Many very bright kids struggle emotionally and behaviorally. Understanding the impact of their brain development upon their emotions and behavior provides a foundation for understanding and helping bright, creative kids who struggle with emotional and behavioral challenges. Challenging behavior has traditionally been thought of as willful and goal oriented which has led to approaches that focus on motivating better behavior using reward and punishment programs. Recent research on kids who are very bright and struggle with learning and/or behavioral challenges suggests that their asynchronous development and unique abilities can contribute to a developmental lag in crucial thinking skills when it comes to things like problem solving, frustration tolerance and flexibility. This presentation provides conceptual background material for the workshop on Thinking Differently: Parenting Your Gifted, Sensitive, Challenging Child.
