"Understanding Giftedness" - a video explaining the social and emotional components of parenting a gifted child. Extremely helpful in understanding the underlying reasons for puzzling behaviors in your gifted child. Clinical examples are used to get to a deeper understanding of how the two fundamental theories of Overexcitabilities and Asynchronous Development drive behaviors in gifted individuals. This video should be watched first as it includes "the basics" of understanding giftedness.
