My daughter is 3. She started acting different with in the past 2 months. Shes been scared of doing anything alone in the house. She will not go in a room alone, the bathroom, anywhere. Ita only at night time. She is terrified if I turn the lights off, even if my other daughter, her father and I are in the same room. She points at the dark and says she is scared if it. She tells me she sees monsters "big scary monsters" witch I figured kids will b kids, but then shs started telling me she sees green eyes that glow and they look at her. ?? So I felt scared for her cause I couldnt do anything to really help. She just comes up with these stories on how the guy woke her up cause he washed his hands in the kitchen and is sleeping in my room. She cries very hard when I turn the lights off even if im holding her tight telling her theres nothing there. Just seems to be getting worse and worse. Also around the same time she started being scared, my one year old hates being in her room alone. She hates sleeping in her crib and will flop her self out the molment she wakes up and crawls in bed with me. Should I be concerned? I just dont understand.

i do believe children are more sensitive to seeing "Ghosts."

with that said, it does not mean she is seeing them.Some things are explained. Maybe there is a tree out her window making a shadow, or even a toy casting a shadow, It could also be an active imagination. It does happen. I'm not saying this is what is going on. Simply investigate it. When she says she sees them ask her to point it out to you, you might be able to figure it out quickly.

I would simply try a bright night light for her to start, if it's not enough then feel free to leave the light on for her. I personally am willing to pay a little more on my light bill if it makes my child feel safe.Try giving her what I call monster-go-away spray- simply a spray bottle with water. Spray the room down and leave it on her night stand in case she needs it at night.

Even if she is seeing ghost it does not mean they are harmful. Imagine being 3 and meeting your great grandparent for the first time. They just walk up to you and pick you up. You have never seen anyone who looks like that before. You would be scared probably. Same goes here. She isn't using to seeing something like that and it scares her even if it's innocent. Tell her she can tell the "monster" to leave her alone. From what I do understand, this actually does work on most ghosts. Yelling go away, something so simple. I think because most of the time they aren't trying to scare her, and by yelling they realize they have so they back off.

In my house we have quiet a few. Usually only the little girl shows herself. Lately there has been a guy around.( i can't see them with my eyes usually, but i know what they look like in my head if that makes any sense to you) He scares my daughter. Then again she is in her stranger danger stage. Since i know when he's around (sometimes i wake up hearing both babies moving, turning and adjusting in their bed, both are still in my room) i say in my head, they are trying to sleep, leave them alone. He usually will. If he doesn't i say it out loud. My 15 year old son also told me the guy wakes him up sometimes too. I think our guy simply is bored and is used to a very loud and bustling house. He means no harm.
