Kids and Ghosts
Posted 13 April 2004 - 10:18 AM
My 3 year old son keeps telling me he is scared because there are ghosts in his room and in the kitchen. Some nights he wakes up so scared, saying the bad ghost scared him, that he will not go back to sleep until the morning. I dont know if he actually sees something or if he is being a kid and having a bad dream.
A little about whee I live if it helps at all I live in a city run building with about 110 apartments, people constam=ntly moving in and out, being evicted so on, I lived here a few years but recently moved from the eigth floor 2 bdrm to a main floor 3 bdrm. He only started this ghost thing in mid October shortly after we moved to this apartment.
As far as I know nothing ever happened here but it is hard to realy find out. All I know about the previous tenants is that it was an old lady raising her granddaughter and from a neighbour who also knew them all I know is the room my son is in was never used, only as a guest room.
Dont know if the accounts for anything, but Im really starting to get concerned as it is becoming more frequent that my son tells us these things.

How is your reaction when they approach you with such tales? If you take them seriously, they will believe that what they saw must be caused by ghosts, and nothing mundane.
I remember when I was a kid my father would joke and say that the ghosts were probably more scared of me than I was of them. Try that approach instead of behaving like it's something they should be afraid of.

hunnyfire-when he tells us we tell him there is nothing to be scared of and there is no such thing as ghost. my boyfreind does not believe in ghosts what so ever and Im skeptic as to their existence, I believe and I dont believe if that makes sense.

The pineal gland does indeed exist, and has been researched quite a bit, though alot more research is certainly needed to fully understand more about it's functions. It produces serotonin and melatonin. A lack of serotonin seems to be linked with mental illness, while melatonin has many functions throughout the body. For instance this hormone seems to be linked with puperty. Children contain more melatonin than adults but that changes when they reach puperty. There have been cases with children who had a tumor in their pineal gland, to have either precocious puperty or their puperty delayed instead, which makes it obvious that the gland quite probably have something to do with reaching sexual maturity.

How is my response naive? It's not polite to call an opinion naive, without even explaining what you disagree with.

I think this approach is very unhealthy for your child and hardly addresses the problems he may be experiencing. Please, talk to your family doctor before you start looking for answers to your child's problems on a ghost message board. :-/
Sorry, just my opinion.

I think a lot of this is how a kid's mind works. There is a lot of questioning still going on, a lot of wondering how the world works. I think it's more illusion and imagination.
Then again, you just never know, maybe all this time kids that have imaginary friends are areally on to something LOL! It's hard to say. I think Psychology has more answers right now than parapsychology.
Do I get feelings that things are just not quite right without any visible or psychological reasons? Oh yes, I've experienced those before. How do you explain walking along al happy-dandy and then you hit apart of a hallway that you were not even paying attention to, talking to someone else and generally joking around, and then both of you stop and make excuses not to go down that hall?
Psychological? Perhaps, but what was the trigger? Conciously there wasn't anything apparent. In fact everything was quite nice. So what was it?
