Ms. Rosner's older son falls into the category of "gifted," a trait which has its own special needs. Left unnurtured, gifted children slip through our educational system without ever realizing their potential. Here are a few recommended links, for both gifted children and the gifted adults children eventually become:

A great site for parents of gifted children, GT World also boasts a wonderful mailing list for gifted adults.

Another useful site for parents and educators of gifted children. This site has many links to articles and other helpful sites.

Talent Development Resources
This site provides links to a host of articles on many aspects of giftedness.


Ms. Rosner's curiosity about her family's past has turned her into a part-time genealogist. Each new page of information adds a piece to the family puzzle, and has given her not only a great deal of personal satisfaction, but also a family history to pass down to her children. Following are a few links that might help you connect to your ancestors:
