The 'New' Children

The 'New' children have come with a purpose to help the planet evolve spiritually and they have different characteristics to help in this.

We are moving from the old energy of fear (competition , stress , corruption and greed) to a new energy of love (manifestation, integrity and co-operation)

Names being given to these children are 'Indigo' 'Rainbow' and 'Crystal' amongst others.

These children remember their Spiritual and divine connections.

The first group... Indigo... although there have been some arriving over the years and you may be an Indigo adult , started coming en masse in the 1970's.

These children have often been called trouble makers or problem children as they can have a 'warrior' temperament , a strong temper and a head strong nature.

They may not comply with systems which they intuitively know are dysfunctional and limiting. They have come into the world with a purpose to show that old systems of education , government and health care are not working and to help bring in change.

Thousands of these children are being 'labelled' with ADD/ADHD and being medicated..........

They are highly telepathic and can read minds and peoples energy. They show an intuitive understanding of spirituality and energy healing.

'Rainbow' children are the latest arrivals. Their energy is the purest so far. They have a high vibration of pure joy and contentment and have a peaceful nature.

Their presence gives out a feeling of 'holiness'. They communicate mostly through telepathy. These children  can be recognised by the energy of giving to parents rather than needing.

Regardless of whether your child is a 'new' child or not, he or she is a special beautiful being who is here on this planet to bring blessings to you and others whose life they touch.

The reason for determining whether your child may be Indigo , Crystal or a combination of these traits is to help you understand that your child's characteristics have a Spritually based origin and to lead you to further research  to find  techniques and tools to help your child (and yourself) with the challenges and gifts they bring.



Ideas for working with 'New' children


1. Think and teach visually.

Using pictures and visual aids during teaching is helpful , especially with numbers, directional terms and word recognition.

2. Use an area of interest or special talent to connect with the child to help improve academic skills and increase attention.

e.g. If a child is interested in insects use toy insects for counting or pictures of insects with subtitles for word recognition.

If the child has tactile sensory problems searcg for insects outside to encourage acceptance of different textures.

3. Be aware of environmental distractions such as bright lights or loud sounds which may interfere with learning or comfort.

Some children learn better when moving about or using their hands, while other children may need silence or near darkness in order to concentrate.

4. Utilize technology such as television , CDs and computers because these children usually respond better to visual cues than verbal or written instructions.

5. Avoid figurative language.

Make your expectations simple and clear. Reinforce your ideas with pictures or show what you mean.

Avoid lengthy verbal instructions and break them up into clearly described steps. Wait for your child to complete one step before moving to the next.

6. Be aware of generalisations.

Children may associate a skill or behaviour with one specific location e.g. a child may use a knife and fork or spoon at home without realising they must use these when away from home. Mastery of each skill may need to take place in a variety of locations.


Some Behaviour Tips:

1. Do not reinforce undesired behaviour.

Reward correct responses. Ignore negative behaviours and incorrect responses.

Do not punish.

2. Stick to a routine.

These children need routine to feel secure. Even the slightest disruption to a schedule could cause tantrums.

Schedule meal times , sleep times etc and if there is to be a change warn the child in advance if possible.

3. Use repetition to modify behaviour.

Teach new skills or improve communication. These children often learn and retain information more easily when given information repeatedly and in a variety of settings.

4. Tackle one problem at a time.

If a child has several behavioural problems list them in order of importance and severity.

Choose one problem at a time and work with that until the behaviour reaches an acceptable level before tackling another one.

5. They sometimes have difficulty processing social skills and need help to know how to act and respond in social situations.

One of the best way to teach social skills is by the child watching and copying you.

6. Be patient and understanding.

It can be frustrating and may take considerable time before yoyu see improvements.

Take time and do not feel discouraged if attempts seem initially unsuccessful.
