    Fonseca, a school psychologist and parenting coach, helps parents and teachers understand why gifted children have extreme emotions and how to teach them to deal with these emotions. She discusses the assumptions people make about giftedness, the characteristics of being gifted and problems created by these traits, the emotional development and intense nature of gifted children, problems they face and strategies to teach them to cope, issues faced by those who also have learning disabilities or mental illness, how to use coaching techniques, and how to collaborate with schools and mental health professionals. She uses case studies, dialogues, and role playing techniques to show how to deal with explosion, bullying, peer pressure, phobias, perfectionism, underperformance in school, and social anxiety.
