"Raising Intuitive Children gives parents excellent explanations with true-life stories that first brings normalcy to what has previously been viewed as a phenomenon, and then provides a terrific skill set for parents and caregivers alike."
-Meg Blackburn Losey, PhD, author of The Children of Now

"An informed and thoughtful approach to parenting of intuitively aware, energetically sensitive children in an ever-changing world."

"All who care for kids will enjoy its cutting-edge research and fascinating stories."
-Sandra Sedgbeer, editor in chief, Inspired Parenting and Children of the New Earth magazines

"A must read for all parents as all children are inherently intuitive."
-Sonia Choquette, author of The Intuitive Spark: Bringing Intuition Home to Your Child, Your Family, and You

Raising Intuitive Children helps parents understand an intuitive child's world and teaches them how to validate, not suppress, these intuitive abilities. The stakes are high; if intuitive children get dismissed, they can lose their way, their joy, and their spirit.

Psychotherapist Caron Goode teams up with parenting expert and coach Tara Paterson to share explanations, stories, and examples-many from Tara's own family-in this ground-breaking guide. It shows how to:

• Know if a child is intuitively gifted.
• Shift the parenting style to meet a child's style and strengths.
• Use breathing techniques to stay centered, calm, and optimistic.
• Create rituals so children can feel solid and bring forth their intuitive intelligence.
• Deal withenvironmental and nutrition elements that especially affect intuitives.
• Explore strategies for bonding and communication at each stage of development.

    Superb and essential for today's parents

    Raising Intuitive Children provides readers with a holistic approach to parenting and understanding all the gifts our children bring with them into the world. It will raise your confidence as a parent and ensure your children embrace their intuition as a natural part of who they are. Intuition helps us see and sense that which exists and influences us but cannot always be known by the physical eye. It reminds us that we are far more the physical, psychological, emotional and social beings. Spirit and energy define each of us in subtle yet significant ways, and intuition opens us to this important aspect of ourselves. The authors help the reader understand this in deep yet practical ways. This is a must read for any parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or teacher who are invested in helping today's children be all they can be. Also, it is important that children grow up confident and accepting of all their innate abilities, most especially their intuition. Raising Intuitive Children provides the rich and vital information to ensure this can happen. Elaine K. Williams LMSW, CHt
