About a week ago while getting ready for school in the morning, my 12yr old step-daughter was downstairs fixing her hair. We were all upstairs when we
heard her run up the stairs and she went up to my wife and said, "look, touch my heart, look how fast it's beating" she went on to say that as she
saw a little boy sitting on our coffee table in our living room.
When I was a young boy, my brother and I had very similar experiences. We would experience VERY similar situations only to run to our parents and get
a patronizing pat on the back.
We grew up in a very hardcore christian environment coupled with "smurfs", "astro boy" and "count duckula" on the T.V..
So not only were our brains filled with God, Satan, Demons etc, we also had Scooby doo, ghosts, vampires etc floating around in there.
This time she walked into the bathroom and saw him sitting on the bathroom counter.
We both had very imaginative minds. We'd often be secretly obsessed with an image or a character, and we would "see" them at school, in home, at
A child's mind is amazing. They will only admit what supports their reality most times. I know I did, and 99% of my friends as a child.
As a teenager experimenting with hallucinogens both legal and illegal, I noticed the same situations would occur to a degree. As in, you become lost
in an exciting and strange reality, and you become blinded by the situation to the point where you think it is real.
On a psychological level, I would suggest you downplay what your daughter is saying, and just observe.
So what now? What do you suggest we do? My wife told my daughter that next time she sees him to not be frightened and if possible, to ask him what he
wants. Is that a good idea? Should we get actively involved with the spirit world like that? Or should we just pray them out?
On an objective level, I suggest you try to rule out all possibilities via any means you can.
IF there is a boy ghost, do your best to PROVE it beyond doubt, and give equal energy and effort to DISPROVE this situation. That's is the only way
to get a PROPER grasp on what is happening. Otherwise you are biased.
Don't let emotions get in the way.
Be stringent, and sensible. Don't let ghost stories get in the way of logic.
