Parenting a psi-active child

Is anyone else here raising a psi-active child? What do they do? How do you cope?

parenting

Basically I was hoping we parents could share stories and give each other advice.

I remember once when Charli(my daughter) came with me to my friends house. Rather interesting thing happened, without having ever consciously explained to her what my best friend Jason looked like, she walked up straight to him, greeted him by name and gave him a hug. I don't remember ever telling her about him nor had she ever met him, was an interesting experience to say the least. At the end of the day I won't actively force her to learn any of this, but if she ever asks me why it's happening I'll be the one there to help her cope with the abilities.

Just remember, it's not about us parents coping with our kids, they didn't choose to be here nor should they ever be seen as a burden(not that you were implying such a thing). But, at the end of the day we just need to be there for them to help them.

Being a psi active child can be (and often is) really scary if you don't know what's going on. I remember always thinking I was weak and pathetic, just because I didnt know what an empath was. I sectretly hated being around others, but didn't have an outlet for my stress. plus, I had such low self-esteem, I just 'sank' into any crowd that would take me in (and they often weren't the nicest bunch). I was so out of whack, I couldn't even tell subconciously that I was being overloaded.

I (subconciously) discovered that during 5th grade (and took REALLY long bathroom breaks), but the most I knew about psychic abilities conciously came from what i saw on Pokemon. But the worst part of it was that my mom knew about all of this, and never told me, nor did anything effective about it (to the extent of my knowledge). when I did discover what I had, I went to her with it, She said we are part of a line of born-on empaths(not strictly in those words, though), and that I was too young to understand when I was a child. Perhaps she was right, but if she can do half of what she claims, she could have at least shielded me.

Also, when we moved into the house we live in now, I always had a feeling of terror whenever I was alone. I discovered two years ago that our house is haunted by a malicious spirit, and only recently have I begun to make efforts to exorcise the thing.

First, find out what your child's abilities are. not so easy, as chldren can be like teens when it comes to these sorts of things. Anyway, Once those are identified, see if you can explain what's going on.

If your child is too young to understand psionics, then shield him/her, and wait until they're old/mature enough to understand. Going through childhood constantly overloaded is something no-one should have to deal with.

Ha. I am 13, and I discovered I have natural psychic abilities when I was 11. I was at the beach when all of a sudden I was literally seeing through peoples eyes. I told my parents and they said I was reading to many harry potter books. Also telepathically gave my brother a terrible nightmare. I don't do that anymore.

It depends on the person and abilities in question. I never had many issues as a child, as my abilities were primarily combative. All that happened, was people did what I wanted them to do in most cases, and people didn't like arguing with me. Made me feel smart :P
