious groups - Asian American Christian; Black Christian; Catholic and Orthodox Christian; Evangelical Christian; Jewish; Latter-day Saint; Mainline Protestant; and Muslim - the book uses the interviewees'' own words to show how their religion impacts their lives and influences their relationships. The book also includes an introductory chapter which describes the study and the sample; a conceptual chapter which places the empirical chapters in theoretical context in sociological study of religious families; and a concluding chapter which describes how the editors and authors developed respect and admiration for religious cultures other than their own. Drawing on such a diverse group of religions in America, this book will be of interest to those studying individual religious groups, as well as wider ecumenism and inter-religious dialogue. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Marriage and Family Review.

Emergence of a new type of family?

All Things New

release date: May 01, 2021
All Things New
It''s time to break the cycle. Not every family is the perfect model of Catholic family life. Some of us approach parenting still wounded by childhood experiences that were less than ideal. When we start our own families, at best we feel a bit unprepared, and at worst we feel paralyzed with fear that we will repeat our parents'' dysfunctional, abusive behaviors. In All Things New, Erin McCole Cupp draws on her own and others'' experiences to discuss how to develop a joyful family life when our own experience of being parented was damaging. Erin wrote this book for moms and dads who want to parent better than they themselves were parented. Drawing on the Holy Family as the model of family life, and distilling practical lessons from the Two Greatest Commandments and the Beatitudes, All Things New shows readers that, while change isn''t easy, God has given us all the ingredients we need to create a holy, joyful family.

Parenting for a Digital Future

release date: Jan 01, 2020
Parenting for a Digital Future
"In the decades it takes to bring up a child, parents face challenges that are both helped and hindered by the fact that they are living through a period of unprecedented digital innovation. Drawing on extensive research with diverse parents, this book reveals how digital technologies give personal and political parenting struggles a distinctive character, as parents determine how to forge new territory with little precedent, or support. The book reveals the pincer movement of parenting in late modernity. Parents are both more burdened with responsibilities and charged with respecting the agency of their child-leaving much to negotiate in today''s "democratic" families. The book charts how parents now often enact authority and values through digital technologies-as "screen time," games, or social media become ways of both being together and setting boundaries. The authors show how digital technologies introduce both valued opportunities and new sources of risk. To light their way, parents comb through the hazy memories of their own childhoods and look toward varied imagined futures. This results in deeply diverse parenting in the present, as parents move between embracing, resisting, or balancing the role of technology in their own and their children''s lives. This book moves beyond the panicky headlines to offer a deeply researched exploration of what it means to parent in a period of significant social and technological change. Drawing on qualitative and quantitative research in the United Kingdom, the book offers conclusions and insights relevant to parents, policymakers, educators, and researchers everywhere"--
