Overview

Internationally recognized psychic and star of A&E’s hit show Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal, Chip Coffey shares his personal story of discovering his gift at a young age and offers valuable advice for nurturing and embracing psychic ability.

NO one knows more about psychic kids than Chip Coffey, and no expert on psychic kids is better known throughout the world. These kids are widely misunderstood, misjudged, and misdiagnosed. In Growing Up Psychic, Chip Coffey offers indispensable information for anyone who interacts with these extraordinary youngsters—parents, educators, medical professionals, mental health clinicians, members of the clergy, paranormal investigators—and adults who faced the challenges of growing up psychic.

In Growing Up Psychic, drawing on his firsthand experience and the true stories of kids he has worked with and helped, Chip Coffey shows you how to:

• Determine if a child is really psychic—as opposed to simply imaginative or seeking attention
• Identify the different kinds of psychic abilities kids (and adults) might have
• Gain control over when and how psychic information is received
• Safely connect with others in the psychic community
• Deal with skeptics and disbelievers

“Read Chip Coffey’s book to learn about an astonishing, inspiring, unexplained propensity of the human mind.”
—from the foreword written by Dr. Raymond Moody, author of Life After Life

    Highly recommend

    I absolutely love Chip Coffey. The book was great. I love reading about personal experiences and that there are people out there with special abilities and that they do not need to be alone. I feel for the parents that needs to comfort their kids because they are psychic. This book is a great, easy-to-read book with great ideas and teachings. Keep up the great work Chip.

    loved it!!!!

    I'm not a big reader and I read Chip's book within 24hrs. I adore his sense of humor and how candid he is. I'm sure parents will find this book helpful if they have kids with psychic abilities and if not, it's still a darn good book! I can't wait for the next one!!!

    Only OK

    It gets repetitive after a few chapters. These topics are repeated over and over again:Treat your kids, even psychic ones with love and encouragement. Don't just assume there is something mentally wrong with your kid just because they say they're hearing voices. But also don't assume your kid is psychic just because they knew you were making meatloaf for dinner that night. Got it. I wish it had more behind the scenes stories from Paranormal State and Psychic Kids. I still don't know much about his childhood even though "Growing up Psychic" is the name of the book. It should have been called "Handbook for the Potentially Psychic Kid and/or His/Her Parents"

    I've always know that I was different, and I had a really hard conveying the messages I received to those that they were meant for. This book empowered me to embrace my God given gift. I have never felt so at ease and comfortable with what I know I am capable of. I really hope that Chip publishes another book in the near future. If you believe that you too have a psychic gift, or that your child might, please do yourself and your child the favor of reading this!

    For this being Chip Coffey's first book, hopefully more to come(hint,hint) I got it and finished it within hours. He gave good detail to his up bringning, and he is helping our society with today's children and how to understand where they are coming from. Thank you, Chip, your mom's plea has come true in so many ways!

    A very practical guide for the psychic, those who love them and those who need to learn about them, like doctors and teachers. I'm not a kid, but I'm very psychic, and I learned lots from Mr. Coffey's book. Well done on a great and very needed guide!

    So helpful in understanding.....

    I really enjoyed reading Chip's book. To hear someone else's perspective about life with/as a gifted child was very refreshing. My daughter is sensitive and it took a long tome for our family to come to terms with that using just our own ideas. If I'd had this to read 10 years ago, our lives would have been much easier and her adolescence much less turbulent. Thanks for a great resource Chip!
