It was relatively apparent when I was little that I was different, but my parents tried to stifle it, as they turned away to my family history and are very Catholic. I'm 21 and have been on the path to understanding my family's history, practices, and abilities, basically understanding to explain and fine tune who I am, and while I'm trying to learn to figure it out myself, my five year old niece is starting to display a lot of the signs/behaviors I did when it came to these things, and her mother, my cousin, is asking me how to help her figure these things out so that she doesn't grow up stifled like I did. Problem is, I'm still trying to learn and grow and figure it all out myself. Any ideas/tips for raising a special child?
