Many years ago I was visiting friends and playing with their year or so old daughter. We were sitting in the floor playing with wooden building blocks, me sitting to her left. She would stack and unstack them and, every so often for reasons that make sense only to children, she would find one unacceptable and hand it to me. I would accept it and add it to my stack. One time, however, she handed the block off to her right and seemed quite surprised when it fell to the floor. She looked to her right, babbled for a few seconds in toddler talk, then picked up the block and carefully handed it to me. After that, when she picked up a block, she would look to her right for a second before turning and giving it to me. For all the world, it looked to me like she saw someone sitting to her right that I couldn't see, and that she was mad at him because he hadn't caught the block she was handing over.

To respond to one of the earlier posters, I think it does seem plausible that young children can see light frequencies that adults can't. It's well established that teenagers can hear sounds in ranges that adults can't.

To respond to another of the earlier posters, the older brother of one of the friends in the first story was involved in an accident in his teens where chemicals of some kind got sprayed in his eyes. For the next few months he wore glasses with weird purple-ish lenses so dark you could barely see his eyes. Normal room lighting irritated his eyes and the black lights we liked to play with were downright painful. But he could navigate through the house with no lights on and he liked to go out on dark nights and look at the sky, where he could see stars so dim they were invisible to the rest of us. Every once in a while, he'd take off his glasses and stare at an odd corner of the room for a few minutes. I always meant to ask him what he saw that was so fascinating.

I think children are able to see... it reminds me of something that happened to my grandpa. One day my grandpa was sitting in the living room on the couch watching tv my little cousin who was 5-7 at the time came walking down the hallway into the living room right away she stopped and kept looking at a recliner chair across from my grandpa... She was staring really hard with a curious look on her face my grandpa saw her looking at the recliner and asked her what's wrong? She said who's that man? Pointing at the recliner....my grandpa didn't see anyone sitting there.. So he told her what do u mean? No one is there... But she kept staring at the chair still as if she clearly saw someone sitting there.. She went outside to play and my grandpa immediately thought of his father, my great grandfather, who died many many years ago the spot where the recliner was..was his favorite spot to sit.

Kids are definitely more sensitive to this kind of things, as are animals/household pets. As we mature and become more worn in by society and our surroundings, I think we lose touch with that innocence we had as kids, when everything was within reason and seeing a ghost was as simple an experience as seeing an actual person, hence why the kids in these stories always state what they saw as straightfoward as they do.

Some scary crap they come out with though!

This is not a personal belief nor a field I am very fluent in (other members will I am sure give a more detailed description) but according to several believes on Earth we all have ten eyes and these are what give us the ability to perceive spiritual beings - not our actual physical eyes.

Among these (and generally considered the fifth) is an eye responsible for the dream-state and perception of other planes of existence. It matters when talking of children's perception of other-worldly entities because said eye is located at the frontal fontanel - which is the soft spot of the cranium in babies. Some consider that this allows children to have a more sensitive perception of the spiritual world.

No, I've never had such an experience, because I still have no children, but are you sure that the father of your wife did not say this to the little girl. Or maybe you and your wife talked between the two of you about your father in advance and your little daughter heard something but you didn't notice it?

Hi OP. I recently had a very similar experience with my three year old daughter. Here's my thread about it.

Children are definitely more open than most adults to the other side of things, that's for sure. Especially small children.
