Shy Girls?

Being gifted is challenging for all kids, but particularly for gifted girls. Society is not as encouraging of giftedness in females as it is in males, studies have proven time and time again.

We need resources to help our girls reach their potential. I love Dr. Sylvia Rimm because she does exactly that! I have led several studies of her book See Jane Win for Girls and have seen how it has helped young gifted girls grow.

I wanted to share this article with you today. If you have a gifted girl who is shy or sometimes fearful, Dr. Rimm has some great advice to share with you.
