The Complete Idiot's Guide to Indigo Children, by Dir., MA Ed. Psy., SRMT, Wendy H. Chapman and Carolyn Flynn. The term “Indigo Children” entered the lexicon in 1982 when psychic and author Nancy Ann Tappe talked about the coming Indigo Age in her book, Understanding Your Life Through Color. In this guide, the authors explain why Indigo Children require lots of attention: they tend to think holistically and intuitively, and they process emotions differently. Parenting these high-level children is a challenge, and their years in school may be challenging. Wendy H. Chapman is the director of the Metagifted Education Resource Organization, where she is an enlightenment teacher for academically and/or metaphysically gifted children, Indigo Children, and their families. Carolyn Flynn is the coauthor of The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Creative Visualization, The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Oracles, and The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Tarot Spreads Illustrated. She is the mother of girl/boy Indigo twins.
