Mollie Painton, Psy.D.

Encouraging Your Child's Spiritual Intelligence

Explore the many ways that spiritual children express their unique and powerful views. Any parent whose child has ever had an imaginary friend, talked with a deceased relative, or felt the pain of others will find guidance and inspiration in Encouraging Your Child's Spiritual Intelligence.

In this compelling and unique book, Mollie Painton, Psy.D., a well-known child therapist, introduces readers to several spiritually gifted children, the remarkably wise young people she has helped in her private practice. Dozens of stories from every branch on the spiritual tree of life help parents and caregivers understand how to become better companions for guiding their spiritually-gifted children on the journey of life.

This warmly engaging book includes tests, tips, and advice for parents, pediatricians, and teachers on how to support children through good times and bad, cope with the challenges of giftedness in many forms, help children develop their gifts, discover if they are spiritually gifted adults, and determine how effective they are as 'spiritual partners' for children.
