Possibly, but maybe not the way you think.
Young children have a natural ability to see and even speak to spirits, sense energies, ect. If they grow up in a place that has a lot of paranormal activity, they could possibly become more aware of it than someone who doesnt. However, sometimes it can be a use it or lose it policy. If these gifts aren't nutured by parents, they often go away. Sometimes they come back as they get older, and sometimes they never do.
