Children are pretty remarkable.
It’s true that at times trying to get a child to do something is almost impossible at times. Either they don’t follow the simple instructions you give them, or they take them too literally. It’s rather annoying at times, and it can really test your nerve as a parent.
But it’s just kids being kids, as annoying as it may be at times, they don’t know any better, and they’re having fun.
Plus, you were like that for your parents at one point in your life, so it’s only fair that it happens to you. It’s just a thing every parent must face.
You have to admit, being a parent can be rather funny at times, especially when you’re children do something hilarious.
Most parents believe that their children are special, but sometimes their children are more special than they first expected.
Some children are blessed with a very special gift.
There are some children who are blessed with the gift of a sixth sense, or other abilities most of us don’t have.
There’s a chance that if your child displays one of these signs, they could be an empath.
Being an empath doesn’t mean that you are gifted with powers of speaking to the dead or telepathy, but for some people, it seems as real as anything.
There are some people who might have naturally gifted abilities to sense what others are feeling, even if they are hiding it their true feelings.
Often times they develop super-human like qualities at an early age.
There’s a special place in everyone’s heart for someone who is truly empathic. That’s something we all agree on.
They have an uncanny ability to surprise you when you need them most, and it’s always a nice surprise.
Natural child empaths have powers of observation and perception. It’s almost like having your very own Sherlock Holmes.
But how do you know if your child is blessed with the gift?
Well here are 12 secret signs that your child may be developing their empathic abilities.
If your child has limited friends or none at all, it could be a sigh of them being empathic.
Unfortunately, for many empathic children isolation is a way of life.
They sense at an early age when people are being false or fake. Their isolation may also come from a place of safety since they can sense when people mean them harm.
2. Acting Out
If your child is acting out when your feeling angry or aggressive, your child could be picking up on your negative feelings.
They have not yet developed the cognitive ability to keep out negative emotions, which meas they share these feelings with you.
3. Very Intuitive
If your child is exceptionally intuitive then it could be a strong indicator of them being empathic.
Empathic children, seem to know the truth about everything without even fully understanding it.
Their powers of intuition may include being able to tell when parents are about to divorce, if an elder is fatally ill, or perhaps when a stranger means to harm them.
4. Alone Time
They enjoy being alone because being alone means having a break from the emotions surrounding them.
They often go to a place where they can have some peace and calm, especially after a chaotic experience in the public.
Children like this may go to their bedrooms after a long day at school.
5. Great Listeners
They’re surprisingly good listeners.
Sometimes adults just need to vent or just talk too much, but they’re always there to listen to you.
They often take an innocent and plain look at the world, giving you perspective on an issue you wouldn’t usually get to see.
Empathic children are capable of great compassion.
A natural child empath is often the first to volunteer aid when someone needs help. They are able to sense what another person might be feeling, so they do what they’d naturally want someone else to do if they were in the same situation.
7. Family Gatherings
Empath children tend to steer clear of family gatherings as there are is too much for them to deal with.
They become aware of the attention of others, and family members tend to smother young children with love and affection which can be too much to handle.
8. Books And Movies
They love books and movies, and they have a great affect on your child.
They will not read a book or watch a movie the same way as other children. Instead, they get so roped into the emotional narrative and the story, making them feel they are actually living in the shoes of the character.
9. Don’t Belong
Natural Empath children feel like they are misfits, or that they don’t belong.
Empathic children have difficulty connecting with others if they aren’t on the same emotional level, which often makes them feel like they’re left out of the group.
10. Hyper Stimulation
They’re affected by large crowds of people as they are exposed to every sound, argument, shout, laugh, cry, and conversation in a crowd.
Being exposed to this environment for extended periods can be exhausting for the child.
They can spot a lie a mile away.
Empathic children are very perceptive of body language, the tone of voice and intentions behind it.
12. Deep Feelings
Their feelings are on a much deeper level than most people.
Many empathic children are hyper-aware of their own emotions, which means they tend to bottle those feelings up in hopes to contain everything.
Where others may be able to shrug off a feeling, empathic children tend to feel the full effect of a single emotion.
