Format: Paperback
"Quite often when I give people valid psychic information, they want to know, 'How did you know that?' I just shrug my shoulders, shake my head and tell them, 'I don't know how I know what I know, I just know that I know it.'" (Chapter One, Page 2)

In a phone conversation one month ago Chip correctly "diagnosed" a super bad depression I was suffering & suggested I let my doctor know the med I was taking may not be working anymore?? Truly, I had no clue that this is what was happening. But a man hundreds of miles away picked up on this immediately. Chip is for real! He helps people. I doubt if even he knows what a positive impact he's had upon my life. Yes, I am singing his praises loud & clear.

Get Chip's book. You will be entertained AND you will be taught. You will enjoy reading life's lessons from his experiences. I loved that. An added bonus is the wealth of information he gives including a glossory, suggested reading list & much much more! WOW!

I was very excited to pre-order this book. I really like Chip Coffey, his appearances on Paranormal State were awesome and really like his show Psychic Kids. I was expecting more background on his childhood. I thought it was going to be very interesting in detail but it wasn't about that at all. He touched a little on his childhood, but it was more of an add on to his show and how to help psychic kids, which is great. I just mis-understood the title and was really expecting to read his biography I guess, which I was interested in.

This is Chip Coffey's first book and it is excellent. Not your usual "I am psychic" book, his focus is on helping the children and the parents of children who are or may be psychic. If you (if you're younger) or your child has been diagnosed with a mental illness, give this book a read. It may just be you/they are displaying signs of being psychic instead. This book gives you somewhere to go for more information and help. Based on Chip's own growing up, education and experience. Surviving and thriving as he says. A must read.

Unexpected Help Sept. 23 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed Chip's work on TV so I pre-ordered Growing Up Psychic. I was curious about this book from the moment I heard about it because I had experienced a great deal of psychic ability as a kid. The book came in the mail promptly at the beginning of April and I started it right then. As fate would have it, events in my life interrupted and I had to fly out to California to visit my sick mother. I took the book with me as something to read on the plane but I was too distracted to read because I knew this would be the last time I would be with Mom in this life. She was dying of colon cancer that she had been fighting for 4 years. I got to spend a special week with her before I had to fly back home and start a new job.

Chip's words came in handy in a way I had never expected. My mother was scared and I was there to help her with her last doctor appointment and to enter into Hospice care. We talked quietly of what might happen; talked about death and what comes after. I did my best to reassure her and sooth her fear. I related some stories from my own experience as well as from Growing Up Psychic. These talks seemed to help her. I arranged a visit from the local priest for her and did whatever I could to make her comfortable. The family gathered with her for her final appointment with the oncologist and, even though she was still scared, she accepted and agreed to Hospice. She was in good hands when I left and she passed peacefully a month later. We had left nothing unsaid between us. So, Chip, thank you for the help.

As often happens, life got crazy after that and I have not been able to write this review until now. No matter what you believe about death and the afterlife, I found Growing Up Psychic was a warm and helpful book. The organization of the chapters is a bit loose and free-flowing but that did not detract from the advice and intent of the stories. Chip gives a caring, articulate, humorous and helpful outlook for gifted kids in need of some support.

Growing Up Psychic April 4 2012
By Shannon L. Yarbrough - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Chip Coffey since his work on Paranormal State and later on his own show Psychic Kids. I follow him on Facebook and when I learned about the release of his first book sometime last year, I immediately pre-ordered it. At just 250 pages, it's a quick read but it is filled with valuable and insightful information.

It starts with Chip's own story and his childhood psychic abilities and experiences as his family moved around the south. Chip also reveals his first paranormal investigations and his first experience as a medium, leading up to his eventual television debut and how he got his own show.

From here, Chip spends the next few chapters explaining what it means to be psychic, how to tell if your child might be psychic, and how to control and manage psychic gifts. He also spends a chapter explaining the need for psychic protection and how to deal with skeptics.

Since the focus of the book is mainly on how to support your psychic child, Chip offers up the stories of many of the children that appeared on Psychic Kids. There are several follow-ups as to how they are doing now, and there are several passages told from the children themselves and their parents. Therapists, other mediums, and some paranormal investigators also lend their voice to the experiences that Chip shares with his readers.

While the book is part autobiography, part self-help book, part paranormal investigation, and part psychic guide, I found Chip's own personal stories to be the most rewarding. There's a very touching story about his mother being visited by the ghost of Elvis's mom, and another frightening story about a devil-like creature visiting Chip's family farm when he was a boy. There are also numerous helpful checklists from an explanation of various paranormal investigative tools to the warning signs of demonic possession.

Chip has written a book that all of his fans and many readers will find useful and fascinating. If you believe you have psychic abilities, or you have a child who might be psychic, or you have a general interest in the paranormal, then this book is for you. It's a very approachable read, and that's what I've always admired in Chip himself. Fame is not important to him; he respects his abilities and uses them to help mentor others. He is a sincere likable person and his book reflects just that!

Highly recommend! Feb. 18 2013

I consider Chip Coffey to be one of the most genuine people in the psychic field. He's honest and if you choose not to believe or do what he recommends, its up to you, no high pressure selling from him. I think if I were going to have a reading,(which I would love to have) Chip would be my choice.
Its an honest story of his growing up with his gift and where he has gone with himself and is genuinely comforable in his skin.

Love It! Jan. 25 2013
By B. Youngblood - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this book from Amazon in ebook form for my Kindle Fire, because I didn't want to wait until I could get to the book store. I wanted it right then!

I wanted to read this book because I adore Chip Coffey. I've been a huge fan of his since I first saw him on Paranormal State. He's a southerner too...What's not to love? :o)
I expected this book to be more of a personal memoir, and it does contain some of his own personal experiences. However, it also discusses the experiences of the children he has worked with and gives advice for parents of children with psychic abilities. His advice is practical and down-to-earth. His tone is warm and caring. His own experiences with the cruelty of others allows him to prepare both parents and children for making their way in an intolerant society. There is also a list of recommended books for further reading.
I enjoyed this book. It was as entertaining as it was informative. I especially enjoyed the stories in the appendix - amazing personal experiences. I can't wait to read his next book!

Read this book if:

*you or someone you love has psychic ability
*you are a Chip Coffey fan
*you love to read about personal psychic experiences
