    Who determines who is "indigo"? Do they actually ask children these questions or is it up to teachers or what? I was always so right brained that some teachers thought I was some gifted kid who needed to be moved forward and put into advanced subjects, while others thought I didn't get it and needed to be held back. There were few that were in between on the subject. They could just call me a "right brained" kid. There are thousands of kids and thousands of gifts to go with them. You could have an indigo kid in there who is hard of hearing or has dyslexia.. WHAT DOES IT MEAN!!!!

    Exactly! In my light research into indigos, a lot of it was about various schemes devised to fleece as many as possible. Rather sad actually. I understand the appeal in people wanting to find comfort in parapsychological science, but wow, seeing how many scam stories there were, it was certainly disheartening.

    Let me just say I strongly agree with these statements.

    You say that like it's a bad thing. That sounds like a fantastic idea - social skills are critical for pretty much any career you can imagine, as well as a happy life outside of a career....improving weak spots is a much wiser idea than celebrating real, harmful weaknesses as being "different". Not to be confused with being mean, at all, but some amount of realism is necessary for a good outcome in the long run...

    Realism yes, unhealthy and negative critisism no.
    I know which i have seen more of in this thread.
    My point would be to concentrate on the area's that children excel in.
    Yes you may work on the areas they have difficulty with too but to put too much focus on these areas of difficulty is a recipie for disaster.
    And how silly of you to think that social skills are "critical" for pretty much any career you can imagine.
    We are in the age of da internetz.

    I agree with this. You just have to find a good balance.

    lol... I suppose there are a few jobs where you can earn money over the internet, but they are few and far between. In the real world, even for a job where you never interact with other humans (rare enough), you will still have to pass an interview where most interviewers still care about rudimentary social skills. Even just communicating your own brilliance to an interviewer falls under "social skills". So yes, social skills are still critical despite the age of the internets.

    The idea of the Indigo children is a New Age one; Indigo children are thought to be bringers of the New Age and Higher Consciousness. Imagine... it's not a far cry from a bunch of little Jesus's running around. I think these are the children Smileyman and I are referring to. Hippy Dippy parents label them as such, which resembles a twisted form of the same drive a parent might have to lift their children up to "Honor Roll" student.
