No, I've never seen one, to answer your question, so I remain skeptical but open-minded. Even if i did I think I would hold off, children take what their parents say at young ages to heart and for a child to be made fun of for something their parents told them would destroy them and also make them less susceptible to believe them in the future. I have some views on politics and things like that that are outside of the mainstream and I wouldn't push them on my child or even tell him until he was old enough to understand, and probably then only if he asked.

I have never hid my beliefs in aliens,ufos or any of the many other conspiracies I believe in. I have always encouraged them to believe what they want though, not forcing what I think on them. My oldest daughter, who is 14, has taken her own interest in these things. Not because I have forced her but because she has developed her own beliefs. She has read many of the books that I have read and developed her own opions. She has even read The Old World Secrets of the Omega Project Codes and did a book report on it at school. I see no problem, if your childs maturity level allows, discussing any of these things with them.

The other question that I have is to those people who are yet to tell their kids...

How are you planning this? will you show them the sky and tell your logic of life everywhere? or will you show them some video?? or books?
or will share your actual experience??

i hope those parents telling their kids we are being visited by E.Ts also teach them critical thinking skills too.

the world I live this. If we feel that a person has mental health issues...then they are considered a danger to thier family and especially children. You make up your little stories all you want...but in the end if the state feels you are mentally incompetent they will take your children and will place them with someone who is mentally stable. Believing that aliens are visiting us is IMO is mentally unstable...especially without proof. You tell your children these fairy tales....I promise you they will get out and someone will be visiting not the lil green men but men/women in suits and ties to evaluate your mental state. Trust will happen.

The only mental health issues that one could infect their children with is this: telling them not to believe their own "lying eyes" or experiences and that if they have something to say other than your narrow reality, that they won't be believed. The insults and inuendos you keep flinging around are not appreciated, and I would never allow you in the presence of my children who are being taught to think for themselves, explore the truth from more than one side, and most of all to trust their own experiences more than the opinions of others!

I would sit my children down and tell them something like this-
For my children who have hit puberty:
As you know, there may be aliens out there and if by chance you were ever to come in contact with them, they may make you take off your clothes and mate with them. Tell them no and blow your rape whistle for someone to save you.
For my prepubescent children:
Tell them your sex organs don't work and you'd rather play catch with them or something. They will most likely comply. If they don't, run away or they might use your body to do experiments.

Pretty pathetic that you havent spoken to them already about it...because 1) I'm sure they already have some clue as to life outside of this little measily planet. 2) Their friends have probably told them some stories 3) They see UFO's/Aliens all the time in media. 4) This is 2008- not 1948.

Get with the times. What exactly are you sheltering your kids from? Besides life?

Life outside of this disgusting planet is a positive thing to embrace and learn about- your stealing that away your child. At least give them a choice whether or not they chose to learn. I'm telling from experience. Kids today already know there's life outside of this planet. They're not as ignorant as you think.It's people like you that should be told about them, not your kids. Kids these days know everything.


Times have changed. If you don't tell your kids, one day they'll turn on the news and then you'll have a dumbfounded look on your face when a ufo's filmed and they'll just say "I told you so".

Support disclosure...We've been lied to for over 50 years by our government about these things...Don't continue the process by lying to your child. For you not to see the good in this, I dont understand.

well im just about to move into a new house with my partner and her son who is 11, so he will be exposed to my ufology books and videos at some point over the next few months.

Should he ask any questions about them ill be more than happy to explain this to him from all the different standpoints. My points of view, from a science view , a sceptics view etc. If he doesnt show any intrest then no harm done and the literature etc will be there for when hes older if he takes intrest at a later date.

If he takes interest from the beginning then ideal, ive got a new buddy to take along when i go nightwatching plus i can teach him some survival and camping techniques at the same time.

Ill happily discuss ufology with anyone on the planet never mind my own family and usually bring them round to the probabilities based from a scientific aspect alone. Its a very easy topic if you know your facts and your willing to embrace the subject.

Im a successful businessman with a major organisation, i live in a respectable community, i dont wear tin foil hats and hide in a bunker muttering about green men from space. Ufology is just my passion and im happy to tell anyone about the subject

There are things i openly share with them. I do tell/show my son (9) and daughter (8) 80% of the stuff that i find here on ATS and other such UFO/paranormal forums. My son is extremely keen, a huge interest of the unknown like myself, whereas my daughter will walk away after 5min to go watch Hannah Montanna or something.

ATS and certain forums alike are "safer" for kids than the Disney/Nik Channels, imo

I believe to keep from a child could very well make them take wrong roads or cause them to make poor decisions to find what you are hiding from them, well i know as a child i was like that and i will do the best i can to help them in life. As a parent i do not touch pornography sites but i know i must keep an open eye/ear as in school the kids of today are here to test us parents on all subjects.

That's why we've told them about ET. We used our critical thinking to know that ET exists.

The late astronomer Carl Sagan had a wonderful formula for measuring the truthfulness of any belief. Extraordinary claims, he said, demand extraordinary evidence.

The fact that so many are willing to believe so many impossible things with so little evidence is not comforting.

As long as I can remember my dad has always shared UFO type stuff with me he either read, saw on TV, or heard on the radio like Art Bell stuff. I always remember being pretty interested in it, but not sure if I believed in it or not. I do really remember liking the film independence day though lol.

Whenever my dad would bring up UFO's, he would always bring up the same story over and over as dads and older people like to do : ) When I was about 1 we moved to Fort Worth Texas from south texas, Del Rio. After the move we made alot of visits to south texas to visit family. My father is a police officer for Tarrant County in texas, so he is acustomed to driving at night or anytime of the day really. The story that ive heard about 200 times in my life from him goes like so: We were on our way back heading north from south texas. Anyone who has driven in south texas knows what the terrain is like, flat mosquite desert like land for as far as the eye can see. Kinda like the place where they filmed "The Hills have Eyes" except less hills lol. I guess it was about 1 or 2 in the morning I think i recall him saying when a massive shadow from the sky positioned itself over the car and kept pace with it. Then a huge bright green light illuminated the ground and the car from the above object. It then followed the car for about a 60 seconds. My mom , me and my little brother were all asleep, but my grandmother who came with us was awake. My father didnt want to take his eyes off teh road to try to stick his head out the window and look up , nor did he want to stop the car to look, i dont blame him. So he yelled at my grandmother to look up and see what it was. She is deeply religious and was terrified at the time, so she burried her head in her lap and started praying frantically. He kept insisting she look up and begging her , but she just ignored him and kept praying for her life it seemed. By the time he woke my mom up to look, the light was gone and no trace of where it went. He still hates her till this day for not simply looking up. This is a story ive heard hundreds of times but wasnt sure if i believed it or not.

Later in life when I was about 18 still living in Fort Worth, it was about 2 am when I noticed about 5 lights in the sky in the way off distance chasing each other at incredible speeds and g forces. I know what I saw but i still wasnt sure what to think, it was sooo far away that all i could make out were lights in the sky.

About 2 years ago when I was 22, me and my girlfriend moved to western colorado. The place was Grand Junction and its on the border of utah and within 50 miles of the Moab Desert. The first week i was there , we were driving down main st. about 8:30pm and I was driving. All of a sudden something came out of the sky, kinda like the enterprise on star trek when it goes into warp speed, except it came downward. It left the most vibrant luscious color of orange tracers I had ever seen in my life. I'm colorblind, but these tracers were so beautiful looking that I wanted to taste them lol. It was three tracers too, with the middle one being a little further ahead then the others. When the tracers stopped I saw something that was imprinted into my brain permenantley. A traingular ship with 3 circles underneath it, one on each corner. The only reason I could tell it was aship was because they stayed luminated for a split second and lit up the bottom of the ship. For that split second I could make out what looked like to me as some metal. It kinda looked like in the movies, kinda like the Borg Cube from star trek or the death star type of metal. The three circular discs on the bottom of it looked somewhat elevated from the bottom too. I only witnessed this for about half a second and then it went black, then maybe another half a second i could see the outline, then nothing. --This was enought to convice me my dads story was true. A week before i left that town I saw it again, except just the tracers ths time.

With all that said, I thnk you should share with ur kids, so that they may look at teh skies with some curiosity. I know i thought my dad was a story teller for a long time, but not anymore..

Star and flag. Just this week after watching "Seeing is Believing" on ABC I was grilled. Who are they. What do they want. Why don't they show themselves. And so forth. The person asking wanted to hear my analysis. I gave about a fifteen minute impromptu speech on the subject.
Wasn't great, but pretty OK.

Completely agree. This is damaging stuff.

Well in truth i did try to imply that, when kids are poorely informed that i believe it can be damaging.

One things for sure, if the children of those that use ATS are encouraged to enter the debate with an open mind and changeable opinions. Then this can only lead to another step closer to a more tolerant world.

Well, my friend, I'm actually 16

I've been doing a lot of reading on UFO disclosure and all that fun stuff, covered a wide variety of conspiracy theories, etc.

I personally don't think kids at my age can really fully understand without taking the time to research, they will either call you an idiot or crazy.

Kids at my age are harsh....

I only have a couple friends which i share this stuff with, other than that, I keep it to myself

I find I can hold conversations with adults on this topic and other topics better than with kids my age that are simply not educated enough on the topic.

Who are you replying to ?

This is so unreal...Early yesterday I responded to this thread, then late yesterday evening, I was hit with THIS:

Talk about the strangest timing ever!

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 also want to share but dont know how and when)

Excellent question I've long pondered.

I have no blood children but lots of 'God-sons and daughters' out of more than 3,000 Chinese students and quite a few American students as well as more than 1,000 counseling clients etc.

The best summary of what I'd share at this point is at:


I think the website's founder Guy Malone is the most informed, most accurate about all such and has had plenty of teen personal experiences.

1. Personally, coming from my Pentecostal Christian values orientation, I'd insure that kids understood as early as functional and workable for each child . . . that if ANY source does not authentically personally and convincingly affirm their belief that Christ came in the flesh and the basics of the Christian faith--then run the other direction. Do NOT take any rides nor comply in any way with such a person--even, if necessary--to the point of death.

2. EXPECT the globalists and the 'critters' to stage any number of long planned and technologically AND spiritually structured GREAT DECEPTIONS--looking good in every way as 'saviors' or some such of mankind and our planet. Do not be fooled. Their intent is still destruction, suffering, death on a grand scale.

3. Almighty God alone is our refuge, protector, safety, peace, Source. Eternity is a long time--best to end up on the right side.

4. Standard Christian Spiritual warfare techniques have proven effective with the critters in countless abduction situations--even in families where such have been occurring for generations.

5. EXPECT craft and/or critters and/or such in various combinations with humans and/or human looking 'aliens' to do fantastic things--magical things--supernatural things. (A) appearances do not always equal reality. (B) technologically/spiritually gifted critters with millenia to plan and set things up OUGHT to be expected to do fantastic things--even distort, lie about history with purported historical holographic videos.

6. KNOW WHO the Ultimate Authority is and KNOW HIM WELL. WALK AND TALK ROUTINELY with HIM.

7. Wisdom and discernment as well as hearing accurately HIS Voice will increasingly become crucial in our era.

8. Any individual and God are a majority.

9. This life is boot-camp . . . NOT the main event.

10. Choose Eternal life at all decision points.
