As an author of books for parents (helping them to teach their children how to deal with emotions, see above), a 20-year single parent of highly intuitive children, and a long-term Marriage Counselor, I find Dr. Goode's book a breath of fresh air. By helping parents look at the "type" of intuitive abilities their child has, and the "type" of parent they are, she helps parents weave their own personal style together with the personal style of their child, making parenting altogether easier. In addition, Dr. Goode is addressing the "new type" of child coming to the earth now, the Intuitive (Indigo, Crystal, etc.) Child, who presents special challenges to parents who are not themselves Intuitive, and/or who learned to parent in ways that are ineffective with the child they now are raising. Dr. Goode is getting parents up to speed for what they REALLY face with children of exceptional ability, perceptiveness, sensitivity and sense of mission. Thank you, Dr. Goode!
Secondly, the author mentions that several studies have concluded that vaccines cause autism, and that is why she delayed many of her children's vaccines. I am also a mom who intuitively delayed some of my children's vaccines. And I have a daughter with Asperger's Syndrome, which is on the Autism Spectrum. Yet I would never say with absolute conviction that studies have proven this link. I strongly suspect environmental toxins play a role, but so do genetics. Since my daughter's diagnosis, we've recognized Asperger traits in my husband and in his mother. I thought I did everything right, including delaying vaccines. Did I not delay my daughter's vaccines enough? More than likely, my daughter's genes and other environmental factors played a role---research needs to focus on what else has caused the explosion of Autism Spectrum Disorders. Reading Goode's unsound assertion on vaccines angers me, because she does not elaborate, only states it as fact.
The third thing that caught my eye is the author's talk of her health scare with skin cancer and her statement that her malignancy was "proven" to have been caused by environmental toxins. How can that be? What doctor would say that? Goode never explains. Again, she just states it as a fact. I am a two time cancer survivor, including having a melanoma, which I thankfully caught at it's earliest stages (I was saved by my intuition when I didn't like a mole I saw!). Was it caused by toxins, or did I simply get too much sun exposure? We just don't know. There is no way to say one thing caused it. Saying something with absolute conviction, especially with scientifically and biologically complicated things like autism and cancer, is at best irresponsible, at worst, downright dangerous.
Now, I haven't continued reading, but my "intuition" is telling me that I won't give the rest of the book much credence based on those three things that jumped out at me with 2-3 minutes of flipping through the book. I am not a skeptic to things alternative. Quite the opposite. I am a Empath with Claircognitive and Clairsentient abilities. My young son shows empathic abilities. I bought this book hoping for some practical guidance, not unsound information. I also bought this book based on the reviews--unfortunately, many seem to be planted. After my disappointment with the book, I clicked on all of the reviewers' review history, and suspiciously, many only reviewed this book. How dishonest. I feel duped, and the author has insulted my intelligence. Still, to be fair, I will read this book and give it a chance, and I will update my review after I do so.
