Guest Writer:  In previous newsletters, we’ve been honored to have Dr. Audrey Kteily, who is a parent and psychologist here in Coppell write some articles. In this month’s edition, Dr. Kteily will continue to  share her personal experience and professional views on parenting a gifted child. This month she shares her article Parenting a Gifted Child.
