Nurturing Your Child’s True Potential

"My kid is smart, but..."

It takes more than school smarts to create a fulfilling life. In fact, many bright children face special challenges:

- Some are driven by perfectionism
- Some are afraid of effort, because they're used to instant success
- Some routinely butt heads with authority figures
- Some struggle to get along with their peers
- Some are outwardly successful but just don't feel good about themselves
