Do your children tell you they see ghosts? What would you tell them?

My SS (9yrs old) tells me he sees and plays with a little girl who has died in his Mothers house, he said he is not scared. What would you tell your child?

  • yes i do beleived children can see ghost because they might have a sixth sense.that we regular people dont have.animals have it.that why they can hear 10 times more then we can.we are all born deffrent in our own way, i beleive in ghost, and some stay around longer then others,because their not done with their work here on earth. then they move on to a better place.some take care of their love while the spirit move around. i hope that answer your question. take care! you dont have to see them to believe in it.

  • I would try to flourish a gift like that. And too, like you want to do, educate them on the positive and negative spirits.

  • well i truly believe that our children can see things we cannot see. they have a more innocent mind and they cannot distinguish what is real or not. it's like if you grew up hearing santa was real and no one ever told you different you would think he's still real as an adult. their mind changes as they are told what is supposedly real or not. but if your child says he/she is seeing something then ask questions about what they are seeing and what convos if any are they having. you will be amazed what you will hear back. believe me i know. i have a 4 yr old daughter.
