Psychic Children

by Stanley Young

A Welsh child dies in the Aberfan landslide that she has predicted . . . A Mexican girl receives visitors from all over the world who go away cured of their ailments . . . A little girl describes trips that only her dead sister has taken . . . Marvelous visions, amazing memories of past times, eerie poltergeist energies: bordering on the miraculous, these are true stories. Here is a fascinating book full of incidents, most recently investigated, in which children demonstrated striking powers of clairvoyance, precognition, and psychokinesis. "Why a book exclusively about the psychic experiences of children?" asks author Samuel Young. "Very simply, I feel their need is the greatest. They stand to suffer the most damage from those who do not comprehend their particular sensitivity. They can also make the greatest gains through understanding and the proper encouragement." While offering stunning glimpses into a magical world that is less remote than most of us think, Psychic Children also provides practical (and heretofore hard-to-find) advice to parents on how to handle a child who displays psychic abilities.
