Books for Developing Self-Awareness and Mindfulness in Young Gifted Children
As adults, we are often mesmerized by how much gifted children can learn and how much they already know—so much so that we sometimes focus almost exclusively on these children’s cognitive development, leaving little time and thought to the development of their self-awareness.
At Royal Fireworks, we want to nurture the whole child. Intellectual challenge and development are important, but so is the development of children’s personal and emotional self-awareness. Gifted children are more than just exceptionally bright; they are often keenly sensitive and intuitive, and they are generally eager to understand themselves at a level that far exceeds that of their age peers. Giving them resources to facilitate that understanding and the tools to help them moderate their often-intense emotions and reactions can help them to become happier, more well-adjusted, and more socially adept, which can transform both how they see the world and how the world sees them.
