How to Bring Up a Gifted Child…

Here’s what ya gotta do if you want a gifted child:

Seriously, folks – while I admit there are some freaky resemblances to reality in this video, I WOULD use caution in following this approach!  We are holding off on the Latin until Esmé's 5th birthday, for instance... :)

You can read more about what I have to say on giftedness over at The Homeschool Village.

If you are in the Portland, Oregon area – and are new to homeschooling your baby – er, preschooler – I’ve got a PSA for you…  You can attend the Oregon Christian Home Education Conference in Portland (June 24 & 25) for free!  We did it last year, and it is very much worth it.  Here are the requirements:
To attend for free: you must pre-register by June 15, your oldest child must be under 6 years of age (his or her 6th birthday must be after June 25, 2011), and this must be your first OCEANetwork Conference. Register online at OregonHomeschoolConference.com. There is no child care available. If you choose to bring your children, the registration fee is $10 each for children ages 3-5. Babies & Toddlers (0-2) are free.
For more details on this conference see www.OregonHomeschoolConference.com.
