Overview

Is my child psychic? Do all psychic children see ghosts? Are stress and seeing ghosts related? How can we help them not be afraid?

Kids Who Sees Ghosts takes an up close and personal look at kids who see ghosts, the parents who want to help them, the science of perception, and how kids are affected, to answer these questions and offer real tools and guidance. Many children and parents are afraid, some to the point of physical illness. Cautious and concerned parents worry for their children's fears and educate themselves on how to handle the situation. But Goode teaches that it doesn't matter whether parents believe in ghosts to know how to help children through frightening experiences.

Bridging the gap from mainstream to the nonphysical, Goode challenges readers to open their minds for the journey through ghost tales and to learn empowerment strategies for their kids. From shamans to psychics to skeptics, Kids Who See Ghosts offers a wide range of viewpoints to from such notables as Lynn Andrews, Bruce Lipton, Brad Steiger, P.M.H. Atwater, and Donna Seebo, and includes questionnaires for parents, and practical exercises and activities to address fear in a child-friendly manner and teach parents how to:

* Use exceptional thinking to break through fears

* Start the right conversations early

* Overcome restrictive thinking
