Seminar: How to Raise A Gifted Child [With Giveaway]

Are gifted children God given or something parents can nurture? I don't have the answers, but I am happy to share an upcoming parenting seminar by Pamela Lim. In a frank and insightful session, she will help parents discover the importance of raising their child to be gifted. I don't think there's much of a tiger parenting in here, but that every child has a potential that can be accelerated to perform better than the norm.

 

 

Key topics included on How to Raise A Gifted Child are:

- Strategies to unleash your child’s capabilities;
- Tips to engage children to learn, and achieve beyond their peers;
- How to become lifelong partners in your children's learning journey;
- How parents should approach the concept of giftedness in the context of academic results and non-academic prowess

An event for parents who want to raise happy and gifted children with practical and useful tips and strategies for real change.

About Pamela Lim
Pamela is a very well-known gifted educator, who was also an award winning entrepreneur and CEO. Through her strategies, she managed to put four of her five children into universities before they reached 14, and in four different disciplines.  Her fourth child won a place at one of the world's top varsities at 12 while her youngest was taking pre-university courses at the age of 10. Her journey poses many challenges with her children variously diagnosed with autism, executive function disorder and existential depression. One was even suspended from school for almost two years for misbehaviour.

She believes in giving children maximum free time and minimal stress. From seven to twelve years old, her task was to discover their passion and start to look for programs that feed that passion. This is important to a parent because the earlier a child understands himself or herself, the easier it is for the parent to guide the child.

This half day session could change the course of your child’s lifetime. I have no insight to what we'll be expecting, but with an open mind we are pretty excited to sit in for a session. After all, parenting is all about learning and sharing experiences.

This session is suited for parents with primary school going children who are aged 7 and above. Parents of children aged 7 months to 6 can sign up here for a different session on Is My Toddler Gifted?
