Gifted boys who are frustrated by a prevailing spirit of competition in academics, sports, and peer relationships may find an expressive outlet in writing that will benefit their social and emotional well-being along with positive outcomes for academic writing, and critical and independent thinking skills. Not Just Board Games Anymore * Act out stories your child wrote with family or friends. * Play word games together like Scattegories, Scrabble, Catchphrase, or Boggle. * Make up a new board game and write out the rules and creative background information for the game. * Create a trading card game, like Pokmon or Dungeons and Dragons, and make up the rules and playing cards with drawings on the front and descriptions on the back. * Add snacks-food always makes things better.
