Monday, February 22, 2016, 7:00 – 8:00 pm (Eastern Time)

PARENTING FOR ACHIEVEMENT  – with SALLY KRISEL, Ed.D.

About the program:  Why do some gifted children tackle school eagerly and succeed academically while others are reluctant scholars, often disinterested and sometimes defiant? In this session Dr. Krisel will examine key traits of high-achieving gifted students and a number of parenting practices that promote an achievement orientation.
