Growing Up Psychic by Chip Coffey

Growing Up Psychic by Chip Coffey is a helpful book for kids and adults to read that either are psychic, think they might be, or know of a family member or friend that is going through the process of growing up as a psychic.

Book Description
Internationally recognized psychic and star of A&E’s hit show Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal, Chip Coffey shares his personal story of discovering his gift at a young age and offers valuable advice for nurturing and embracing psychic ability.

NO one knows more about psychic kids than Chip Coffey, and no expert on psychic kids is better known throughout the world. These kids are widely misunderstood, misjudged, and misdiagnosed. In Growing Up Psychic, Chip Coffey offers indispensable information for anyone who interacts with these extraordinary youngsters—parents, educators, medical professionals, mental health clinicians, members of the clergy, paranormal investigators—and adults who faced the challenges of growing up psychic.

In Growing Up Psychic, drawing on his firsthand experience and the true stories of kids he has worked with and helped, Chip Coffey shows you how to:

• Determine if a child is really psychic—as opposed to simply imaginative or
seeking attention
• Identify the different kinds of psychic abilities kids (and adults) might have
• Gain control over when and how psychic information is received
• Safely connect with others in the psychic community
• Deal with skeptics and disbelievers” – Growing Up Psychic

My Thoughts
Growing Up Psychic is one of the best books I’ve read that helps kids and adults deal with the struggles of being a psychic. Chip Coffey explains his story on growing up as a psychic kid, which takes courage for people to do. It is very rarely an “easy” road for anyone to take, but with help from others like Chip, it makes it at least a little bit easier.

Coffey’s experience on the TV show “Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal” is referenced often, as are the stories that the children featured on the show shared. Sure, there are many paranormal shows on TV now, but that doesn’t honestly make it that much easier for kids to tell their friends (or even their family) about their abilities now, let alone on a TV show. It is also nice to hear updates on the kids featured, and how they are doing better now.

I honestly wish that this book was around when I was growing up. It would have saved both me and my parents with some issues I was going through with the paranormal. If any kid or parent thinks that their kid might be going through something related to the paranormal, please get this book, it will help more than you can imagine. I highly recommend it.

* Thank you to the publisher of Growing Up Psychic, Three Rivers Press, for providing me with a copy of this book for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
