I am quite spiritual and believe in all supernatural things. My parents house is haunted particually my old bedroom which is now where mybdaughter who turns 4 in jan stays. I used to sense and see this man several times when i was a kid. More older i got the nore frequent it became a few months ago my dad had let my daughter go to bed with a cup if tea in a flask thing there is also a very tall wardrobe next to her bed which is not far from the celing so even if she stood on the bed she wudnt be ablt to reach any where near the top however wen my dad went int he next morn the flask had disapeard and they were both puzzled. Eventuakky my dad saw it on top of the wardrobe on its side. Even if she had put it there just say for example she wud have said exactly where she put it and wudnt have bithered trying ti find it later onshe went on to tell us all that there was a monster in the bedroom at the end of her bed and he spoke to her and keot stamping his feet. I know she wudnt just say these things and considering the things i saw and felt as a child i have no doubt it is my good old 'friend" so to speak 'westy' as we called him as thats what we found his last name and nickname was. A few weeks later she had described what he looked like. Anyway moving on from my parents house. Every night fir a gooo few solid weeks now she has been saying a monster is in her room. I know my mum in kaw has been around us alot in the past but she obviousky wudnt make the kids scared if her in any way. Sonetines my daughter tells me that the monster is scaring her. And a few nights ago we heard her singing and talking to someone when my husband went into her she denied talking ir singing and said she was sleeping. Im worried now and sick of it at the same time in the fact that its stressing me out bcoz shes always been brill at going to bed until all this happend. Everynight i take her to bed at 7pm and she dont go to sleep til anywhere between 8 and 9pm which makes her tired next day. I worry that when i engade in discussing her she dont stoo talking about it and then i fear the next nights she may just be saying ut fir my attention. But at teh same time i dont want her to feel i dont bekeive her. Iv tried many things such as telling the monster to go away. smchasing it pushing it out of the room. Made her get uo and hit it. Tokd her to cuddle to her fav doggy and ignore it and face the wall hiding behind doggy so iv tried both ignoring it and saging theres nithing there and shes safe and nithing will hurt ger and iv tried getting the monster out but she still calls me ir gets out of bed. I really dunno what i can do. shes not afraid if monsters on tv and i think shes using the word monster to describe a ghost. But the main reason why i think shes out fir attention sumtimes is bcoz i wud feel any entity if they were in her room as i said i am sensitive to it so sorry fir such a long post but i wanted to giev fukk info so all readers can fully understand.

Honestly, I am not sure of your religious point of view, but I would recommend praying. My three year old said there is a boy in his room at night, and this could be his imagination, but praying makes him feel better. I pray with him each night out loud to ask God to watch over him as he sleeps and to keep him safe. Then I tell him if he gets scared not to cry, to pray instead. It makes him feel better and it might make your daughter feel better too. Not trying to sound "preachy" (I am not a preachy person) but it is helping us.

kids need to see that we have taken care of their monsters.. I say you should go in that dam room and kill that monster... and make a big wish that no more monsters can enter that room. each night you ... bless that room out loud and let her hear you ... no monsters enter this room ever.. or you will get the same thing your friend got.

I am a believer in all of that. My daughter is able to see and talk to them. When she was a baby she wasn't sleeping well but wasn't afraid, once i started telling them to leave her alone at night so she could sleep she had no troubles. There has been a few occasions where we have had some nasty entities in our home we went around our house with sage incense saying anything here that is not here for good purposes will leave now. She goes around our place with me and says leave now. It helps get rid of them. Another thing that works for us are stones and crystals. Obsidian absorbs negative energy. Tourmaline stops all energy. You can place the stones by her bed and if she is scared tell her to grab them and hold them and it will help her not be afraid. Hope all goes well.

Get the movie Monsters, Inc. the animated cartoon it would help her see that monsters are not all bad. Also praying at night at bedtime might help. This will not get rid of any spirits of course but might help her feel better about them

tell her to sleep in your room for a couple of days and prove to her there is no such thing as monsters and stuff like that and tell her to think of fun places and activites.

My son used to talk about the glass man. The glass man would run down the hall, into his room and then out the wall. He said he was made of glass with water for blood. The glass man never talked to him or even acknowledged him but my son was still scared. He finally outgrew it after two years.

At night when a spirit comes, it can be seen as a monster regardless if it a family spirit or not. Spirits can be attached to a person, place, area, or thing. Even though your house is new, it doesn't mean there aren't other spirits residing in your house as they are attached to that area.

I hope she settles soon. I know how distressing it can be for the child and as a parent.

My parent's house has a few spirits in it. There is a peaceful nosy kind of person upstairs who just likes to hang around and see what's happening and maybe move something every now and again, and a mean spirit in the basement who likes to be left alone in the middle of the night if we're doing laundry but doesn't bother us until about 11 or 12pm. My sister and I both felt them when we were growing up. Mom used to tell us that the person upstairs was the previous owner who had passed away prior to them buying the house. Pretending that what she's feeling isn't real will make it so she won't come to you in the future because she may think you won't believe her. Tell her you do. When we were growing up mom used to tell us when we felt that feeling that the upstairs person was around to just say hi to him, Mr. Putnim. Typically it either made us feel better about acknowleding he was there or maybe it actually made him feel better. I will never know but it made the tension in the room be more livable. Also we used to put the covers over our head and tuck ourselves in so nothing could in in the covers around us. Maybe do that for her and tell her to sleep with the covers over her head if she feels scared. Sometimes mom would tell us that Jesus would watch over us if we called for him and so we would sing songs like Jesus loves me or say a prayer and that helped us to deal with it inside. I don't know if you are religious but maybe pray with her by the bed before she goes to sleep and ask god to watch over her while she sleeps. Now I lay me is a good prayer too. If you teach her to ackowledge that it's okay that there be someone there maybe she will adjust to the fact that she's not alone, and learn to accept it. To deny it though will just make her doubt herself and her own feelings. People have a 6th sense and most of the time, in one sense or another, they are right and should learn to trust it. Maybe do some research on the house together to find out who it might be and who lived there in the past together so she can be a part of trying to discover who comes to visit her or hangs out in the house. Having her be a part of it might help her accept it more. Good luck

I've always sensed, felt, and seen spirits. So, I know how you feel. My daughter also sees spirits as well. She has told me a man walks in the hallway at night. We have also had many incidents of playfulness and some not so friendly ones as well.



These are the things I did to help her. We have a potty chair in her room to use at night when she's too scared to use the toilet upstairs. We took her to the store and I let her pick out a special bracelet and I told her that it would protect her and keep her safe. I told her to say this is my room, please leave and get out.



I stopped watch tv shows or movies about ghosts. I noticed the night when j watch My Ghost Story, there were more incidents of screaming and nightmares from my daughter this when I didn't. So I stopped that immediately as I can understand spirits better than toddler and I know that the show encouraged more activity.



I also had a talk with the spirits In the house. I said to them that we can exist together peacefully and if they hurt my daughter, I will do everything I can expel them from the house. I told them that my daughter doesn't understand that they aren't there to scare her or hurt her, the friendly ones of course. I asked them not to show themselves to her at night as it will scare her. They could still watch over her, but to do it so she can't see then freak out.



I also belong to an alternative thinking group and a woman named Linda suggested that I say to spirits, we know you're there, we can exist peacefully, we are sending you love and freeing you from the house if you wish to leave.



The incidents have calmed down since I've done all of that. The bracelet had an immediate effect for my daughter. Oh and her toy doggies guarding her room too. We so have a playful spirit who likes to hide things, move things, open cupboards, turn on the tv and computer, switch the electric on at the mains switch, turn on the stove, and do mischievous things to my husband and myself, mostly my husband though.



I hope you find some ideas to help your family. Good luck and know you're not the only one.

Jenny, do you know Jesus? Knowing Jesus and receiving him into your heart and life will make a whole lot of the difference in your situation. (Rom 10:9) He brings light into your life and home, and drives away all the darkness in there. it is the devil at work in your home. And you need to know that the bible says ( in Ephesians 6 : 12) that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, But against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. BUT with Jesus in your life (and family) you have ALL the power to command that demon to go, and it WILL SURELY leave in the Name of Jesus.Read Philippians 2: 9-11, say...(v.9) Wherefore God also hath highly Exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is ABOVE EVERY NAME, (v.10) That at the Name of Jesus, EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW, of things in Heaven, and things in Earth, and things Under the Earth, (v.11) And that EVERY should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, To the glory of God the Father.

( John 10:10 says...The Devil came to Steal, Kill and Destroy, But Christ came to give us abundant LIFE.

Also 1st John 3: 8 says...He that committed sin is of the Devil,for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the SON OF GOD was manifested, that He might Destroy the Works of the Devil.

Jesus knows exactly what you are going through right now, that's why He came to Earth to save and deliver Mankind from the enemy the devil, and to give us eternal life. But you have to receive him into your heart first. By going down on your knees and pray to Him. Acknowledge your sins, confess them and then ask him to come into your heart and make you a new creature.

Jesus loves you dear, and is waiting!

Oh wow i never expected these experiences and help. But first of all i HAVE TO say to DIANNE. ..are you honestly THAT small minded that u have to judge me on such a small matter that has nothing to do with thism im trying to seek help from other mums experiences here and all u can say is can i spell PATHETIC and i really do not have to explain it to you but i will just ro proove you WRONG that i CAN infact spell!!! I have a sensitive touch screen phone which im still getting used to typing on the keyboard screen so if ur gonna sit there and judge me on the small matter that i sometimes press the wrong letter in a word or type a letter twice or get them switched around then get the hell off my post. I dont need ppl like u judging on such a silly little thing. Obviously the other mums here dont have a problem with it so please leave this post. im askin nicely but do not dare judge me on such a stupid thing please!!!!!



Amanda. That is a truely strange experience i know its so horrid to feel and sense them around u and no1 ever wants them around ur kids. I personally find it daunting and intimidating to even think about them beinh around my kids even if they are only lookinh to protect them. I cannot believe uv gone thru all that and not known who this girl was. I wud have packed up and legged it. I wudnt have beem able to sleep. Lol. Bless u for being so brave with it.



Lil update now...i put the xmas tree up with the kids as kaitlin was ill and i wanted her to cheer up a bit so i knew doing that wud make her smile. After i had finished i took a few photos of her by the tree not right close up to it but near it. I took bout 5 or 6 photos. I looked back on those pics later on tht night after putting the kids to bed and i was shocked to find 5 orbs all around kaitlin in one of the photos. If all the photos were like it i wudnt have thought anything BUT it was just the one photo and they were white orbs but not true white. I can onky describe it as white but kind of see through. So no solid colour there. 3 of the orbs were clearly in motion as i had taken the photos. I looked uo about colour of obs and it said white orbs are a sign of a safe zoned presence that is not out to harm but only to protect or try to make a healing on the person they are surrounding as soon as i read that i clicked bcoz as i mentioned. ..she was very ill!!! Another freaky thing is the previous day was my mother in laws 6th anniversary of her death. Kaitlin always has a dog she sleeps with and when she gets scared i do tell her to cuddle him tight and that he will protect her and make sure no harm will come to her. shes been queit about the monster thing since being ilk.Ihave showed her the pic to see if she cud see anything that i cudnt. U know like someone standing there who she may have seen before when seeing the monsters (lol) but she didnt say anything. ......idd very odd. X

My son went through that at 2 years old. I had the same problem when I was aged 10-17 I always a black shadow at the foot of my bed and I knew it always came from out of my closet because I had no doors only curtains so on the rod I hung a wind chime and every night it would start to make noise and then the shadow would be at the foot of my bed and I knew it wasn't good. I remember seeing red or yellows eyes in my closet all the time even my friends have seen it. Not sure if it is still there but I hung a cross from the rod and now I don't see it or sense it. But when my son was about two months old I saw a man looking at him standing over his crib, didn't give off a bad vibe. But when he was two for about a week he kept saying mommy, monster girl and would shake uncontrollable and scream. He would stick his head between my legs and cry. I put a silver cross under his mattress and she stop coming around at night only during the day, and I could feel something. I taught him to yell go away my house you leave now. One night I told this girl to leave him the he** alone and come see me. Sure enough that night I saw the top of a head coming up beside my bed and then her face she had a smile on that was kinda erie, but soon enough it changed to something I can't even describe and her hands started to reach for me. I remember praying then telling her to get out. We did this for two days and she has been gone and never seen again. I have to say if that is what she looked liked to my son then I know why he was crying. You have to take back the house so to speak. Get mad and tell it to go away this is your house and he isn't welcome. And get mad yell at the top of your lungs and have her do it too. Sage gets ride of dark spirits not good. Well that is what I was told. Every time she sees it she needs to get in its face and yell at it to go away he doesn't scare her anymore. Have her take power and it should back off. It may help to get her a cross and teach her the lords prayer. I know that it worked for me with my "monster in the closet" because when he scared me I said it over and over and I would feel a warmth around me and fall asleep and have no more problems that night. Good luck and hang in there. Empower her!

Ah thanks foe ur input girls. im just confused really. She has a light nect to her bed but ita never allowed on wen shes sleeping not just bcoz it gets extreamly hot after being on for a while. but bcoz i dont want her getting used to having a light on and then in the future bcoming scared of the dark like i was so shes always slept totalky in the dark the only light she has in her room is from the street lights by the window peeking thru the curtains. Another strange thing that she complains about is she says 'theres a puzzle in my room( or on her bed) ' and as normal as that sounds she dont mean a puzzle as in jigsaw but i cant see what shes on about at all. She knows the diff bewtween ghots and monsters so i dunno why she calles then monsters instead of ghots. X

If you truly feel that there is a psychic disturbance (ghost, spirit, etc) in the room or in the house, then telling your child there isn't one will not be effective. Kids can tell when you really don't believe what you're telling them...

To cleanse a house (not just the room, but the whole house needs to be treated if there's a problem) is not usually difficult. Benign spirit traces are easy to disperse, and sometimes something as simple as a walk-through with a smoldering sage bunch will do it. Make sure the smoke goes into every corner of every room.

(if you try it, and it isn't enough, message me and we can talk about a stronger tactic)

As for your little one, the trick is to make her part of the cleansing, and make sure that she knows the monster will be gone afterward.

Good luck!

Both my children (1yo and 3yo) have had trouble sleeping since halloween. The little one got over it in a few nights but my 3 year old has been calling out at night saying there are monsters in his closet. We have completely emptied out the closet and it doesn't have a door on it. I gave my son this little flashlight and he says it "burns" the monsters. He really likes it, I think it makes him feel in control. I try to accept his fear of monsters without giving into it. I also have seen quite a few picture books dealing with monsters. I am planning on getting him one for Christmas.



FYI: our house is not haunted (that I know of) so it is not quite the same as your situation.
