"They know more of who they are and what they want," she explains. "They're not as willing to conform to the world the way it is."

The term indigo was coined by a parapsychologist who developed a system of determining people's personalities by the color of their auras.

The concept of indigo children isn't confined to Houston or even Texas. There is a growing number of people around the world who believe the next step in human evolution is here.

Have you heard of "unschooling"?
http://www.unschooling.com
"I am beginning to suspect all elaborate and special systems of education. They seem to me to be built upon the supposition that every child is a kind of idiot who must be taught to think. Whereas, if the child is left to himself, he will think more and better, if less showily. Let him go and come freely, let him touch real things and combine his impressions for himself, instead of sitting indoors at a little round table, while a sweet-voiced teacher suggests that he build a stone wall with his wooden blocks, or make a rainbow out of strips of coloured paper, or plant straw trees in bead flower-pots. Such teaching fills the mind with artificial associations that must be got rid of, before the child can develop independent ideas out of actual experience." -- Anne Sullivan


Yoga for Kids?
http://www.childrensyoga.com/frames.htm
Helping Our Children During Times of Crisis : In these times of crisis, grief, and uncertainty, children, being sensitive beings, will be especially aware of the pain and confusion surrounding them, though they may not express their feelings directly. When you notice a ripe opportunity to open a space for talking, perhaps after something they say in reference to what is happening in our country and our world, open the space in your heart first, so that truth may prevail in your words. I am Shakta Kaur Khalsa, creator of childrensyoga.com, and author of Fly Like A Butterfly: Yoga For Children. As a long-time Kundalini Yoga teacher and Montessori educator, I realized that children could effortlessly reap the benefits of yoga, as long as it could speak to them.

Indigo essences?
http://www.indigoessences.com
"The Indigo Essences are gem and crystal essences which have been made to help the new children through this time of major adjustment. The site also includes information on simple ways to use the essences. The stones used in the Indigo Essences all relate to the common themes of childhood, especially to releasing the fears which prevent us from being the loving, carefree, sparks of light we really are. Several of the essences will also help with the sometimes uncomfortable feelings we get in our bodies as our energy changes and becomes lighter. The essences will help very sensitive children feel safe and comfortable in their physical bodies even though the energies around them may not be easy to deal with.
