Maybe it's the parents telling a story, using their unknowing child as a mean for attention.
If a child is indicating a past-life in some way, which in itself seems inexplicable, how can him writing his name by age 3 be any more implausible? Once you've left the ordinary behind who's to say what is over the top? How high is the top?
There are too many compelling and confirmable aspects of these stories for me to remain unconvinced.
When it's confirmed that a person with the specific name, dying in a specific town at a specific time, with a particular illness or injury or accident which a child accurately described; and if the child (or his parents for that matter) would have no "normal" way of knowing such information, it's pretty obvious to me that there's more going on than science is able to prove.
