Toddler Sees Things That Frighten Him on 2012-08-21

My son is almost 3 years old. About 2 months ago he started screaming off and on during bedtime saying that he sees "birdies". At first we thought this was a ploy to stay awake longer but the way he cried definitely had a "terrified" tone to it-not just a pretend cry. Sometimes it will happen before...

First I want to say THANK YOU for every comment! I appreciate you taking the time to discuss this situation with me.

We have taken DS to the doc for a check up and he is completely healthy. Doc says no indications of autism, mental illness etc... She says he is very advanced for his age socially & mentally so I guess that's good. Although she doesn't believe in this type of stuff so she automatically attributed it to active imagination...

LOSTCROW: My son did go through a very traumatic illness over the last 10 months but he has been better for about 3 months now and these "episodes" started about 2 months ago so I don't know if that event could be linked to this?

ZETA: I am freaked out because I am his mother, he is still a baby (just 2) and I don't know how to make it better or explain it to him in a way he can understand at 2 years old. What parent would not be freaked out by their child screaming in terror? Also, by "mother" I mean step-mother who does not believe in any of this and thinks our family have wild imaginations...

MIZMIMI02: interesting suggestion with the birds-never thought of that but it does make sense. Thank you.

Thanks for the suggestion of the white vinegar with sea salts. I am in the process of completely stripping down his room, cleaning it top to bottom and doing Rooks cleansing method. Hopefully this will help.

Also, I don't think it is night terrors or night halluciations as things have evolved into him mentioning things during the day when he is completely awake. This morning he told me very matter of factly that the scarey girl was here and that she was screaming. He also said she was wearing clothes. I tried to press him for more info but he is 2 and got distracted by a toy.

I continue to be appreciative of comments/suggestions. Thank you all so much for your help!
Thank you all so much for sharing your stories and ideas. I really appreciate it! I will def. Try the cleansing suggested by you, Rook. Jessica, I really appreciated your story and can see some similarities between your brother and my son. I hope that we can get a better grip on this... I will keep you all updated. Thank you again!:)
