8 Ways To Tell If You’re Raising An Indigo Child

By  | 

Those of you who tuned into the new Bravo show Extreme Guide To Parenting may be thanking your lucky stars that you don’t have an Indigo child on your hands. One of the main characters, Shira, claims that her son is one – which basically just seems to mean she overlooks all of his jerk behavior, like telling her her cooking sucks, he hates her, and he wants to chop people’s heads off.

This got me thinking – my toddler is kind of a jerk, could he be an Indigo Child, too? Is he awash in an indigo aura? Is he part of the second coming of some super species that will save the planet? Or is he just a little 3-year-old asshole?

I decided to take a little test and thought I would share it with all of you. Maybe your “spirited child” is actually one of the people that Nancy Ann Tappe was talking about when she wrote her book, Understanding Your Life Through Color. She’s responsible for coining the term Indigo Child, when she noticed that 80 percent of the children born after 1980 had a new deep blue colored auric field. Um, okay lady.

Does your child have a deep blue colored auric field? The following are some qualities of an Indigo Child. Take the test with me and find out!

1. They know they’re special.

“They are born feeling and knowing they are special and should be revered.”

Check. My child has had a holier-than-thou attitude since birth. When we first started giving him solids, he would wave the food that he didn’t like away like a King excusing a jester that didn’t make him laugh.

2. They know they belong here.

“An indigo knows they belong here as they are and expect you to realize it as well.”

Check. He often wears his t-shirts inside out and wonders why I have a problem with it. Same goes with underwear. He hates underwear.

3. They are more confident.

“These children are more confident and have a higher sense of self-worth.”

I asked him what he was once, because I was writing an article about mixed-race children and the strange questions people ask you. He answered, “Iron Man.” Check.
