Parenting Gifted and Talented Children: An Overview and Some Practical Considerations for Hong Kong Chinese Parents
David W. CHAN（陳維鄂）
Relevant retrospective and prospective studies on parenting gifted and talented children as well as studies on Chinese parenting are briefly reviewed to provide a basis for suggesting guidelines for recommended parenting practices for Chinese parents in Hong Kong. The PARENT approach has been developed to provide six guiding principles embodied in the acronym PARENT, which stands for Positive parenting, Authoritative style, Role modeling, Expectations with support and challenge, Need satisfaction in social-emotional development, and Talent development in specific domains. The role of parent support groups in fostering collaboration between parents and school is also discussed.
