Kids Who See Ghosts and Raising Intuitive Children will open your understanding regarding children's natural intuitive abilities, and will let you know many ways to support the children in understanding and valuing themselves and who they are. There are many specifics in each book so that you will be able to recognize a child who is, for example, a creative intuitive, or an emotional intuitive, or how to support a child who is seeing ghosts.
In my opinion, every parent and educator would do well to read these books, and to go on to honor, nurture and help children understand and embrace whatever is their own uniqueness.
Thank you, Caron Goode, and Tara Paterson, for writing these books! A welcome river of light to help open consciousness.........
Mary Austin Gilfoyle, parent and educator
Unfortunately, the book is primarily groupings of stories from various individuals who have the ability to see ghosts, spirits and other entities that the average person does not see. Initially the stories were a bit interesting, but after awhile, you feel you've got the gist and tire of further anecdotes. In addition, the interviewees for the stories all have conflicting ideas about what are seen, if they're all good, all bad, a mix of good and bad, how to protect yourself from the bad ones and open to the good ones, etc. This conflict of thought makes it very hard for a reader to discern the best way to handle the issue with kids.....Do you worry they'll be "taken over" by bad entities?? Do you just go with the idea that they're all good and meant to be guides? There isn't clear or cohesive enough commentary from the individuals interviewed on which to base a good decision on the subject. the author attempts to pull it all together though the introduction, commentary, and conclusion, but her efforts fall short and do not offer any real or practical advise on how to best address the issue with kids. Personally for me I also had a hard time with her story about a ghostly Monk and a cold shower in South America. Allegedly a Monk who killed many was afraid to pass on and prevented her from having a hot shower. She had a friend interpret the Spanish (Hmmm, how do you do that if it's an ancient dialect and the friend cannot see the ghost???) and helped him to move on by convincing him he wouldn't be punished for his deeds. As soon as this happened she had her nice hot shower. The story was hard for me to believe and detracted from her credibility.
In addition, the author makes frequent references to her other book about intuitive children in such a way that it seems she is pushing you to buy it. She might make a suggestion on how to do THIS or THAT in order to help your child, but then refer you to the other book for more information on how to make it happen rather than telling you how to do it in this text.
All in all I was disappointed in the book. I was truly hoping to glean something helpful, yet finished with the same feeling I get when watching a politically correct National Geographic special. The kind that superficially covers an arcane or esoteric subject so that you feel just as uninformed as before. The writing seemed a generic overview that did not offer the guidance that most folks reading this book likely seek.
Pass this one up.
