The other day, My kid swears i was calling his name and told me to stop trying to scare him. I know i wasn't calling his name and no one else was home. He was dead serious and i didn't know what to tell him. He's five years old and not into making # up. Also, he is scared of his shadow, so i know he really thought it was me because he wasn't scared.

Now today he comes running into my room freaking out. He said it was because he needed my help with carrying his toys, but it didn't make sense because it was a couple of matchbox cars and he could put them in his pocket. After a few seconds of talking it wasn't making sense because it was only two cars he needed. So i get pissed because he is being annoying about it. I said, "seriously, what's your deal." He's finally breaks and says, "I'm scared ". I start laughing and say "why? ". He says that he saw something in his room. I'm like, "oh really, where? ". He said, "just in my room, like in the room hanging out ". I said " what was it? A person, a zombie, a ghost, what did it look like? ". He said, "i don't know, it was just a thing"

Anyway. So i move on and assume its a ploy. He doesn't say anything more.

What the heck is going on?

You could ask him to try and draw what he's seen in his room maybe.We have also had strange things over the years,For instance my youngest daughter would see my husband in our home when he was at work.Once she even yelled Hi dad! I was in our room and she yelled into our adjacent bathroom .I said "Your dad's still at work" She said "Ma that's deeply weird, i just saw him go into the bathroom"

Happened quite a few times.Just be patient and supportive with your kiddo,as im sure you are anyway.

Get one of those devices to monitor a baby so you can hear that entity or your kid.

If you still have a motion activated baby monitor on hand you could let him know that you'll put it in his room to always keep a watchful eye.

It's important not to immediately dismiss these kinds of things, but also important to not immediately believe him either.

Could very well be your standard childhood "afraid of the dark" bit. But it COULD actually.be something, and not believing in your child when they are actually seeing something will be sticking with him forever. He'll remember that you didn't trust him.

A motion activated camera says to him, "well, I can't tell you if what you saw is real, but I'll make the effort into trying to prove it", it shows him you care, despite currently not believing

It sounds like anxiety-driven insecurity issues.
--Not to say you or anyone is at fault, but perhaps a relatively new stress in his life, perhaps related to the adult(s).

be more understanding, don't laugh at him or he wont come to your for real problems if he feels what scares him is laughable by yourself.

other than that put a camera in his room. and see what happens. kids have awesome imaginations, it might not be anything. but be supportive.

When my son was 4 he saw what he says was a dark cloud floating down the hallway into his room. He's 15 now, and still talks about it.

The same place we lived at this time also had many sightings of soldiers in dark blue uniforms with guns. I saw them once, and one of my neighbors from India was so freaked out he moved. He truly thought there were guys roaming around with guns.

My son also had a toy piano that played London Bridges in the early morning hours, and the clocks would stop all the time.

History tells me parts of the King Philip war had taken place on this land.

I was never afraid of it, but my son was.

I just told my son they can't hurt you, and they are just tulpas (then explained what that meant).

Tell whatever it is to stop scaring your son, and if you are religious say some prayers

what screloose wrote is great advice. Its obvious that you do not do this, but never tell a child that it is only his imagination and that ghosts are not real. Not only is that simply not true (ghosts are real) it naturally gives the child reason to think that you do not believe him which can be very detrimental to a good relationship and make the child feel alone. Even if it IS imagination, get into his imagination with him, talk to him about it, have him draw it, enjoy these crazy cute moments.

Children are more prone to see ghosts, perhaps you could learn something from your child.

If he's afraid of the Shadow im thinking its your typical Shadow Person case. Set up a Hidden Camera and have it recording 24/7 and when he comes up and tell you this again rewind the tape you should be able to tell real quick if it's all in his mind or something is there. It also won't be obvious. Watch your son's reaction carefully.

Two days ago my 4 year old daughter said to me "

Daddy, monsters are scary and there's one behind you."

I said

"yeah baby, some are. What do they look like?"


She replied

"they look like a shadow".


I almost crapped my pants.

I laughed to lighten the mood, no to make fun of him. He sees me as tough, so i didn't want to act concerned. Thanks for the feedback

kids get scared of stuff, some times they think they see thing and they do not, big imaginations..

so either the kid saw something, though he saw something or is making up a story that he saw something. i dont really think ghost generally hurt people besides maybe freaking people out really bad.

not really sure what else to tell you.. but i would look into it and see if you can see the thing yourself..

I generally agree with that. Knowing my son the way I do.. this seemed genuine. We'll see

This is only my opinion on similar situations that I have observed over the past multiple decades. The most damage that happens to children in very similar situations where their is paranormal events targeting kids, or even implied paranormal events affecting children is when the parent or parents disbelieve what they are being told. The psychological damage is usually permanent and will follow the kids for the rest of their lives. Not saying this has happened to your family, or will happen, it is just what I have seen happen.

If and when a child has paranormal events affecting them, and can find no solution because they are not believed, then the regress inward mentally and hold it in, or they become an even greater target of the oppressing agent of their torment.

How much proof is required for a parent to believe in their kids? Should any proof be necessary when it is your child?

Yes... because encouraging belief in something that may not have actually occurred can be just as if not more damaging.

The best course of action would be to help the child try to confirm it, while still showing healthy skepticism. With that, you'll be able to teach critical thinking skills if it turns out the child wasn't actually experiencing anything paranormal, or you'll teach that you care enough to help them in a real time of need without doubting them. It's a win win
