The new term of CTYI Saturday classes is about to start and we thought we’d take the opportunity to remind you that this can be a great opportunity for parents to get together. Particularly for those parents who have to travel significant distances, it is nice to have company while waiting for classes to end.
As many of you will have discovered, being the parent of a gifted child brings it’s own peculiar problems which can sometimes be difficult to discuss with other parents or teachers. Having the chance to chat to other parents who may have faced the same conundrums can be very helpful and reassuring. Sometimes, all that’s needed is to feel that you’re not alone and that your child is, indeed, relatively normal. And, let’s face it, sometimes a good vent or a rant to an understanding audience can make you feel so much better!
We are not in a position to organise coffee groups at every CTYI venue but we will help to facilitate these where possible. CTYI are also very helpful and supportive of these efforts. If you would be interested in taking part, check out our CTYI group page for further details of where there are groups and how to get involved.
