One thought on “Should We Push In or Lean In?

  1. I’ve always found it interesting that no matter where in the world we discuss gifted children and their education, we express similar experiences. That in and of itself is a powerful testament to the existence of these children and their needs.

    I appreciated the sentiments of raising gifted children to become self-advocates as their own words often carry much more weight in their defense. Leaning in can be a hard sell when you hit a brick wall in response, but the idea of seeking out kindred spirits can change everything and revitalize advocacy everywhere.

    Thanks for this excellent post!
