This is a qualitative study of the home life of two genius boys who have done unusual achievements. It uses the approach of grounded theory in order to learn what concepts or themes may emerge from the environmental circumstances of their family that might help explain the production of giftedness in the children. The study examines the explanations of all family members about the practices of this home. Using the grounded theory method, after collecting data about the family, the author attempts to identify themes and concepts in this family that may be connected to the production of gifted children generally. Numerous nurture related themes that may be connected to the production of giftedness in children were identified and suggestion for further study of these themes was made.
