This is the important question which is bugging me for some time...

Will you tell your kids about the UFO/Alien stories/rumors/hoaxes/proofs etc... especially when they are in their teens or just turned 18...

remember this is a very important time for them, as they can build themselves as sportsmen or scientists or engineer...

I always enjoyed the aliens movies from my 20s but the real disclosure thing came to me just 2 years back... when I really did some reading and collected details about this matter. thought I am still skeptic but somewhere in my heart i want some higher power to exist... it can be God or sons of God
This all reasearch and reading... took lot of my time and I means important time... but since i am now settled in my job and life so that worked for me.

Sometimes I consider this topic similar to Sex... which should be disclosed to kids only when they can understand it and does not harm themselves.

Alsien stuff can panic or confuse them also the overwhelming stuff available... they may loose interest in whatever they are doing like studies... sports... what not...

Everyone loves their kids and want them to succeed in their life..

Please share your views... are you doing this... have you discussed with your kids... and when??

(I also want to share but dont know how and when)

I will tell you something more interseting... these are the words of my friend...

""I've often wondered two of my children have had these experiences.when my oldest son was four he used to talk and play with a friend callled joe,an imaginary friend..although i used to hear him talk to this joe as if he was really there.He also said he used to see a strange man at his bedroom door.In our new house my 8 year old daughter said she saw an angel upstairs in my bedroom doorway..she smiled at her and amy smiled back and this white glowing lady went back into my room.She said she wasn't frightened and didn't tell us at first becuase she didn't think there was anything odd about it,until she saw an angel in a book.She said "Daddy i know that lady....I've seen her upstairs" "

it's a common theory that children are more receptible to the paranormal, however, as time progresses the child will either develop or loose this ability as the world around him/her shapes their ideas and values, society conditions the child to either believe or not to believe in these type of things.

I have read some of the contact things were ETs were more interested in communicating with kids

Yes. My kids have seen UFO's with their own eyes, so they know that things are up there. I have taught them to keep an open mind, and not to fear the unknown. They, like myself, are fascinated by the subject of the paranormal and "greater" reality, or possibilities of such greater realities, if you will. I don't put thoughts or belief systems into their heads, but I do allow them to freely explore and question the universe, and form their own personal truths, whatever they may be.

what is their age and what was when you disclosed to them?

while I have never seen an alien.....I do believe they exist.

I told my 11yr old son all about aliens via the info available here at ATS and also told him they mean no harm.....if they wanted to harm/destroy us we would already be dead and gone. I also told to never be afraid of them......fear is counter-productive and can ruin a great experience.

he took it well.....but my guess is that he would still run from one

Ya know, I share with my 11-year-old step-daughter my opinion on a whole bunch of things. She asks, I answer. Sometimes I have to be strategically vague concerning things she is not old enough to hear my opinions on, but, I always answer honestly.
As far as UFO/Aliens? I tell her it's a big universe and who are we to say we are "it" as far as intellegent life goes.
She digs.

I have three children and they all attend a catholic school (my hubby is a catholic) and we have told them of our experiences of ufos.
Our girls are interested but my son absolutely loves the fact that we are not alone in the universe and would love to see a ufo.
We regularly go ufo hunting but have so far failed to see anything whilst with our kids.
I think its brilliant that they have an interest!!

I would tell them if they cared to listen on any beliefs. I would also reciprocate the lending of an ear.

What I would not feel comfortable in telling my children is that we stood by and watched while THEIR world slowly, methodically and selfishly was destroyed, with our own hands, and that we, while caretakers of this planet; or more precisely, while the caretakers of THEIR world, did, without attempting to sew for them a bountiful everlasting harvest, insuring earth's life supporting abundance of treasures (in all definitions of treasure), and too late now, with much regret, we depart from this planet and our earthly host bodies. Forever, their questions left unanswered. Too late is our understanding and too solomn are our hearts. Their reality is such that we surrender mortality, all the while knowing to the end that they will never know the earth that we did not share with them.

I for one, believe it is slippery ground to TELL your child anything that might affect their reality. As someone stated above, share your opinion, let them come to the conclusion. Treat them like people.

Just like religion, sex, etc.. If you TELL your kid how it is right off the bat, they will never become discerning, logical people.

Of course! My teen just borrowed my copy of Aliens From Space, and my youngest loves to hear me talk about the topic. It is a fascinating topic, and why on earth would I not share my love for this topic with my kids?

Me and the boys used to watch the skies on clear nights(in southern Indiana, here in Louisville, light pollution ruins my sky watching
) and have seen UFO's.

I dont see why a parent would not discuss the issue with their children, space is truly our final unexplored frontier!

My kids were called out for one of our sitings, they called me out for the low flying black triangle, and my oldest son has shared that he too is an experiencer.

What was their reaction?

are they interested to know more? do you find them reading this stuff or researching by themselves???

posted on Sep, 18 2008 @ 01:15 PM
They are just really keen to know more after they heard us talking about our experinces, we also have books on ufos and my son happily takes one to the toilet with him ( typical male lol )
We dont push them, just respond to their questions and let them make their own minds up.

Well, you could always start by listening to them, their questions, etc. without passing judgment. You could use articles in the paper, shows on discovery or History channel, and get conversations going. Maybe just ask them what THEY think of the topic, and play it by ear. Truly, space exploration should be a part of any discussions on UFO's, and encouraging kids to learn about physics and science is exciting and a good thing regardless of personal beliefs. IMO, it is a really fun subject to discuss with kids, in age appropriate ways of course.

I love hearing what young people think of what goes on in space, and in our skies. Their answers and thoughts are often times really cute, and interesting.

Edit to add: My kids are 17 and 12, and I have discussed this topic all of their lives. Not obsessively, or daily, but I am quite open with my opinions and have always been with my kids.

My kids were aged 6 through to 16 when they had their first siting. I went outside because I had a psi contact message that disturbed me so I went outside to have a smoke and looked up. It hovered for 5 minutes and my kids were very excited, one yelling: "we come in peace!" The other climbing the shed and waving.
