Having buy-in from everyone in the family is essential to making your space a happier place to be in. As we all know, trying to get our profoundly gifted kids to do something they don’t want to do is an uphill battle. If you haven’t already done so, consider sitting down with them and explaining how you want to make this the best place for them to be right now. Share with them that you value them for the special role they have in your family. Ask them for their help. Would they be willing to step up right now when their family needs their help? By showing them that they can have a meaningful and necessary contribution to making this work for your family, they may be more empowered to give you a resounding, “YES!”
