ESP in children??

Seriously?? Everytime I get on the phone my children know EXACTLY who I'm talking to, whenever I am on the phone, and who is calling even though they do not know how to read yet. This is starting to really bug me because if I'm talking to a family member the kids'll be "I wanna talk to ...." whoever I'm talking to. Anyone else have kids like this?
By the way, mine are 5 years old and 4 years old, and the baby is 7 months old and will lean in whenever I'm on the phone, or squeal loudly to be heard when I'm not holding her so that whoever I'm talking to, she is talking to them too.

  • They probably know based on how you talk to whoever, what is said, etc.

  • Lol my bfs phone is really loud and he might not know it, but I can hear the person on the phone without straining. Which is why I always leave a room if I'm getting sensitive info. I never know if my phone is one that seems to have a speaker phone built into the regular speaker lol.

  • My mom always told a story about how I had a dream about an accident my dad was in, while it was happening. My son has this uncanny ability to move the exact direction I need to go or to get out of the way by moving to the spot I need to be in. I tell him if he can figure out how he does it, he will be a millionaire someday.

  • @ MammaG, first off, the term "esp" was a catchphrase, not a means of showing that I'm delusional in anyway, calling people's beliefs delusional is not a very productive frame of mind. As the rules of CafeMom state, this site is a place for constructive critisism, not destructive. You will never find...say me, on here bashing another mom's belief system. I'm a Baptist Christian, but you will never hear me telling another mom that her beliefs are ... to use your words "delusional". Some people believe that ESP is a legitiment mental ability, while other denounce the existance of ESP, or any other paranormal abilities. If you had left out the first part then your answer could have won the best answer award, however, since you have not followed the rules of CafeMom I am going to be forced to report your answer to the administrators. Next time, word your answers better.

  • Well, there is no such thing as ESP, so even if anyone thinks their child has it, they are delusional. Second, when you are on the phone, it is exciting for a child and they want to be involved, regardless of who it is. They probably assume you are taking to someone who calls often and/or they are basing their assumptions on your conversation.
