Help with future kid.

My wife is pregnant. So how would I go about teaching them from the age of zero and up on how to be a psion?

Well, when you can figure out what the age of zero is give me a call j/k

In my opinion, I think the child should develop some sort of ability just from being around your energy so long, he/she should at least become more sensitive. When he/she becomes old enough to speak you could play the "guess the number from 1-10 game" or the shapes and colors game, which is what my dad subtly did with me and my siblings. You could play more of these telepathic games as well. You could create a construct (again, when the child can speak) and tell him/her to "feel for the shape" to practice energy manipulation and sensing/scanning. PK would be harder, though. However, with the more advanced games it would be quite difficult to play them subtly and the child may know something weird is up. So for most of the games you should wait and ask the child if they are interested in psionics and if they would like to practice with you. That's all I have for now.

Oh, and congratulations on your child!

My advice as a parent of two children is, don't worry about it at first. You can play with energy around them a bit, show them what it feels like, but they have PLENTY to do just learning all of the basic things kids need to learn. That and they will have the attention span of a gnat. <G>
I'm planning to start teaching my son this summer. He's 6 now, and Horse has been teaching them to meditate a bit too, (much giggling is involved in meditation, did you know?)
Every child will be different--don't try too hard, and recognize that young children change a lot very quickly--they may gain and lose ability, then gain it again as they grow older. Always make sure that it's a fun thing, never too much like work, and never frightening.
Stick to simply using psi around them, and showing it to them, don't expect them to participate until they are older and able to focus for longer periods of time. They will let you know when they're ready by showing an interest in mimicking you when you do it.
As for how to progress with older children...well, I'll let you know when I get there how things work with mine. lol

To Nightshade, Thanks.
To WW, also thanks,

If he/she is anything like my little brother dylan, or me and my dad, then he/she will probably pay a massive amount of attention to everything around him/her, if not I'll just have to take things slow. I remember once when I was barely able to count to ten(I was like, 3) I was in a library looking at books but not reading them, but at the same time I knew that they were words and they all meant something different. At the time the male RR had a no books inside restroom sign, For some reason I thought it meant not to go inside, probably cuz I noticed the girls room didn't have this sign, so instead I used the girls room and a security guard nabbed me and took me back to my mom. lol. If i'm lucky then my child will think the way I did back then.

NoMad: Well, paying a lot of attention to what's around you doesn't necessarily mean any of those things HOLD your attention for longer than 3 minutes.. ;)

In a child's memory, 5 minutes is a really long time. XD
They will probably do better with active and interactive practices--particularly if they involve physical activity.

One interesting thing I saw in Sybil Leek's "Diary of a Witch" was a game her family used to play with her as a child. Her grandmother would take a tray, and put a bunch of different items on it, then cover it with a cloth. She'd bring the tray in to where the girl was sitting, and then uncover the tray for a short while. Then she would cover it back up and take it away, and ask her what had been on the tray. Over time, she uncovered the tray for shorter periods of time, and added more items.

It struck me as a fun way to develop memory and paying attention to your surroundings.

Thusfar, for my son, who's just over one now, i'll play with him normally. Occasionally I'll get him to chase psiballs around, but he doesnt always pick up on it. Just let the kid be a kid really, if you want to play the equivalent of psi-paintball when he's older, that's always fun.

Mastering physical motor tasks and understanding the world basically is probably more important, learning psi can probably done once they function properly. It would probably also give them good perspective to tell what's real and not for when they actually test it.

However, keeping good house shields, and shield's on a child's room, can likely help reduce nightmares and prevent some potential bad experiences for sensitive children.

yes what winged wolf said: shield the house and room

Watch for signs of psi. Watch REALLY closely for pathy and empathy.

If they develop either, shield or filter in crowded spaces will make them more comfortable.

Play with them. Kids like games and toys. If they are psi... a psi parent will figure it out fairly quickly.

Psi ball has been a life long game with my children. Now that they're a bit older, I HATE playing psiball with them. They are very creative, and last time we entertained ourselves on a long lightrails ride I had a psiball goo down the side of my face. (just days ago)

there are more issues as children grow up with psi, in the begining its fairly basic. Broadcast love and comfort at them. Do that to any child anyway, but a psi child can benefit doubly from this.

Treat it like everything else. You show a baby pretty pictures to stimulate them visually, you expose them to language by constantly speaking to them, you stimulate auditory perception with music, you hold, you love, you cuddle, you kiss, you smile, you love. You expose them to psi, you broadcast your love, More than ANYTHING ELSE during the first few months babyes need love, and psi is just one more way to give it to them. WHen they're old enough to play with toys, add psi constructs to their "toy chest" perma-psi balls, ETC. When you roll a ball back and forth, do the same with psi balls, ETC.

shield them when they need. warn other psi's if you have a strong broadcaster.
