      How to parent an Indigo child and get the most from your gifted child
      Wendy H. Chapman has compiled a guide for parents and teachers, here
      are some of her suggestions:

      * Respect them
      * Give choices
      * Give them freedom to develop, balanced with supervision and
      safety limits.
      * Do set limits to protect them, but not arbitrary ones.
      * Tell reasons and explain why.
      * Give them complete explanations to the level they will be able
      to understand.
      * Do not talk down to them.
      * Be honest with your children. Tell the truth. They will know if
      you are not.
      * Don't try to manipulate them. It won't work.
      * Don't use guilt, fear or hate as a controlling tool.
      * Be fair and also be consistent. If you say no, make sure you
      have a good reason and don't give in.
      * Admit when you make mistakes.
      * Respect any psychic skills they develop, even if you do not
      understand them.
      * Be open to learning from them.
