It’s been a great year, full of kids activities, recipes, and tips for parenting your gifted and intense children. Inspired by a few of my favorite parenting writers, I reflected back on the five most popular parenting posts here on RLL.

Top 5 Posts About Parenting Gifted and Intense Children


These are the posts that were viewed, shared, and discussed the most – here and on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Thank you for engaging with me and offering your perspectives. I’ve enjoyed our conversations, and look forward to many more in the coming year.

There’s a definite theme to these popular posts – many of you are here to read about gifted and intense children. You might be looking for support. Or answers. Or maybe you just want to know that you’re not alone.

Rest assured… you’re not alone.

Parenting Intense Children


Parenting gifted and/or intense children is a different ballgame than parenting typical children. It’s neither good nor bad…it’s just different. And those well-meaning parents offering you advice or telling you what works with their kids just don’t understand.

And it’s okay. We can get through this together while loving on those special children God gave us. By meeting them where they are and moving them forward. By igniting a love of learning and discovery in them – every day.
