Fish, Leigh Ann; Bailie, Patti Ensel – Parenting for High Potential, 2018
For many, childhood memories are of outdoor play: "baking" mud pies, building forts, climbing trees, playing tag at the park, and constructing sand castles at the beach.

Haydon, Kathryn P. – Parenting for High Potential, 2016
Sometimes it's not easy for highly creative children to "comply" with a regular curriculum, even at the preschool age. They are wired to explore, experiment, build, imagine, and create. If forced at a young age into a diet heavy on rote learning and directed work, they may struggle. It's not that these children can't do the work, it's…

Cramond, Bonnie – Parenting for High Potential, 2015
We teach our children manners, what to do in certain emergencies, and other life basics, but most of us do not intentionally teach our children about thinking strategies and creative problem solving.

The old saying, "life is a journey" may sound cliched, but the words are nevertheless true.
