Our spirits get "recycled." It's true. We keep coming back until we achieve perfection, and in the course of a day, think about the number of people who are far from perfect... they'll be coming back again! (Like the person who cut you off in traffic, or a rude neighbor, or a nasty relative). Why? Because we all have lessons to learn. On a related note, you'll know if your child has come back if they have a talent.
If a child has memories of a past life that can be proven by those who still live, then why wouldn't a child carry on some of the talents they acquired during a previous life? They would.

So, what is the definition of a child prodigy? A child prodigy is someone who at an early age masters one or more skills at an adult level. One heuristic for classifying prodigies is: a prodigy is a child, typically younger than 15 years old, who is performing at the level of a highly trained adult in a very demanding field of endeavor.
One such child prodigy was in the news a couple of years ago: Kieran Williamson from the U.K. At just 9 years old, has incredible passion for two things in life; football and painting.
Some information from his website about Kieron: Kieron was a typical energetic toddler with a passion for mud and water. He loved riding his bike and throwing stones into the sea and every available puddle. The walk to and from school was more like an assault course for Kieron and he would often appear out of the bushes with a stick or bug in hand. Today Kieron is one of the world's youngest, globally reaching artists. His recent work has seen bids from over 35 different countries. He has over 1800 fans on his mailing list, featured all over YouTube and the world's media websites..... See his work at his website: http://www.kieronwilliamson.com/
At five years old he began painting like an impressionist painter. When you look at his works, you'll be amazed. I'm convinced that this child, Kieran Williamson of England, lived before as a painter. You will be convinced, too. Five year olds simply don't have this ability (now he's 9)- it had to come from somewhere else, and that was likely a past lifetime.
