When I list these characteristics of Indigo Children at my workshops, most parents and kids quickly "get it," and know for sure that they or their children are Indigos. Read the first page

I have a 3 y old son who I could recognize as an indigo child, so I decided to learn more and bought "The Care and Feeding of Indigo Children"
by Doreen, PhD Virtue. After the first chapter I was crying like a baby, because all these years I was "bullied" and make fun of by adults because I was hyperactive, always asked too many questions, didn't want to conform and seeing dead people... Well, here it was black on white my life! She says that some of us are "lightworkers", another book to read I guess. Now, I have the tools to guide and help my son who is already showing signs of struggling to be and remain different... special. I also wept for the million of children on Ritalin. Fantastic tool, a source of enlightment and happiness! More people should open their mind and take a leap of faith. ...

Format: Paperback
In this book, Doreen Virtue describes clearly the ways in which we are evolving as a species. Children born since about 1975 kids are demonstrating specific traits, which are different than those of previous generations. Along with these different traits come different needs. They carry more energy. They have more finely developed intuitive abilities. They need a reason to do things; rote learning and rigid authority are intolerable to them. They need activities to be life-purposeful. They have a sense of life purpose that is strong and must be respected. And they have great gifts to share as light-workers, innovators, healers and problem-solvers.
Dr. Virtue gives parents the information they need to support the unfoldment and development of their kids in every aspect of life from "care and feeding" their kids physically to nurturing their spiritual development, talents and abilities. She draws upon her experience as a psychologist and a parent, on spiritual guidance and on good, solid research. She writing "voice" is clear, accessible, authoritative and loving.
This is a breakthrough book for parents, teachers and educators at every level, social workers, therapists and pediatricians. It will help them understand why medicating higher energy levels is counterproductive and will give them practical tips on alternative solutions, so that they can assist not only their own kids, but our culture itself to flourish.

Format: Paperback
Since other readers have given through review and high praise for this book, I'll add only one thing as my reason to recommend this book:
It was written at 2001.
Dr. Virtue wrote in her book that the indigo children will be awaken and come into maturity within the years 2011 to 2013.
As an indigo child myself, I could feel no greater force from my previous times than this year, that's pushing my into spiritual awareness and awakening. I'm ready to go on searching into the realm of spirituality, by breaking free from the expectations that my family holds for me, and getting in contact with comrades who have similar interests as me. I'll start my social life from the spirituality discussion groups within the university, I could feel that my real life is moving on track.
--I simply don't understand, how does Dr. Virtue knew that 2011, was the year~

Format: Paperback
Indigo children, a recognized group among today's young people, have been diagnosed, studied, and supported by psychologists, educators, and lay people. Born after 1978, they are described as bright, intuitive, strong-willed, and sometimes self-destructive individuals. I learned about them from some educators I served in a consulting capacity and read "The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived" by Lee Carroll and Jan Tober. I learned a lot from that book and found myself wanting more. That drive led me to this book.
Compared to "The Indigo Children", this book fell short of my expectations. Because of the author's strong spiritual leaning, the topics, content, and treatment went much further into angels and prayers than it did into how to work practically with these special young people. Perhaps I should have expected this when I saw the author's photo on the back cover. It's a rather unusual shot of a woman in a forest with a Koala bear and she does not appear to have clothes on. Different kind of author photo than I'm accustomed to.
Virtue is described as a PhD "spiritual doctor of psychology." She's heavily invested in angels (author of "Healing with Angels"), which is quite obvious in the book. There is significant text devoted to angels, prayers, and the evils of pharmaceuticals like Ritalin. Some readers may find the pre-written prayers helpful for them. My Indigo step-daughter was less than enthusiastic about prescriptions for communicating with spirits, though the book suggests that some Indigos are really into that sort of experience.
The book includes a number of valuable tips about diet, concentration, and overcoming insomnia. I would have personally preferred more emphasis on these practical techniques than the heavy spiritual component and astrological comments.
