What Is A SENG Model Parent Group (SMPG)? SENG Model Parent Groups (SMPGs) are structured to bring together 10-16 interested parents of gifted and talented children to discuss such topics as motivation, discipline, stress management, and peer relationships. The co-facilitators of the group, though they are knowledgeable about parenting and about educating gifted/talented children, do not attempt to give expert advice to families.
Instead their facilitation provides a nonjudgmental and nurturing atmosphere. The parents of high-ability children are themselves a rich resource for information, and participants get fresh ideas from other parents. The group discussions are also based around the book A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children, by James Webb. The book is included in the registration price.
