I say i'm a new member, but that's only somewhat true. I've been lurking on this site for about three years and have only recently decided to
become a member. Part of my motivation for joining ATS is due to some very strange and disturbing comments from my daughter. Below I will try to
explain what she has been telling me to the best of my ability without rambling to the extent that I become incoherent. I welcome any suggestions or
advice. I consider myself a very open-minded person, but i'm also not crazy. Well, maybe a little. Nonetheless, here is my story that is still
I am a 32-year old husband with 2 children. My son is 1 year old, and my daughter will be 4 in December. We moved into a house that we are
renting in February of this year. The first 5 months were uneventful. That all changed one day in July. My daughter has her own bedroom, and in that
bedroom is one of those mirrors that are designed to go on the back of a door. It's not old. We purchased it from Wal-Mart about a year ago. Well, on
that July afternoon, my daughter made a comment that seemingly came completely out of the blue. She said: "Daddy, the people in the mirror keep
telling me to do bad things." This unnerved me a little but I did not pursue
it any further because this was the first time she's ever said anything remotely along these lines. I chocked it up to a 3-year old's
Everything remained quite until about the end of September. While i was at work, my daughter woke up my wife and said nothing but "Mommy, the people
that used to live here told me to kill you, but I told them no because I would miss you." When my wife questioned her about this, she completely shut
down and would not offer anymore information. Whatever is going on seems to be escalating in both frequency and the amount of violence. More recently,
as in 3 days ago, our family of 4 was in the backyard playing on the kids' swing set when my daughter says: "Mommy, daddy set you were going to
bleed tonight.....a lot." Obviously I would never say anything this stupid to my daughter or about my wife. I then proceeded to tell her that I never
said anything like that and my daughter (Alexis) responded with: "No, not you daddy. The other daddy in the house." Well, there is no other daddy in
The day after this occurred, my wife asked her who kept telling her these things and what they were saying. Alexis told her that there was a man
and a woman that talk to her. She said the woman tells her to kill her mommy, and the man tells her to kill her daddy. She also said that they never
come out of her room except for at night. At night they will sometimes leave her room and move into the master bedroom. She then proceeded to stop
discussing it with my wife again. So, yesterday when I got home I decided I was going to spend some extra time with Alexis and see if she offers up
anymore information. She did not let me down. Before proceeding I must make a disclaimer. I do not consider myself anything close to being considered
a religious person. My wife, however, is religious. That said, there is a small cross hanging on my daughter's wall just above her bed.
Rather than giving a narrative of our conversation, it might be better if I simply present the conversation as it took place.....
Me: Alexis, is there anything you feel like telling me?
Alexis: What do you mean daddy?
Me: You told mommy some stuff yesterday. Will you tell me what you told her?
Alexis: Ok. There is a man and a woman that hide in my room and tell me to do bad things to you and mommy.
Me: What do they look like?
Alexis: Ummm.....they are grey and have arms like us. They can't talk. All they can do is groan and growl.
Me: If they can't talk, then how do you know what they are saying to you?
Alexis: I don't know. I just do.
Me: Well, next time you see them, you tell them that they are bad and you aren't going to speak to them and then come tell mommy or daddy. And if
mommy and daddy aren't close enough to you, then take your cross off the wall and close your eyes. That way Jesus can protect you.
Alexis: Jesus can't protect me. They'll kill me if i do that.
Me: In that case, then you run out of your room as fast as you can and get me.
Alexis: Ok daddy.
Needless to say, I was dumbfounded at this point. Maybe my Jesus comment was a little off-base since i'm not a religious person myself, but I
won't tell her not to believe. That's a decision she'll have to make on her own as she gets older. I realize this all sounds a little nuts, but
it's entirely true. I don't know what the explanation is for this. Maybe it's something medical. Maybe it's something Paranormal. I have no clue.
I'd also like to add that our children are sheltered from violence probably more so than necessary. She doesn't watch tv except for shows like
Kai-Lan and Wubbzy. I'm pretty sure there's not excessive violence in either of those, although Wubbzy would account for my mild craziness. She also
does not go to any type of daycare, so it's likely safe to assume that she isn't being fed this type of stuff from another child. She stays at home
with my wife and son, so her exposure to other adults is also minimal.
My employer offers free counseling, which I am considering. The only reason i'm reluctant to do this is because I don't want her put on drugs.
If this is something that can't be explained medically, then that is exactly what is likely to happen. Anyway, any suggestions or alternative
possible explanations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you everyone for allowing me to vent.
