    Re: star Children

    Is this similar to the indigo child thing? Personally, I don't buy it. I'd use stronger words then that, but I don't want to be rude and rain on your parade if it brings you joy.

    Re: star Children

    Personally, and not to be insulting, Yukanaoe, I think the whole 'indigo/rainbow/star/glow/moonshine/dreambaby' whatever is a bunch of New Age pablum fed to parents who want to believe that their children are just a little more special & unique than all the other kids out there in the world.

    Some of my friends grew up with New Age parenting and turned out to be entitled, self-centered, spoiled brats who fell into drug abuse, self destruction and depression once they hit the 'real world' (of course, so did a lot of my non-New-Age-parented friends... but not all my non-New-Age friends were raised with that weird entitlement issue, especially those whose parents couldn't afford rose quartz night lights and Delta wave baby mobiles). Just because their parents treated them with kid gloves and were extra sensitive to their delicate alien DNA or ascended master past life doesn't mean their high school teachers, college professors, peers and employers are going to do the same. Putting them on shiny crystal pedestals just seems kind of mean in the long run.

    This, exactly. I'll also take it a step more, that particular site also reads like it's for parents that want to think they're special, too. Chosen to help these special children because they're special and gifted, too. I'm sorry, but I just don't buy it, the whole idea doesn't really make sense to me.
    And I mean, reading the section for the indigo children? Most of the kids I know could pass that test. Same with the rainbow children bit...

    Mister Rogers says we're all special, that's good enough for me, don't need to be a cyrstal/rainbow/whatever person to be special.

    To be honest, the second "Indigo" paragraph sounds like most people between about 10-19 who are halfways intellectual. You're always going to go through somewhat of a streak like that. The third paragraph sounds like pretty much everyone in their tweens and teens.

    I mean yeah, those are some pretty specific personality types when you read the questions, but there are also more mundane personality tests (meyers briggs, for example) that lead in those directions.

    Re: star Children

    I'm with Perze and Gardenia in thinking its a bunch of wishful thinking (I have used stronger words upon occasion)...personally I've found it sort of odd and off-putting when that happens. And...it happens, actually quite often since we occasionally go to places where people that believe in those things tend to go (The Heritage has the CSA and best vegetarian cafe in Hampton Roads). Of course, I know my kids can't be star children, because hubby and I would never have been chosen as their parents, so it doesn't matter, lol!

    Now...I do think that many children are sensitive, observant, intuitive, giving and creative in ways that most adults have grown out of (and just as often oblivious, insensitive, selfish, etc)...but I don't think that makes them "special", just developmentally different.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Maybe they meant he was gay?

    You can tell if your baby is gay if he's too feminine. Does he lack facial hair? Is he known to shed a tear now and then? Is his voice soft and not deep and manly?

    If the answer to all those questions is yes, then your baby is gay. It's science.
    Do they not, then, ponder about the Qur‘an? Had it been from someone other than Allah, they would have found in it much discrepancy. [4:82]
