Internationally recognized psychic and star of A&E’s hit show Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal, Chip Coffey shares his personal story of discovering his gift at a young age and offers valuable advice for nurturing and embracing psychic ability.

NO one knows more about psychic kids than Chip Coffey, and no expert on psychic kids is better known throughout the world. These kids are widely misunderstood, misjudged, and misdiagnosed. In Growing Up Psychic, Chip Coffey offers indispensable information for anyone who interacts with these extraordinary youngsters—parents, educators, medical professionals, mental health clinicians, members of the clergy, paranormal investigators—and adults who faced the challenges of growing up psychic.

In Growing Up Psychic, drawing on his firsthand experience and the true stories of kids he has worked with and helped, Chip Coffey shows you how to:

• Determine if a child is really psychic—as opposed to simply imaginative or
seeking attention
• Identify the different kinds of psychic abilities kids (and adults) might have
• Gain control over when and how psychic information is received
• Safely connect with others in the psychic community
• Deal with skeptics and disbelievers

“Read Chip Coffey’s book to learn about an astonishing, inspiring, unexplained propensity of the human mind.”
—from the foreword written by Dr. Raymond Moody, author of Life After Life

This is usually seen when the person is affable and suddenly becomes extremely quiet. • Someone who is normally very active suddenly becomes isolated. • Changes in sleep patterns. • Sudden weight loss or gain. • Changes in attitude and behavior, usually becoming hostile. • Suddenly beginning to curse a lot when that is out of character. •

may misjudge children who claim to have psychic abilities or paranormal experiences simply because they are unwilling to accept the possibility that these types of phenomena are real and valid. Skeptics are all around us, and, personally, I don’t normally try to defend what I do or attempt to make believers of doubters. At this point in my life, there’s not much people could say that would hurt me, and there’s certainly nothing they could say to make me doubt myself. But it’s taken a while for

and asked me if I would be interested in working on a documentary about helping psychic kids and their families as I had done with Savannah and her mom in Las Vegas. Would I be interested? You bet! Later that year, we filmed the Psychic Kids documentary at a remote sleepaway camp in Massachusetts where we had very limited telephone and Internet services. We were pretty much cut off from the rest of the world. I knew from the beginning that what we were doing would be both groundbreaking and
