Most young children are naturally empathic. But the majority of them lose the ability over the years as they grow up and become adults. From there it has been estimated that 10% of humans are empaths.

Both of my kids are now teenagers and their empath skills are growing very strong. But I personally think that a lot of that is because my wife and I support their abilities and are helping guide them through this. Conversely, our society and pretty much every religion does it's best to shut down empathy. We all know the typical stories of parents telling their kids that they really don't have an imaginary friend or that the bumps and whispers in the night are just the house creaking. That teaching moment training kids to disbelieve what they hear and sees sticks, and kids then begin to block their natural abilities. Whereas if you tell your kids you believe what they tell you and support them, their abilities will grow.

But to get back to your point, my daughter was the most obvious. I didn't know what an empath was back then, but I knew she had some unusual gifts and sensitivities. When she had her 1st birthday we had about 40 parents and kids over to celebrate. And she couldn't handle all of the attention and noise from everyone so after an outburst of tears we let her spent the rest of her party playing quietly in her room. We now realize that she couldn't handle the energy of everyone at her party. It was too much for her. And then while she was a little older but not yet able to talk, we used to hear her talking to no one in her room at night. We'd find her sitting up in bed staring at the ceiling having a very detailed conversation in baby talk with something unseen. And it got stranger from there. When she got old enough to talk, we would hear about her seeing ghosts all of the time. 

I would say probably the thing you will notice the most with an empath kid is that they are very sensitive and introverted. They don't like to go out places and get fussy or anxious when out in public.

Interesting. I've never heard a story before about in womb empathy. Although that makes sense.

I discovered that my oldest had gifts when I walked into a room where he was the only one present and he was talking with my grandmother whom passed away years prior. He never knew her. He actually told me who she was.

My middle child was always fascinated by ghosts and paranormal. I discussed with him that gifts are sometimes given to people. He shared with me how he can see events in the future.

My youngest son is 10 weeks old. I knew he was gifted through the use of my gifts. On the day and first week of his birth, I had an entourage of family members visiting him in the hospital and once we got home. I actually could hear them speak to him. In fact, I was so tired that I “kicked them out” of the hospital room....lol Eventually, he started acknowledging their presence by smiling and cooing.

@spiritualskies:

I've read many books on this subject. And while not all babies and young children will grow up to be empaths, there seems to be consensus in psychic circles that all kids have psychic abilities at that age. This is why so many young kids see ghosts and monsters that their parents cannot see. I recently finished a book that said there is scientific evidence that children's brains work at a different frequency than adults. And they point to that fact as the reason why they are naturally in tune to spirits. As I noted earlier, my first steps in believing in ghost visitations was realized when I watched my 10 month old daughter sitting in bed at night carrying on a very animated conversation with something she saw in the corner of the ceiling. She was chit-chatting away and laughing. It was a very high energy friendly experience to watch. 

There are good and not so good spirits that will visit your children. And the not so good ones mostly mean that they make your kids uncomfortable. As my daughter grew older she would describe a lot of spirits coming at her from across the room that would scare her since they lunged at her. But I now believe that since she is so psychically gifted that these ghosts that came at her back then likely just wanted to communicate with her. From what I understand earth bound ghosts are desperate to make contact with the living and seek out anyone with medium abilities. But that can be very scary for kids. My son who is also an empath but is not quite the medium talent that my daughter is, would see ghosts appear all of the time. But they wouldn't chase after him. He said the creepiest example of what would happen is that he'd get out of the shower on a few occasions to see a girl ghost standing there. In fact, when they were both under 10, both my kids claimed to mostly see ghosts of children. 

I will say that kids handle this pretty well. This is especially the case if you teach them not to be irrationally scared of what they see. But the challenge with being an empath as a kid is the teenage transition to adulthood. As we all know, empaths pick up on emotional energy and there is an overwhelming amount of peer energy going on in the 6th-9th grade years. They are also more at risk at that age for negative spirit attachments that take advantage of teens when their vibrations lower. And then you throw all of the hormones into the mix and it's just a rough period of time to be an empath.

For your young child I would recommend listening regularly at night to the baby monitor. If you have one of those camera baby monitors that would be even better. And just watch/listen for abnormal nightmares or fear reactions while your child is sleeping. In knowing that you're quick to come in and comfort them will make them feel better. And for whatever reason my daughter had a real tough time with scary spirits in the 2-3 years. We had her sleeping in our room almost every night back then.

I don't know the statistics on likelihood of psychic abilities being passed on to children. But my guess is that it's a pretty high percentage.

To answer a few of your previous questions:

* I indicated that my youngest son has gifts because he reacted to spirits visiting him. He continues to do this. I know he is reacting to spirits since my wife and I can see, hear, or feel them as well.

* My older sons don’t talk about it much. I allow them an open door to discuss as they need to. They live normal lives. They are highly active in the community and at school.

* I maintain open communication with my family. I was the first to start talking about it. This open communication lead to my wife and my mother being more open to discuss their gifts. They did not have the opportunity to be open about their gifts when they were growing up. Through this dialogue, I also discovered that my grandfather also had gifts.

Yes.....she has the ability to see, hear, and feel spirits. She also has the ability to see auras. She has the ability to be telepathic, but that one is not as developed as the other gifts.

The things to look for that I have seen in my sons

My baby will stare past me or away from me to smile or cry. He will also coo, laugh at night when we are out of the bedroom and he is resting in his crib. You can tell something has his attention in all of the incidents. At that point, I will look or listen to verify.

My older sons would talk softly to themselves. When I started to listen, I could hear them talking to someone else. During one of these incidents, I heard my oldest acknowledge my grandmother and called her by name. When I entered the room, I could smell her perfume which was a distinct rose perfume. The perfume is how she tells me she visits me. I then gave him several pictures of family and non family members. He was  able to pic her out of the approx 10 pictures and say that is Grammy, whom I spoke with. As I said prior, my Grandmother passed away years prior to him. He never saw a picture of her prior to that date due to us living away from the area for my work as well as divorce issues with my ex wife. My oldest was approx 6 years old at the time. He is now 16.

I hope that helps.

@empathdad, that's very cool stuff. I like to think one of my favorite grandmother's had been visiting my daughter, but I have no idea. I also had an extra special grandfather that had passed. But it's hard to say who it was. That's cool that you got confirmation. And it is not uncommon for deceased relatives to pop in and visit. When children are babies they are still pretty connected to the spirit world/heaven where they came from.

@spiritualskies, this is kind of off topic. But something you said made me want to comment on this. There are definitely entities that can mimic your loved ones. I've read many books and articles where people stated that demons often show themselves as a ghost child to trick you. I personally have had about 5 spirits in my home call my name using the voice of people who I know. And they weren't imitating deceased people I know, they were imitating my son, wife, and Dad calling my name from across the house when I was the only one home. It scared the crap out of me. I also had on another occasion when I was alone at home heard a woman humming a song in the kitchen. My dogs were nearby and were all bent out of shape with hair up on end. I went in the kitchen to investigate and the singing stopped although I could smell perfume.

It's a little frustrating to me since I rarely see ghosts but have a very keen clairaudient ability. So I hear things but can't really investigate since I can't see things. Anyway, I wanted to share a little of this with you eventhough it's a little off topic.

The theory that I have heard from many respected psychics is that when we are born our spirit accepts a mission or life quest. Before coming here through birth we pick a support group that includes many spirit guides. And often times those spirit guides are relatives or very close friends from a prior life. And after birth and early on as a baby, we are still very connected to the other side and can see and converse with our spirit guide support group and our close friends and relatives who stop by to visit. But as kids get to speaking age they lose most of that connection to heaven and forget the mission. At that moment it's supposed to be a free will experiment where the mission assignment is forgotten and the baby grows up and makes free will choices to try to be who they were meant to be. Some people grow up and nail it and check all of the boxes of their life assignment. While others never come close to realizing their assignment. It's very fascinating. In any event, if a baby is talking happily to an empty room, it is very likely that they are communicating with their favorite relatives and support group from the other side. If the energy feels good to you and your baby is happy during those talks with the unseen, I wouldn't worry about it being anything negative.

And sorry that I got a little wordy-again!

P.S.- There is a really cool tv show that used to be on about kids who passed through baby-hood and still remembered their past life and relatives and friends from the other side. This is very rare since again once babies can talk those memories of past life and their current life assignment are usually intentionally lost. I'm not sure where you can watch episodes, but the stories will blow you away. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3107588/

I think the thing with babies is that they are new, pure souls. They are brand new, and their energy sparkles and shines. They have very pure clean souls as they are too new here to have the scars of life that we all get as we get older. Their auras are perfect and shine with an awesome light. And I think because of that, they are appealing to many things good and not so good. I also believe that babies and young children get a spiritual version of armed guards when they are so young, innocent, and pure. These guards may be angels, spirit guides, or close relatives from the other side that visit and stay with them to keep them safe.

The not so good things in the spirit world do not like loud noises. They prefer dark, quiet rooms. So I also think babies and children have a stronger ability to see spirits so that they can sound the alarm if anything approaches them that makes them uncomfortable. I don't know about you, but the blood curtling high volume cry of a baby gives me an instant headache and makes me want to get the heck out of the area. Anyone been stuck on an airplane with a baby crying nearby? It's very loud and unsettling. And I think that is their tool to ward off the not so good spirits as well. And at the very least they sound the alarm to get you in there to protect them.
