Troubled teen keeps talking about past life to get attention

My son Caden won't put down his books about World War I. I appreciate his interest in history, but now he's talking about his past life? The therapist did a past life regression, and Caden described being a WWI pilot in Japan. The books were one thing, but this has gone too far. We are a Christian family and he won't stop waking up the house about his nightmares at 2am. Any moms deal with this overactive imagination? Would like to help him find his way back to God

Maybe this is his reality. Just because you don't believe it, doesn't mean it isn't real. He believes it, and it is his belief. To accuse him of doing for attention is showing a total lack of any kind of empathy for the fact that he really believes this.

how about, believing him, this iswhat hetruley believes. he needs to be able to turn to his mother without being called out as seeking attention. you say he wont stop waking up the house about his nightmares... can he help having nightmares? he needs his mum.

Perhaps, he has so much empathy that he really relates or admires this pilot. This does not mean he is furthering himself from God, does it?
