I’m so used to people asking me questions, in fact on Mondays for members of our FREE Let’s Talk 2e! Membership Community, members receive an email containing anonymous questions with detailed answers.

But a couple of weeks ago, I decided to be the one to ASK a question. I posted to #HoagiesGiftedDiscussion Group the following question: “Anyone have a great coding camp for an 11 year old?” I received awesome answers and since all in-person camps are cancelled, I’m sharing what I learned with you here. Feel free to comment and add your favorite online camp – coding or otherwise!

Remember to help your child manage their screen time. With so much online our gifted and 2e kids may experience sleep disruption and emotion dysregulation from the immense amount of time they are spending on screens. I recommend chunking the day – start the day with outside time and exercise and spend 3-4 hours max on screens in the afternoon (or switch the day and end with exercise).

Keep cool and remember when there are technology glitches – and there will be – it’s okay. Learning flexibility increases our kids’ resilience!

Happy Summer Everyone!
