  • Does this happen everywhere he goes or just at home?

  • Have him evaluated by a child psychologist.
    My cousin heard voices too...anytime he would go into the bathroom. The voices told him to hurt his family. It got so bad that he would poop his pants before going into the bathroom.He ended up being diagnosed with bipolar and schixophrenia

  • He says he sees a ghost? Maybe he has a gift. He is only 7 so a big problem might not be seen yet. Try and tell him to not be scared!!! If he feels scared alone in his room it is OK if he stays with you for now! Tell him the EVERY SINGLE time the voices say something to him to write it down RIGHT AWAY!! I think they "diagnose" children when it really is nothing. My SO started seeing ghosts when he was our DD's age(2 1/2) and sometimes still does. he has NEVER been diagnosed with anything!

  • personally I would find a pyschologist/psychiatrist. I am sure your son's doctor can reccommend someone. Good luck!

  • It sounds to me like he may have a gift, or a sixth sense. I am pretty avid about all kinds of things in regards to paranormal if you have any questions I can help you out. I know quite a few mediums and a lot of paranormal investigators (the members of ghost lab to be included). There are many ways you can help make this easier for him and if you're interested in information regarding the paranormal and your son I'd be more than happy to help you out.
