i have learnt since my son is on this world never to underestimate him. most times his thoughts are much more elaborated than mine or the ones of his
he is 11 years old so far and will become 12 by the end of the year.
we use to talk about anything he or i am interested in – this ranges from spirituality, sex, paranormals, science up to UFOs. usually he has made up
his mind before – most times i really don.t know how, but he has.
he sometimes asks questions which i have to answer briefly. ok in former times much briefer than nowadays. he is not really interested in religion for
example, but a very spiritual being,
when he was 5 yo he told me about his past lifes. when he entered primary school he enrolled in RE for 2 years and surprised his teacher in first
lesson: " I don.t belive in god, but we are all god!"
for UFOs: although neither me nor him has seen one yet he knows that we are not alone in this universe, to him it is quiet logical. and i guess he
would be less afraid by seeing a flying saucer than me :
he also had had his children belives, still loves fairy tales, big fan of harry potter.
very funny his belive in santa claus, which he kept until he was 8yo (ok then it was destroyed by his dad on that very xmas eve!) - everybody at his
grade didn.t belive in santa, but he. i asked myself if he wouldn.t be wondering about it, or maybe if the other kids might poke fun on him. no prob,
his explanation: "I know that santa is existing, i have seen him! (a santa actor!) I know that some kids don.t belive in santa, which is a problem,
because their parents have to buy all the xmas presents, not with us, we get the presents by santa"
my kid tells his dad now all the time: "do you know that mommy is at that UFO forum?"
so just talk to your kids, see how they react, they will ask, then reply
