I think that children are able to see things, and feel things that as you mature, you tend to block out, because it's not the "normal" thing to see or feel. I can remember things that I saw as a child, that as an adult, the first impulse would be to discount it as something that was not real.

It would not surprise me if children were proven to be more sensitive to such things than adults. Obviously because they are more innocent and have not had it driven into their heads that such things do not exist.
I think it also may have something to do with the fact that children are not as consumed with the mundane aspects of everyday life the way adults are.
Lets face it, most of us are beaten down by job stress, the news, rush hour traffic, and worrying about getting the bills paid on time. Most of us are just too tired and distracted to take notice of the paranormal activities that probably take place all around us.
But not the children. Without all the constant demands on their attention, it would not surprise me if they were more sensitive to the supernatural than adults are.
