I will definitely (actually, already have) discussed the possibility of non-terrestrial beings with my kids.
My middle child has floored me with some very interesting 'dreams' that she has had. Sure, these dreams can be spurred on by outside influences. I
understand the psychology behind them but I'll simply tell you a few facts that made it pretty hard to belive she simply made it up.
First, she was 5.
Second, she explained them in extremely vivid detail.
The first dream was one where she said she was taken out into our solar system. She was shown all of the planets. There were creatures on most of
them. Not like 'we know' she said. "Just light and stuff". Okaaaaay.
Then she goes on to explain that this person with her (she didn't say there was a person with her until about this part of the story. After the
solar system trip) asked her if she wanted to visit his home. She said yes and the person touched something and a brown hole appeared in the sky and
they went into it. She said his home was made up of a bunch of pretty rocks. There was a glowing rock in the wall and a window.
She said that he talked with her for a long time and that was the end of her dream. Unfortunately I cannot remember what she said that they talked
about. Sucks getting older. Wish I would have written it down now.
Anyway, one of the things she did say was that he explained how they travelled. That they simply created a hole and went through. Then she went on
to blow my mind by saying that "You know daddy, there are a LOT of universes out there. If another universe was to collide with ours it would wipe
us all out. But our friends would come and help us."
Okay, that was dream 1. Dream 2 was a little freakier for me.
She said that she was sleeping in her room. All of a sudden there was a fire alarm and a voice was saying "get out, you must get out." I asked
here where we were. She said in our house but not this house. I didn't understand that but I do now. We have since moved out of our home state.
(That's if I take her dream literally which I honestly don't know. I'm a logical man that enjoys his science fiction but...well, you know.)
Anyway, she says that it wasn't a fire but a war. She said we all went outside and our friends were there to save us. They picked us all up and
took us to their home. She said while we were flying away (this is what got me) that she heard all of the animals screaming and crying. Her eyes
filled with tears and she started to cry pretty hard here. I told her to stop telling me the dream at that point.
So, take it as you will. I'm not saying that she didn't make it up. Or that it was simply an active imagination. I'm just saying that I decided
after that to talk with my kids about the possibilities of life outside of this planet. It's been 2 years now since she told me that dream.
