My daughter used to talk to the " lady and her daughter" in her room upstairs when she was three. Of course we knew it was imaginary people she was talking to, until the day my husband and I heard a woman's voice coming from my daughter's room and we both went tearing up the stairs. When we got up there no one was there except our daughter sitting in the middle of the floor, she said she was talking to "the lady"😱



You know it's bad when you hear it as well!

My boyfriend's grandma(we call her "Big Grandma") just passed away in his mom's house. Our almost 3 year old son was playing in the hallway of said house a few days ago, and all of a sudden he started saying, "Big Grandma?" Over and over. I walked over to him and asked what he was doing and he said, "Where's Big Grandma? I can hear her.. but I can't see her." Then he walked over to a candle and said, "I can hear Big Grandma in the candle but I can't see her." Needless to say, all that witnessed this happening were definitely a little spooked.


A touching story! You'd think Big G was kindly watching over him.

My daughter is 3 and she occasionally wont walk down the hallway in our house. She says "Look at the dinosaur." and then makes an angry face and claw hands. If we go with her she will walk down and we have tried to get her to point at what she sees but she never does identify anything in particular. She just keeps repeating "A dinosaur"

When my daughter was 3, one night she crawled in bed with me while my husband was out of town. As we lay there, she points to the ceiling and gasps and says, "Mommy! Look at the angels! Aren't they beautiful?" Of course I saw nothing. She kept trying to show me where they were, but there was nothing. She said they were beautiful ladies and full of light. Then after a few minutes, she said, "Oh, they're gone now." She would claim to see them several more times in the future, but it died down as she got older.

Through the years she claimed to have a lot of other visions or experiences. Once she woke us up in the middle of the night because there was a "bad angel" in her room who scared her. She described him as a scary boy angel who just stared at her.

We had never had a discussion with her about angels, or ghosts, or anything of the sort, and while we're church-going people, we didn't take her to church at that point yet in her life b/c she was "that" kid who wouldn't sit still or shut up, and no one sitting around her, us or other people, would get a thing out of church with her there, so I would tend to go by myself to church while she stayed home. My point on that is I don't know if she meant "angels" the way an adult thinks of an angel, or if it was a word she was using to describe something else.

The creepiest thing that happened to her was when she was 4. I was going in her room early in the morning to wake her up for preschool, a little before sunrise. When I went into her room, she was in her toddler bed with the blankets pulled up to her nose, and her eyes were as wide as saucers with a terrified look. When she saw me, she ran and jumped into my arms and started to cry and tell me her bed was just shaking. She said she was asleep, but her bed started to shake and it woke her up, and she was too afraid to call out or get out of the bed. (My words summarizing hers.) Maybe she dreamed it, but she was wide awake when I walked in and obviously scared, and what strikes me about it is it's not something we ever bring up, but even now, at just about 9 years old, once in a while she'll mention the time her bed shook and how scary that was. Four is still pretty young in my book to have many memories, so that that one stands out to her means it definitely made an impact.

My younger daughter's favorite word when she was a baby/toddler used to sound like buh-GUY! She was always pointing at the ceiling or in a corner saying, buh-GUY! We never had a clue what she was talking about. At one point, we were reading her a book with butterflies in it, and she pointed to them and said, buh-GUY! It occurred to me that buh-GUY perhaps was toddler-speak for butterfly. It's obviously a leap to make the connection, but it just made me wonder if that was her word for something with pretty wings, and if so, what was she seeing with wings that we couldn't? She is 5 now and doesn't claim to see anything and forgot all about that word, so maybe it was just meaningless, but it was something that stood out to us.

I do have one more with my older daughter who has had several experiences. My mom died fairly suddenly several years ago from surgical complications after we were told everything went okay, so it was a trauma to me. My daughter knew her but was only 2 when she died. In this story, she was maybe 4 or 5. We were in the car going somewhere, and it was quiet -- no one was saying anything, just going for a drive. About 15 minutes in, she casually tells me, "Oh mom! Your mom came to visit me last night!" Took me very much by surprise. I didn't want to lead her into any answers though (I was already suspicious of what this little girl sees/saw from her other experiences with the angels), so I just played it cool and said, "Oh yeah? Were you scared?" She said, "No! Of course not! She's so nice!" I said, 'Oh, ok. Did she say anything?" She said, no, she just smiled at her and touched her hand and then walked down the hallway to come see me.

So... who knows. If she still sees things, she doesn't share them as much, but she's very interested in shows about ghosts and spirits. At the very least, they are little stories that are interesting to us as a part of her childhood!

My grandson has been talking about the monsters that come and take him to their place above the thunderstorms and lightning. He hasn't changed his story in 2 years and he his 5 now and still gets scared when storms roll in. He looks at me and his aunt Kara (age21) very accusingly and keeps asking if we remember? We were apparently, just watching them take him up and not responding to his cries for help. He gets very mad and wants to know why we let the monsters hurt him!

We are not sure what to make of his nightmares that seem to only include me and my youngest daughter. His grandpa, mother, nor his little brother is ever mentioned. ATS has made me question, what if he is telling the truth?' Definitely, weird and freaky to me.

Yeah, never discount what these little ones say when they are that serious. It could be nothing physical at all, that is, nothing you could see happening. But something is happening, even if it is some kind of a nightmare or psychological event of some kind. But on the other hand, you don't want to just dismiss what he's saying because there could be something based in reality happening to him and maybe he just doesn't know how to describe it. Or maybe his mind can't face the traumatic nature of it.

I may have told this story before can't remember though but anyway... when my daughter was 4 years old we lived overseas for some time.We had the double door closets that were tri folding, if you know what these are they fold out in the middle to open and they were heavy doors.
It was around 2 or 3 in the morning when I woke up hearing a blood curdling scream from her.I raised up from a dead sleep with the hair not just on my neck standing on end but all over my body.I ran full speed to her room and she wasn't in bed I turned to the closet and opened the door she was sitting in the closet with her hands over her ears screaming and crying.
Not weird in itself but what was weird was how she managed to close the doors from the inside( they were completely closed) one would have to reach down to the floor put your fingers under the door(around an inch between the door and floor) and pull hard to get them closed as an adult I tried to do this and it took strength to close them completely.I'll never forget the sheer terror that night...ever

My daughter got me twice. When she was 5 months old, she pointed to the ceiling light, and said, light.

When she was 7 months old, she pointed to an old band shirt i was wearing and said, alien. And of course the shirt had an alien face on it,

This I relate to as I was extremely scared of ghosts from a very young age. Something had to initiate that interest (or fear), in my opinion. Like I said in the OP, I'm not 100% sure that I'm a believer in the paranormal but I'm certainly not a skeptic. However reading all these stories, I may be crossing into the believer team. Some fascinating stories.

The physical evidence is hard to ignore. Did your daughter tell you what had frightened her?

Absolutely. It's easy for some people to dismiss what children are saying, especially younger children (toddlers, babies). What I have found is that my daughter, who is 2, is a smart cookie, very fluent, and most certainly not one for telling lies. Yes, she may use her imagination (a lot) when she is playing or fooling around, but if she tells me she's done something, saw something, wants something, she's always telling the truth. If, god forbid, she tells me she has seen somebody or something somewhere in the house (or anywhere) my heart will be in my mouth, because she will be telling me the truth. Always listen to what they are saying.

When I asked her she couldn't get a word out so I took her to my bed in fact she slept with us for the next few weeks.I did ask her the next morning and she said she couldn't remember anything nothing of how she ended up in the closet or why,how nothing.
I have to say though when she was 7 or 8 I woke up again feeling something was wrong so I checked on the children my daughter wasn't in bed again. I ran through the house looking went out the front door she was sitting on the porch just sitting there.I asked her why she said I don't know. She doesn't have a history at all of sleep walking but I must say she always seemed to be uncomfortable sleeping in her room.
At the time I wasn't into conspiracies,aliens,paranormal none of that stuff and this happened well before the internet back in 93 for the closet issue then in 96 for the front porch. I couldn't think of anything at the time as to why so I brushed it off. I did keep an eye on her from then on especially at night.
these were the only 2 incidents of all my kids that stands out as unusual or creepy.

Intriguing stories in here! I started from page one and keep checking back. Thanks to all who have shared so far! I'll be back again to see if there are any new stories.

When I was a kid, my family was looking at a house that we later moved into. A little girl (the daughter of the previous owner) told my brother that there was a little boy that lived in the closet of what later became our bedroom.

This happened in the same house: My nephew was laying on the floor staring at the ceiling and laughing hysterically. When my sister asked what he was laughing at, he said that the guy on the ceiling was making funny faces at him.

This one just happened a half hour ago: My friend's son came up and asked if I was out letting my dogs out this morning. I thought he meant around 11. Nope, it was before the sun came up. He said that somebody scared the crap out of him by calling his name. Whoever it was even touched the window and left a finger print. We're out in the middle of nowhere.

Kids....you just never know! My older son said something in a place we lived that was odd that way. We were in Germany at the time, in housing that had been used by Germans in the past. The buildings were large, with three stairwell sections in each. The basement all connected, with storage areas for each residence, and a common laundry room. Each stairwell had four other levels, with the first three being apartments, two per level, and the top being a "party room" at each end, and a very large "apartment" across the center. Those were seldom used. The regular ones were the same for each level, for those stacked on one another. Wordy, I know, but the point is, the rooms would be the same. Anyway, to make a long story short (too late!), my son was two at the time we moved in. We initially placed him in the smaller of the bedrooms, since he was smaller. Before the furniture arrived, he was sleeping on a mattress on the floor. One night soon after we moved in, he started talking about seeing a "man with a lion" in the corner of the room above his bed. He did not like the room, either, and never seemed comfortable in it, so much so that we switched his and his sister's rooms eventually. she didn't really like the room, either, but was a good bit older and thus more able to deal, and to communicate any issues. Nothing specific there, just a general feeling of dislike.

Creepy part was when I was was chatting with the neighbor directly above us. She said she'd had odd experiences in the same room in their place, like something was there. Vague, but still.... Worse, she'd heard from the woman above her (very sweet lady) about something that one actually saw, some sort of witch-looking apparition! Same room. That one was said to have been threatening in some way. I started thinking of an old horror comic, where a demon could not leave the drawn symbol, but could go UP. Seriously creepy!

Kids can sense things.

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.

*snip*

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.


Now that is creepy! My eldest talked about a room she didn't like at my aunt's house. She'd gone with her aunt (my sister) to visit, and they wanted to put her in the "haunted" room. She flat refused to sleep there. Why haunted? Well, everyone who'd ever slept there, residents included, talked of an "old lady ghost" who would come in and cover people up at night. All but one person. That one said he saw, and experienced, something more like a succubus, complete with very, ahem, personal overtones. Said he felt violated, even though parts of the experience were, from a purely physical standpoint, well beyond average quality. Ick and double ick!!!!!

After hearing all that, I don't think I'd welcome some "old lady ghost"! Never saw it myself. The one time I have visited that house, my hubby was along, and apparently spooks are allergic to him or something. Even in the worst place we lived, nothing EVER happened when he was home.

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


Whistling.......now this is getting creepy! Another thread, someone mentioned whistling (Goatman one, I believe), and Paulides mentions cases of searchers hearing whistling as well.

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.

My own children did their fair share of strange things when they were little but one time that really stands out in my mind was when I was babysitting my niece. She was close to 2 at the time and while I was changing her diaper, she kept pointing, waving and giggling straight up at the ceiling. I asked who she was speaking with and she pointed straight at the blank ceiling and said "the face!"

To these, well, nice to know mine aren't the only kids that did it!! The three younger ones all would stare at the ceiling, virtually every morning, cooing and smiling and even laughing, at something only they could see. The older of the three would point and name these things after Pooh characters. The other two never said a word about what they saw. All three were totally happy, neither the cat or the dog ever reacted badly, and I felt nothing bad at all; in fact, quite the opposite. We decided it must be angels, watching and entertaining them.

I did tell one close friend only that "I keep seeing a little boy in my house". A few days letter his friend called me and described the kid, including his hairstyle and clothes (things I had not mentioned). He told me it was a "Twist" and I should never talk to it.
^snip


So, any details on what, exactly, that is? I did read that you said he'd heard that in Europe, but am quite curious, as I had a "child" thing in a house once.

I don't know why, but I was afraid of mirrors as a child.


My smallest was afraid of cameras, to the point she's actually cry and look terrified, and also mirrors, for a short while when 2-3. After that, no worries at all. Never did now why!

Animals see these things as well.

One evening I was standing in the living room talking to one of my cats. She was acting normally then, suddenly, she went down to the floor so hard her tail smacked the rug.

She was looking behind me. She quickly stood up, swung around and quickly slunk off into the bedroom.

I looked behind me and, of course, there was nothing there.

I found my cat under the bed. She refused to come out.


That they do! At a friend's place, my cat stared at a picture for a solid five minutes. Soon as she quit, the picture fell off the wall. Hardware all in place, and stayed when I replaced it, and no vibrations or anything to make it fall.

Can't wait to read more!

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?


Answer: Ghosts are real, you met them!..

or

Answer: You were a kid with fears, like any other kid, and you had a dream about talking to men as a toddler. Or you just babbled something random.

You choose what to believe, I know I have.
