“We read to know we’re not alone.” — William Nicholson
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” — George Santayana
Why do you read? To learn? To understand? To relate?
If you’re touched by giftedness, one reason you probably read is, indeed, to know you’re not alone…
…in the middle of the night when you’ve put your sleepwalking child to bed for the third time or sat next to her during yet another night terror.
…in the midst of your child’s meltdown staged in the grocery store aisle drawing stares from fellow shoppers.
…across the table from the teacher who just doesn’t understand this complex little child.
And you read to understand…
…why this child simply MUST have sheets tucked in just so before being able to sleep.
…how to answer that question that would make Albert Einstein do a double take.
…where to find help for a parent dealing with the same emotional intensities as your child.
That’s why we’re here. To help you connect to quality, on-topic content that you can relate to and learn from (and laugh with now and then).
