This book is a must for the parents of unusually bright and active children. Indigo children are those who display a new and unusual set of psychological attributes and show a pattern of behaviour generally undocumented before. In this groundbreaking book on the Indigo Child, international authors Lee Carroll and Jan Tober report the information of this increasingly documented and world-wide phenomenon and tell you how to identify this behavioural pattern and guide you on how you, as a parent or teacher of these children, can help them realise their amazing potential not forgetting their spiritual needs or specific health issues.

Author Notes

Jan Tober (left) and Lee Carroll speak before thousands of seminar attendees worldwide on human enablement and empowerment. Lee has authored seven self-help books over the past ten years that have been translated into multiple languages. Jan is the author of numerous articles, audiocassettes, and CDs related to self-help. Jan and Lee have been invited three times to present their message of hope and love at the United Nations.
