There are so many curricular choices when it comes to homeschooling your gifted kids. How do you know what the most important thing you need for homeschooling your gifted child is?

It can feel overwhelming and impossible to navigate, and can leave a mom feeling discouraged before she even begins. And, unfortunately there’s no perfect answer. Every gifted kid – even those in the same family – is completely different than the next.

They can be:

  • empathetic
  • unsympathetic
  • eager to learn
  • resistant to learn
  • hands-on
  • bookish
  • charismatic
  • shy

So, what do I think the most important thing you need for homeschooling your gifted child is?
