Hello ATS. I was actually looking through some old family photographs earlier and it got me thinking about my childhood, and a nice setting for a thread here. Hoorah!

I remember being quite an erratic and hyperactive child, and to be honest a little odd, but more so I remember being absolutely terrified of ghosts. I'm not even sure if I believe in them, but at the same time I'm not a skeptic.

As far back as my memory serves me I remember being absolutely petrified of 'upstairs' in the home I grew up in. The house wasn't particularly creepy. It was an end terraced council house and possibly 40-50 years old at the time I lived there. I couldn't imagine there would be much history prior to our time there that would serve as the perfect back drop to any paranormal activity.

I would sit on the stairs at night crying when my mother put me to bed because I was scared of being in my bedroom myself. My mother would even come with me to brush my teeth. I had this daily routine, when my mother was at work and I got home from primary school, I would grab as much food as possible and run into the living room and sit on the same seat beside the window until my mother got home because I thought it was the safest place in the house from whatever was upstairs. I would hear noises the whole time, be it my imagination or not I heard noises. I heard banging, footsteps, knocking and I can bet you most of them were the neighbours given it was an end terrace, however I just knew something odd was happening. Some of those noises were definitely above me, I thought.

Anyway, while looking through these photographs I asked my mother what she thought about my 'paranormal paranoia' and more specifically the creepy house we grew up in. Her response surprised me. She told me that she never really liked the house and that something was creepy about my bedroom. I always wondered why I had the biggest bedroom in the house, well now I know! Then I asked if she had any idea why I was so scared of ghosts and at what age it began. Well, it turns out we moved into that house when I was 2, and in the first week my mother had to move my cot into her room because I would scream throughout the night, and the morning after my first night in my mothers room she picked me up out the cot said to me "good morning, did you have a nice sleep" to which I responded with "I was speaking to the mannies". I should highlight that 'mannies' where I am from means 'men', or more than one man. Discussing it now she finds it creepy as hell, but at the time she brushed it off as nonsense, something silly a toddler would say. Moving forward however she made note that something always bothered me in that house and I never truly settled, not till we moved out when I was 12. I could go into detail about all my ghostly recollections in that house however that would defeat the premise of the thread.

I'm here to ask, has your child ever said something that was creepy or weird?

My son is ten years old, and has Aspergers and ADHD.

He comes out with mad things all the time, bless him...chip off the old block in many respects that one. Every time I usher him into his mothers car at the end of one of his visits, I say goodbye, I turn my back on the vehicle, and just a few seconds later, I will hear him sing out to his mother "RUN 'IM OVER!"

Love that boy.

Can't believe the Mrs would wish to give you a morning lift to the pub.
What was your son thinking?

Heh... She's not my missus...it's complicated.

As to what he is thinking, the trouble is, it understand all too well. As I said, he is a little too much of a chip off the old block for his own good!

My oldest nephew is five and has been waking up at night saying there's some old woman looking in through the WindoW. It ties in with some kid at school being an asshole bully and probably is because he's been stressing.

Privately, I worry a little bit because I've had a bunch of weird experiences all of my life and they aren't good. So my worry is that he's showing early signs of sleep disorders and associated traits. Yeah, I know it's just nightmares. I really hope he isn't headed down the path of night terrors. He's a lovable, intelligent little guy and, obviously, I want life to be good to him without him having to be anxious about going to sleep at night.

On the upside, his mum is rewarding him for staying in bed with money. He's making a tidy little profit and is now onto his second money box (a super cool Hulk torso). She's currently working on a get-out clause before he starts paying a deposit on a mortgage lol

Ah, night terrors unfortunately formed part of my childhood. I would go downstairs and tell my mother I wasn't feeling well, before losing my mind running around the house trying to scratch through doors screaming "something is wrong, something is wrong". On one occasion I was convinced I was going to fall into the toilet forever and I was trying not to. I did this by holding onto the toilet seat and pushing away from it. Completely bizarre and inexplicable.

They would last around 20 to 30 minutes before I would calm down and go back to my bed as if nothing had ever happened.

Yeah, nothing any of us would wish on a little kid. They should be dreaming of spiderman and Star Wars toys, not freaking old women in their windows and spooky toilet portals.

That's hilarious.

My daughter says odd stuff about zombies and ghosts. She loves scary stuff though, even though she is only 3.

My grandson came home from camping after being lost for several hours in the woods with a really creepy story.

I remember one time our son knocked on the bedroom door in the middle of the night and asked to sleep with us since he had a bad dream. I groggily replied, 'Okay'.



I then remembered that we did not have a son.

I grew up in a house that was built just before the Second World War and I swear that place was haunted. As a child I was often awakened by a lady's voice calling my name and taps on my bedroom window. I was too young to be frightened by it and felt that whoever was calling my name, was there to protect me. After all they knew my name, they were in my house and never caused me any harm.

When I reached ten I mentioned this to my Mum and she looked at me with wide eyes. She had also lived in the house as a child with her parents and three siblings. One of my uncles claimed to have woken up to be confronted by a lady sat on the edge of his bed one night, but my Mum said he was probably drunk, which I later found out would probably have not been the case as he was eight at the time.

I believe we are able to communicate with unknown forces when we are Children, but lose this ability as we grow older and cynicism is thrust upon us.

There have been lots of other things happen in the house, my parents still live there and although I never discussed anything with my own son, he always disliked staying with his grandparents. Not because of the way they behaved towards him, they spoiled the hell out of him, but because of the bedroom he would sleep in when staying. Yes, it was my old bedroom.

I just read your story and it is terrifying! You're right, I wonder if he will remember that when he is older? It would be interesting to hear another account of that as his vocabulary develops.

He is 7 1/2 now, when he is older I will let him watch the show David Politus made about it, and see if he remembers any of it. For now, its better not to invoke bad memories.

I had to pay for this, so Im not sure if it will let anyone else watch it but here is the link to the "Land of the Lost" episode on the Travel Channel that has parts of my grandsons story. www.youtube.com...

Not a kid but about a week ago my wife got up in the middle of the night to unlock the door "to let them in" I said WHAT?? and off she went. So I followed and sure enough she unlocked the door and went back to bed. I sat in the dark the rest of the night watching the door but nothing and she didn't remember anything.

I don't think I would get a very good sleep after that.

My 5 year old freaked me out a few months ago,

I was watching a programme late one evening about the OORT CLOUD (everyone else was upstairs asleep),

the next day i was playing a I-Spy game with my 5 year old, and i said, "something beginning with O" she replied "OORT spelt O-O-R-T"

i said why did you guess that on your first try, she replied "i don't know it just poped into my head"

To this day, i dont know how, there was no way should could have heard the TV, and even known what an OORT cloud was, or even how spell it!

Peace!

Outstanding! This is what I come to ATS. To hear others experiences.

Looking back we realize these experiences were of a paranormal nature because only looking back do we add it all up. Where one or two instances could be dismissible, the sum total of all of them makes us go, Hey…

Adding corroboration from your mom (another witness) who agrees with you, now that you mention it.

At the time you would have been thought crazy for discussing it, time and distance gives people pause to reflect and disassociate from the fear and denial (did you hear that, I didn't hear that), the creepiness, the haunted atmosphere, the glad to have gotten the hell out of there.

So welcome to the forced acceptance of the spirit realm. You no longer have any choice in the matter-- I mean spirit.

Thanks for brining it, two thumbs up!

The second time she absolutely scared the @@@@ out of me!

i was woken up around 3am, by my daughter standing next to my side of the bed, I said, "whats wrong" her reply "Daddy, the little boy in my room keeps waking me up"

now....... my wife works shifts, and only me and my daughter was at home, now me a 34 year old man, was shocked, i instantly said, get in mums side, and promtly switched on the TV,

the next day, i asked her where the boy was, she took me into her room, and pointed to her wardrobe, and said, "He sits up there at night, whistling at me" - nothing is ontop of her wardrobe

only ever happened once, and if i ask her about it now, she doesnt remeber it

proper

I don't think I would be able to set foot in my daughters room again if she said something like that to me.

You know after starting this thread I took a minute to think of anything my daughter (who is 2 years old) may have said to me, and to be honest I can't think of anything she has 'said' however, one night when she was maybe 9 months old we heard her laughing to herself in her bedroom. We went upstairs out of curiosity and found her simply lying on her belly, facing the wall, laughing hysterically at absolutely nothing.

The missus found it creepy because apparently when I was at work and she put our daughter to bed for her afternoon nap she would do this frequently.

Oh dear. My partner is often critical of my commentary through the night. I often talk in my sleep about the man at the door talking to me, or the man on the roof talking to me, which as you could imagine freaks her out just a little bit.

I've yet to remember actually seeing anybody. Nice story though, thanks for sharing.
