That reminds me of something my daughter did when she was
three yrs old.
We were stationed in Japan and live in high rise apartments my
daughters bedroom was across from my husband and myself
one night she woke me up screaming I'm talking a blood curdling
scream that rose the little hairs on the back of my head and my shoulders hunched up
I ran to her room she wasn't in her bed I found her inside the closet with the doors shut
which doesn't sound too scary until you consider these closet doors
were heavy folding doors she would have had to stepped inside the closet
stooped down and pull the doors at the fold in order to get them closed all the way.
to this day I still don't understand what happened that night.
This was the middle of the night it scared the hell out of me
I picked her up,as she was still screaming and put her in my bed for the
next week until I got over it.

My son once asked me,
"Mommy, does the dead man in the basement scare you?"
I was flabbergasted. Our house is only two years old, and he was about four at the time. I asked him why he thought there was a dead man in the basement and he just shrugged.
Then he told me, "Don't worry. The dead man only wants to play Nintendo. He won't hurt us."
Now what do you say to that?
At that time, did your son have a Nintendo?
If not, then maybe he wanted one, and was trying to scare you into buying it.
[color=919191]The following hypothetical scenario is based strongly upon the assumption that the kid had no previous knowledge whatsoever, of this↓ particular game.
I would have told the kid: "Alright then, go down to the basement right now, and ask the dead guy if he knows the cheat code for the game 'Contra'."
If he came right back upstairs and said, "Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Select, Start." I probably would have considered moving.

Needless to say, I made a point of letting anything icky know it was NOT welcome here, and after that, had NO incidents at all.
