Many GO Parents are in rural communities or smaller cities, a long way from the nearest face-to-face opportunity to network with other parents of gifted children.
There are many online resources to support parents of gifted kids:
New Zealand Centre of Gifted Education (NZCGE) Facebook page.
New Zealand Association for Gifted Children (NZAGC) Forum
(Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted) has just published a free e-book called
The Joy and the Challenge: Parenting Gifted Children
Gifted Awareness Week Blog Tours
, which include many articles written for or by parents of gifted children.

Here is a handy page
if this sounds familiar!
Mary St George, former GO Teacher, has also set up a
Facebook group on giftedness
. This includes people beyond the GO community, but parents, grandparents, teachers and other adult supporters of GO children are particularly welcome to join.
