Real Stories From Parents of Bright & Quirky Kids
Who Decided to Join the IdeaLab Parent Learning Community
“I am so grateful, it was meant to be that I found you guys that day!”
IdeaLab member Sarah shares, “Things have changed a lot…I was really thinking about where we were and how much we’ve learned as a family from the beginning of discovering [IdeaLab] until now, it’s pretty profound….I feel empowered.”
“Trust what Bright & Quirky is saying when they tell you what they can accomplish.”
IdeaLab member Dan shares, “Can it get better? Absolutely, unequivocally. Yes, and I’m witness to some of the parents who were just pulling their hair out and in tears, some of whom I've seen in community, in the Facebook group and in conversations much like this. Night and day difference.”
"My child is so much happier. The household is so much happier. The IdeaLab has been invaluable."
IdeaLab member Tereza shares, "I became a member of the IdeaLab and suddenly all kinds of light bulb moments happened...Being a member, I got the confidence to pull my child from public school. We found another school that was a goldmine."
"[IdeaLab] changed everything!"
IdeaLab member Emon shares, "Before we started Bright & Quirky, I had no idea where my now 17-year-old was going to land. But now he is a senior and he is doing dual enrollment. He’s about to start Junior College… he’s ready. And we didn’t see that before.”
“I see my child very happy, his eyes are bright again.”
IdeaLab member Veronica shares, “We were able to lower his anxiety meds. I see that he is actually learning at school, not just surviving school. A treasure about Bright & Quirky is being able to have a community that you can relate to, it can be a very lonely path…we share a common language and understand each other and what we are going through.”
"The IdeaLab helped us cut to the chase. I now know what I'm talking about in IEP meetings."
IdeaLab member Robin said, "I spent maybe a dozen years trying to figure out what to do with my kid. All we heard about were the challenges. What I realized since joining the IdeaLab is 'gifted' is a big thing. I wonder how life would be if I knew all this stuff 7-8 years ago. I've learned so much and my attitude has changed."
"I feel so lucky to be a part of this amazing group. I turned 180 degrees as a parent through the last year."
Marcy, one of the founding members of the IdeaLab, says, "People get it and they're there for me. I want to give back more than I'm getting."
"This community has been a game changer for us!"
Tori, an IdeaLab member of almost a year, shared, "The monthly Q&A's and expert interviews are priceless and I loved the (quick-start) course! Having a different lens has really helped."
