- My 2 1/2 year old keeps saying he sees a lady in his room…….
……about 10 days ago my 2 year old awoke at about 11pm screaming "mamma mamma!" I ran up and asked what was up……..he replied theres a lady and man next to my wardrobe…i turned the light on and nobody there obviously. he wouldnt settle. Now he has told his grandparents that there is a lady who is with him in his room at night. The mrs is really freaked by this and i dont like it much. Has anyone else had experience of this with their little ones?
is it time to call in the vicar or has he got an over imaginative mind…surely its just dreams and imagination? My son doesnt see dead people…..does he?Posted 8 years agothomthumbMember
the grandaughter of the folks that live next door used to see a lady at the window of the house a lot – they were freaked out by this and had an exorcism. kid never saw the lady in thr house again.
they are not religious but had no other ideas – local vicar was happy to sort it.Posted 8 years agoTracker1972Member
Regardless of what is happening (I would lean towards over active imagination) it is real to him so "something" has to be done that he believes it is sorted.Posted 8 years ago
Maybe you do something to get rid of "it" and spend the night in his room with him to check it has worked. He won't see it with you there (bet you a pint) and will be happy you have fixed it. If you are happy you will be convincing what could possibly go wrong…luked2Member
My aunt, who is the most serious minded, straight down the line lady you could possibly imagine (with a cut glass accent to go with it) was adamant they had a ghost at one of their previous houses (somewhere in darkest Essex).
My uncle was really annoyed that apparently everyone in the local town knew about this ghost but didn't bother to mention it to them when they were buying the house.
Some old chap would appear, and walk across the landing on the first floor. Except that where the landing had been redesigned a bit and went up a step, he went through it.Posted 8 years agogrievoustimMember
does everyone make a big fuss when he mentions it? Play it down – not saying he is doing it consciously, but kids will repeat behaviour that gets a lot of adult attention
i'm always seeing "figures" in my room when I wake in the night, used to when I was a kid as well – its always my imaginationPosted 8 years agocharlierevellMember
Does he wake up from it straight away? I used to get sleep terrors where you open your eyes but dont actually respond to being shaken etc…Posted 8 years ago
Can still remember the dreams now (pretty vividly too!) but was given some Bach remedies and havent had a nightmare since, probably 18 years nightmare free!chorltonSubscriber
It's not an iron mesh base that's supporting the mattress on the bed is it?
There was a recent article in New Scientist where they stayed in the supposedly haunted Tapestry room in Muncaster Castle, Cumbria.
The scientists doing the study think that magnetic fields could be to blame and they found the strongest magnetic field in the room came from the iron meshed bed. It fluctuated when people turned over on it as well.
They didn't see anything that night though. 🙂
I think the only way to be sure is let the lad sleep with his mum for a week and you have his room. 😀Posted 8 years agoIdleJonSubscriber
I was typing quite a long post in reply to this but it all got a little complicated.
I don't believe in ghosts, never have, but weird things happen after people die.
Add kids into the equation and things get weirder. Not necessarily scary, just strange.
Or if you are rational, adult enough and not scared of the dark, you can say that is a sensible explanation for everything. The problem though is that there isn;t a rational explanation for everything in the world, and kids might just see things that adults don't. Both of mine have.
If it was just a one off, your son was probably just dreaming. If yours is anything like my experiences – both my kids would see and talk to my dead mother even the one who never met her " There's a lady at the top of the stairs, Daddy" "Oh great! DOGS COME HERE!" – then it will stop as quickly as it started.
Now who's for a night ride?Posted 8 years agofubarMember
I used to 'see' loads of stuff…pretty sure it was an active imagination and some unfortunate lighting /shadows….perhaps arm him with a torch to check stuff out…I used to lie terrified for ages not daring to get out of bed but perhaps I'd have risked a quick look with a torch.Posted 8 years agogenesisMember
My toddler was stood at the end of his cot chatting to someone, when my wife asked him who he was talking to he said 'Martin had come to say goodbye'. Martin was my best mate who had commited suicide that day though, at the time we didn't know that. Utterly spooked the missus.Posted 8 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
I see fat people, everywhere.
Lots of mirrors in this place. 🙂
I used to see vampires, monsters, all sorts as a young child.Posted 8 years ago
Shadows, creaking wardrobe doors and billowing curtains were all to blame – as said before nightlights really help, as does mum or dad having a quick peek under the bed and in the wardrobe before turning in.
