My daughter will be 3 soon, and I do NOT discuss any of this around her. Nor do I allow her to watch any movies with monsters or monster figures, and I do not allow her to watch video games that contain them either. She does not go to day care, and is not in school yet either.
So, now that all of those questions have been answered I have a question. WHY is my sweet little girl "seeing" monsters? No there is zero schizophrenia in our blood line either. She doesn't do it all the time. Mostly when it's dark outside, and she always ask me if I'll eat the monsters so they'll go away. I'm not sure why she asks me to eat the monsters. Nor do I understand fully the reasoning behind her thinking that if I eat them then they'll go away.
I prayed with her tonight, and taught her how to pray, and that seemed to comfort her enough to be able to sleep. Which I'm glad that she has found comfort in knowing that I will eat the monsters and that praying eased her. I'm just concerned that she would know anything about monsters, and I don't know what these "monsters" want from her.
When I put her to bed tonight she begged me not to make it dark in her room. When I asked her why she exclaimed that there was a monster. When I asked her where the monster was she exclaimed that the monster was standing in the door. Then when I told the monster to go away (doing the mommy thing). She exclaimed that the monster was on the floor trying to come into the room. So I kept saying over and over again for the monster to go away in the name of Jesus Christ.
When I asked her again where the monster was she said that it was in the hall. I told her that I would ask God to protect her and her brother from ALL evil, and I prayed over the windows, the closet, under the beds, and in the door. Then I taught her how to pray to God for protection, and then I asked her to pray with me. We prayed for everyone in our family. Then she fell asleep.
I'm just puzzled by the fact that she's seeing things. She's a very smart girl, and I've never exposed her to any of these things. Including never doing a séance (sp) and messing with an Ouija board. Also I'm confused about her strange request that I "eat" this monster. Why would she think that I could eat a monster? I would if I could, but how can I eat what I can not see. Is this real? I'm really confused.
