Top 10 Tips for Parenting Indigos
by Wendy H. Chapman
- BE HONEST
Give complete explanations as much as possible for their intelligence
- DON'T MANIPULATE
No guilt trips. They don't work with Indigos.
- SHOW THEM RESPECT
They are only smaller in age, but often wiser in spirit. Don't talk
down to them, they will resent it. Show respect. Treat them as equals
as much as possible. Let them help to
create rules and the consequences. Make sure they have limits that
will protect them.
- EMPOWER THEM
Let them develop autonomy by doing as much as they can themselves. Let
them choose clothing. Teach them to bathe themselves at a young age.
- RESPECT THEIR PSYCHIC SKILLS
Help to develop these metagifted talents with practice, classes, and encouragement.
- TEACH THEM ENERGY SHIELDING and GROUNDING SKILLS
Indigos are very sensitive to emotions. They will have severe mood
swings and the moods are often caused by picking up on the energies of
others around them. Training in various energy healing techniques can
help with this.
- TEACH THEM RELAXATION SKILLS and MEDITATION
These skills will help them be better able to handle life, find balance, and connect
with the spirit world.
- RESPECT THEIR EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL SENSITIVITY
which is bound to be extreme and seem unusual, but they're NOT kidding and
they may need your help to tolerate these feelings.
- FIND ALTERNATE THERAPY FOR ADD AND OTHER DIFFABILITIES
Don't give them medication such as Ritalin, etc, for ADD or other 'diffabilities'. Find
alternate means of working with these behaviors, such as nutritional
supplements, flower essences, behavioral modifications, and allowing
student choices in learning.
- HELP THEM DEVELOP AWARENESS OF THEIR INDIGO NATURE
MISSION IN LIFE
The Indigos are all here for a reason. They have unique behavioral
characteristics so they will be better able to help bring in the new
energies and help improve the world. Until they realize this, they
may have great difficulty dealing with their humanity and handling the
difficulties of being oversensitive and different. If they learn there
is a reason for their differences, they will be better able to handle
them and work towards their mission of planetary ascension.
