SMPGs: The Heart of SENG – Introducing SENG Online Parent Support Groups!


by Molly Isaacs-McLeod
Greetings! I have tremendous shoes to fill (thank you Lori Comallie-Caplan!) as the new Chair of the SENG Model Parent Group (SMPG) Committee. While SENG offers many wonderful programs and resources, the SMPG is the heart of SENG, and I am honored to be the Board champion for this program. 

I am very excited to introduce a program whose time has come, the SENG Online Parent Support Group. Each support group will meet once a week for eight weeks and will cover a number of the topics addressed in A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children, by Webb, et al. These groups are perfect for parents who have not found an SMPG within reasonable driving distance of their home or whose schedules will not allow for participating in an “IRL” (“in real life”) SMPG.  

Parents of gifted children can often be the best resource for other parents, with their “been there done that” and “am there now, I feel your pain” perspectives.

I invite each of you to make a promise to yourself in the coming year that will benefit you, your gifted child, and your family. Register for a SENG Online Parent Support Group or seek out and attend an SMPG near you. You will be glad you did!
