For the parent of an intensely gifted child (or for intensely gifted adults in general) finding a supportive community can seem like an impossible task. It’s a bit like an expedition into an uncertain wilderness. When a child is identified as gifted, many parents find themselves thrown into in unexplored territory without so much as a guide for the trip. Caitlin Fitzpatrick Curley found herself in that spot when her child entered Kindergarten. It was then that she became an unlikely homeschooler, and found she could embrace her own intensity by founding an online community for Homeschool parents. 

 

 In this week’s episode of Embracing Intensity, Aurora and Cait discuss challenges to overcome and triumphs to be had as the parents of Gifted children. As an Excitable woman herself, Cait knew that she could not successfully tackle the task on her own. Cait shares her journey as a homeschooling mother, and how that led her to create the Raising Poppies online community for other parents just like her. Listen to hear how the world is just a bit smaller than you might think! 

 

In this week’s episode:  

  • How did a school psychologist become a homeschooling mom, blogger, and podcaster? 
  • Learn how Cait holds herself up during times of stress and uncertainty. 
  • The dynamics of a school district, and finding an education plan that suits a gifted child. 
  • Can focusing on just the next 6 months make an impact on your family? 
  • Become a part of the Raising Poppies online community. 
  • Hear how a focus on transparency about the pros and hurdles of homeschooling has led so many people to connect with Cait’s online community.
