Emotional Intensity in Gifted Students: Helping Kids Cope with Explosive Feelings by Christine Fonseca
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
There were a couple of sections of this book that I found interesting and/or useful. The conversational tone annoyed me, a more professional or informational tone would have been better. The redundancy got a bit old. The model conversations could be helpful if a parent can out-talk their gifted student.
I didn't think the book did a good job of defining "giftedness" to begin with. It was helpful to see some of the behaviors described and to consider some of the reasons for those behaviors.
I will admit to "in depth skimming" much of the book. I don't like the pop-psychology, situational responses or the generalizations based on an unspecified sample size.
