Parenting Indigos can be difficult and often discouraging.
As younger children they can be diagnosed with learning disabilities, ADD and/or ADHD, and have trouble in school. As they get older the problems in school can continue and even worsen. They do not process information the same way as other children which often leads to a misdiagnosis of learning disabilities—they are visual learners and do best when they can see and experience what they are learning about. For this reason homeschooling, alternative or specialized schools, such as the Waldorf schools, are best for them. Despite their often poor performance in school, Indigos are very intelligent.
Both the younger and adult Indigos take their time to find their life path. Many are still wondering what to do with their life after age 40. Many adult Indigos will not marry or have children until they are well into their thirties. But they won’t be alone, this is the ‘roommate generation’ and many of them will live with room mates, who will become their surrogate or extended family, for a long time. When they decide to marry, they will.
Indigos also often make terrible choices in romantic partnerships. They are highly sensitive and empathic and tend to choose the person who needs them the most, which is also the person who needs the most help. And the results can be disastrous.
Crystals can be less of a parenting challenge only because they are not as vocal, argumentative or forceful as Indigos. But in their own way they present parenting challenges because they can be very needy children, fussy, with poor health and high attention needs which can manifest when they are of school age. If they are raised in a stressful environment with loud talking, arguing or emotional tension they will simply draw farther into their shell until they refuse to connect with the outside world. Many autistic children are also Crystal children and they are here to hold certain energies in place while they live in their own little world. Don’t consider them to be mentally challenged because they are not. Even the most severely autistic children are highly intelligent. When they are ready to come out of their shell, when they feel the world is ready for them, they will and then they will amaze us with their extraordinary gifts and talents.
Whether you are an Indigo or Crystal or have a combination of these energies, you came here to do very special work. Finding that path can be a challenge and it may feel like many doors are closed to you. Do not be discouraged—you are the change the world needs and the secret to success for you is to believe in yourself and in your gifts, use your guidance to help you find the best outlet for them. Once you find your path you will be unstoppable and will have the joy, peace, understanding and acceptance that you desire.
