“Because sometimes what you need most is the support of those around you.”
As the parent of a gifted child, each and every day is rewarding, challenging and at times extremely overwhelming. Your child’s emotional needs and understanding of the world around them are often different from their peers. As a result, we often feel isolated, lonely and unable to relate to other parents.
The Bangkok Parents of Exceptional Learners (BKKPEL) Support Group provides a comfortable environment where you can share stories, experiences and tips in a social setting with other parents just like you. Being well educated about gifted children will help enhance your ability to guide and support your child and become and develop into an even stronger role model.
This website is meant to serve as a catalog of information and support resources for parents of exceptional learners.
Our support group follows the SENG (Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted) Parent Group format, and offers parents of gifted children in Bangkok the chance to connect with other parents, share stories and tips, seek advice, find play-dates, partake in group activities, etc..
Our support group meets every other week and uses the following topics as a framework:
Identification and Characteristics of Gifted Children
Intensity and Perfectionism
Complexities of Successful Parenting
