The previous chapter included discussion of how the Indigo Child concept has been approached by academics as a symptom of changes in society, particularly in our conception of the “child”. We noted that Whedon (2009) links the concept to increasing ADD and ADHD diagnoses and high school shootings in the USA, both of which she claims led to a monstering of the child by the public. She describes the Indigo Child concept as a “re-inscription of meaning” that restores the child’s status in society (Whedon 2009, 61). Whedon’s explanation highlights the restorative element of the Indigo Child concept: the “child” as an object in discourse is metaphorically healed of its monstrous characterization. However, Whedon did not look in-depth at particular expressions of becoming, or identifying as, Indigo, nor does she consider how Indigo Children understand illness, disease, and healing as a part of this transformation.
