When I did my masters in teaching, I did a lot of study on gifted children, which included working with them. If you do have a gifted child, you truly will have an enriched parenting experience - believe me! They can have some fantastic conversations
I just wanted to mention, just because you have a child who does very well academically, doesn't mean they are gifted. While gifted kids can pick up language faster than others, they aren't always "smarter" or A+ students. Some can actually can do quite poorly in IQ tests. The truly gifted kids are the kids who are always thinking outside the square, asking unique questions, coming up with analogies to describe things etc.
Have a look at this government website for some ideas & information: http://www.education.vic.gov.au/chil...dchildren.aspx
