Hoagies' Blog Hop: Transitions

Transitions. Whether we are talking about the little transitions from the house to an event or school, from evening activities to bedtime, or big transitions from home to elementary school, from high school to college, from adult to parent, or from adult to senior in need of support... Gifted life is full of transitions.

Read all of this month's blogs, and learn more about different kinds of Gifted Transitions!

Don't miss our previous Blog Hops on related topics, including Acceleration and Acceleration, again , as well as Anxiety.

When should your gifted child start kindergarten? by Gail Post in Gifted Challenges
The monumental, tear-jerking transition from preschool to kindergarten seems (gulp) like as big
a milestone for parents as it is for kids. Our babies are growing up! And we want them to thrive,
embrace learning, and adapt to the social and maturational demands of this new chapter. How do
we know when and if they are ready for kindergarten - especially if they are gifted?...
Bridging the Gap: Help with Transitions by Heather in WonderSchooling
We travel a lot as a family. Whenever we fly, which may be eight times this year, visiting family in various parts of the globe, we go through security. Every airport security has the scanner or metal detector as part of the process, and, even though we know it's coming, and have done it many times before, it's still a big deal for one of my girls. We've been through this dozens of times. She knows what to expect, that one of us will be on one side, one on the other, and she "just" has to walk through. But still - without fail - she will need help. Sometimes she will be stressed enough that they allow us to carry her. Sometimes I can put my hand out and coax her through, but, different than her siblings, I can pretty much guarantee that she will need a little extra "something". That's how she's wired, and we make it through. It's a transition, and like all transitions, little or big, different kids will require different levels of support...
Transition from Mainstream Education to Gifted Education Programme (GEP)  by Elgarmummy
There are parents who simply want their children to get into the gifted stream, so they fork out money to send their children for training, so that the children could get into GEP. Unfortunately, their children may feel very stressed when they realise they are unable to cope with the rigours of the curriculum. Since being gifted usually means being in the top 2%, there will be some children who will not be selected. Perhaps they are asynchronous in different areas – some might be extremely strong in mathematics and science, the latter being not tested, but do not read sufficiently to have an extremely large vocabulary to qualify for the programme. Others might have topped their cohorts consistently, but they are just extremely bright, not gifted. Nevertheless, since the GEP students are selected for their English, Mathematics and General Ability, almost all should be able to cope with the curriculum...
Tips for Aging Well When You Have a Rainforest Mind (and Overexcitable Hair) by Paula Prober, Your Rainforest Mind
I am in my sixties. That sounds OLD to me. AARP. Medicare. Senior discounts. Golf. Geezerville.

But I don’t feel OLD. In fact, other than some possible hidden creeping potential decrepitude (!), I think 60-something is kind of fine. Pretty great, actually.

You, too, can have a pretty-great-actually time into your 60s and beyond. Here’s how:..
