Challenging students at home

I have many parents who want to know how to continue "challenging students at home" away from school. Any suggestions?

Suggest this site to the parents, lots of information and ideas. www.hoagiesgifted.org

I always suggest the "free" stuff in and around the area, especially museums. Parents are always surprised when I tell them that the local art museums are free except for any special traveling exhibits. Also, if you have a botanical garden, those are usually free or have a very small fee. We also have a couple of aviation museums around here that are free, a sewing machine museum... get online and see what's available in your area.

my poor mother, back in the 70's and 80's, was endlessly running me back and forth to the library for books. Also... there was this great science show called Mr. Wizard, and I was always doing his science experiments, so she would run me to the grocery store to get supplies I needed. I was constantly challenging myself... including blowing things up in the kitchen. One of my finer moments was blowing up a huge glass vase trying to "make rain" indoors. I was always challenging myself... and my mom's sanity. I don't think she has recovered yet from raising 2 gifted children.

My mom had a problem with me being TOO self-motivated . I think she would have enjoyed it if I would have been a little more laid back. She has said a few times that she would have liked kids that were a little LESS gifted. My poor mom!
