Indigo children

The term refers to children who ostensibly have extraordinary and supernatural abilities. Scientifically it is not proven that those children have any abilities. The term appeared in the 1970s. The idea was developed by Nancy Ann Tappe, Jan Tobber and Lee Carroll. “The Indigo Child is a boy or girl who displays a new and unusual set of psychological attributes, revealing a pattern of behavior generally undocumented before. This pattern has singularly unique factors that call for parents and teachers to change their treatment and upbringing of these kids to assist them in achieving balance and harmony in their lives, and to help them avoid frustration” (Lee Carroll & Jan Tober).
