Raising Poppies Facebook Group
“Parents of gifted and twice-exceptional children often feel isolated, alone, and like others just don’t get them or their kids. We do. We get it. And we’re right there in the trenches with you, raising our own poppies, hoping we’re getting it right. This is the group you’ve always needed. Grab a cup of coffee, some chocolate, and bring your questions, concerns, and successes — bragging about your kids is encouraged. We can’t guarantee that others will ever ‘get’ what it’s like to raise a kiddo like yours, but we can guarantee that you’ll find support and encouragement right here.”

“At GT World, we strive to provide a warm, comfortable, yet challenging environment in which to explore intellectual giftedness and the issues which surround it. These include parenting and advocating for our children, teaching them how to advocate for themselves, the experience of growing up gifted, obtaining an appropriate education, helping gifted kids with learning disabilities, and the wide range of other issues which tend to be flavored strongly by the our own and our children’s “difference”. To this end, we provide a number of ways for community members to get together.
