Wow...what an adorable and precious little kid!
On one hand, I'm glad the family is sharing this "ability" publicly because I think this is a phenomenon that should be discussed and studied openly. On the other hand, I'm worried that this small child could easily become a target of exploitation. If my child were gifted in such a way, my instinct would likely be to protect and shelter him, keep him out of the public spotlight ... but then again, if we keep these kinds of abilities secret how can we ever expect to learn and study them?
Children are most definitely in tune with things that most adults are not. I recently became pregnant and my children do not know yet. But my daughter - who is three - has started talking, daily, about wanting a baby sister and when is her baby sister going to be here. Never much interest in dolls or babies before. Coincidence? Maybe... or maybe she senses what is going on. I shared that story at the OB/GYN office and the nurse told me that in her experience with the ob practice, siblings "knowing" about a mom being pregnant was extremely common and, in her words, "pretty spooky."
Thanks for posting the article. This is a fascinating subject.
