Fascinating. Not one person here is familiar with the psychology of REAL experiencers of the extraordinary.
As anyone from anywhere is my witness and upon my immediate death by extreme physical torture if I lie or mislead, eveything I say is true to the best of my perception.
Granted, there's nothing anyone can SAY that's an absolutely airtight guarantee of veracity, but such a strong invocation goes a long way toward credibility, as I see it...

. . . perhaps take him out to watch for the shields with you, make him feel like he's the expert with the inside track and see how he reacts to that, a combination of you being interested rather than afraid of the objects and giving him the feeling that he is knowledgeable about them might yield good results.

No therapist worth the suit and tie he wears would refer a patient to ATS for the answer to their dilemma.

As to the OP, I would suggest sitting down with your child and going over the incident in detail and then keeping a diary. Try to make sure your house and yard are secure and see that the child isn't left alone for a while.

I don't know if a child did the original or not but this OP does not deserve the false accusations about this not being a scan of watercolors on absorbent paper because he appears to be telling the truth. Folks, owning some software does not an expert make. I spend at least 30 hours a week in Photoshop and I had to duplicate the action to see if it was plausible. I knew from the outset what the mottling meant about the media and paper used but I proved it to myself first.
Watercolor work is quite obvious in this image. But then, I only have 15 years experience and I may not be worth listening too With over 20,000 hours hands on with Photoshop I'm still fooled now and then by the masters at 3D modeling and animation.

Are you not doing the same thing you are preaching here.
7. The dog and the kid's focus ENTIRELY was on the BACKYARD. Where's the need to go dig up some OTHER not-even-hinted-at concoction to explain the data. The SIMPLEST explanation is the story as told.
You have concluded no other factor can come into play.
The simplest explanation is that ufos are harassing the child. The father has stated all meaningful facts.
Of course a 7 year old is able to understand an explain all world and natural events.
The father worked with the picture in photshop in March 2007 yet it is a recent development. His idea a recent is off,

It is not a hoax. If the picture was altered it was either when I resized, or I may have increased or decrease the colour of the picture.

To the people that are still interested in my story, please leave your emails because I would love to continue to hear your advice.
I was never given the chance to film my dog, take a picture of my holding the original photo or try to photograph one of the shields before being ostracized, and I really doubt that when I do do any of those things I will be sharing them with this fourm. When I do (And I will) I will find another community that doesn't partake in witch hunts.

None of your lines are perfectly straight, they all have minor variations. Not so with this picture:
Notice How the line is not only 100% straight, it is also completely parallel to the top of the picture. In fact take a look at any of the straight lines in the picture (there are many) and notice that they are always parallel with the edge of the picture, be it on the horizontal or the vertical axis. Does that strike you as odd?
