Tyler is real and very authentic

Tyler Henry does some amazing reads. I haven't seen him in person but as I watch his his reads of celebrities they really seem authentic. Some criticisms are that he feeds off of people's energy. We all do that but people's energy doesn't reveal the fine details of events in people's lives. Even with celebrities. Another criticism that relates to this is that of course Tyler knows all of these things, he's in Hollywood. Yes, but he's very young. Very young. Younger than a lot of people who were super famous back when their show, movies etc, were at their prime. As for whether the show is appropriate for children, I would say that it really depends. Every family should know their children and whether they would do well with the idea of communication with those that have transitioned to the next plane. Sometimes children have paranormal experiences which can keep them in fear until they have the opportunity to make their own decisions. Whether a person believes depends on their own spirituality and beliefs. However, when one has a genuine experience with a loved one that has passed away, it can be a beautiful and touching experience.

Vague information, feeding off emotion

While Tyler is charming, it’s not hard to figure out that he is a highly intelligent person that can read people easily and feeds off their emotions. He gives vague information that can apply to anyone after a bit of assessment (ie while he scribbles). He uses the same information over and over depending on who he talks to. And how he came to realize his “gift” is not a story very different from many children who claim to see or talk to a passing family member. I don’t think he is authentic. Saw him live and was very disappointed!!
