My husband and I had bought our daughter a necklace that is a cross and we tell her that this will help. Just so that maybe it will give her a piece of mind. Here lately it seems that something has been trying to communicate with her. Her and I were on the iPad playing a game and then all if the sudden she leans forward. I ask her what is wrong and she tells me that she thought she heard someone crying. I told her not to worry about it and it is probably our neighbors (we live in an apartment). A few minutes later she jumps a little towards me and tells me she heard someone whispering and crying at the same time. Again, I tell her not to worry about it. Five minutes later, she jumps again towards me immediately tells me it is a lady that whispering, but cannot understand what she is saying. Again I tell her she has nothing to fear and next time just listen more closely. This is now affecting school, her grades are starting to drop and she is always tired because she is afraid to sleep.

Thank you for everyone's comment or suggestions they are greatly appreciated. I will keep everyone updated.

I feel your frustration and anxiety. I'm going through the same thing with my 2 girls, aged 10 and 5. They are afraid to go into any room in the house alone. And they are afraid to sleep in their room. They try to, believe me, but something always happens that scares them. Night before last something knocked on the bathroom door and scared my oldest really badly. So in my room they slept last night. My oldest was complaining about tapping in her room while she tries to sleep and when we were in there last night searching for her art book (because she was afraid to go alone) I finally heard the tapping too. Which I could find no reasonable explanation for. It sounded like someone was tapping a fingernail on her closet door. I was getting a little upset and she told me it happens all the time and to just ignore it. I just take it one day at a time, I try to rationalize it as much as possible so they are not afraid. But really I have no idea what to do. I wish there was a paranormal handbook for parents, lol. But it's important to stay positive and show no fear, I feel.

how do you know if they are ghost... They might be some Angel who are trying to guard your daughter and they mean no harm. Try to understand your daughter or make her understand. To be honest if I were in your place I wouldn't be a bay watcher. God bless the little kid

Cant imagine the fear and confusion a young child must face with these circumstances... Who to trust, who not to tell, and if they will be believed or not.
As mentioned in previous posts, do all you can to ensure that trust link is not severed. If it is happening as frequent as it is, it would seem that thing,
S might get a litte more active, so she is going to need you and to be able to confide in you a lot more.
Also, try and gather as much info as possible about property, who passd etc, that might be able to clear things up

Good Luxk and please keep us posted

It seems as if your daughter may be able to see spirits and because of this they may be attracted to her. I'm glad you and your husband are supporting her and trying to help her understand what is going on.

This 'gift' (as I call this 'ability') can be 'on or off' and/or there are ways to 'shield' yourself from 'seeing' these things. I have a method that can 'shield' a home or individual from negative energy/entities that you can find many places on this site or, if you wish, I can print it here.

Please ask any questions you may have I'll do my best to help you and yours.

It might be worth telling your daughter to specifically tell them to go into the light. I would appear that she is seeing everything, good and bad. She is clearly scared and understandably. Try and support her into taking control of the situations herself. Confidence to overcome. If things become too much for her or being more physically extreme then I would strongly suggest seeking help. Pray and speak to a preist or pastor.

That is a hard one. I have seen things my whole life. I have felt and heard things too. At first it was very frightening. Then I began to just realize that the incidents will pass. I do tell them to leave from time to time. My faith also helps me feel protected. I don't think that a psychiatrist would understand. My daughter was hearing things at one time and the psychiatrist tried to say she had a mental disorder. Not long after that the episodes stopped. She probably just has a gift and if she does, she will have to learn to not be afraid. Make sure she can always trust you to believe her and know that it is a gift not something bad. If the entities start to seem more angry or threatening then I would get some real spiritual help. I think what my daughter was hearing was evil. I think lots of prayer is what caused hers to stop. I think there are spirits every where we go. So running away from the home wouldn't help if she has a gift. She would see things on and off probably anywhere you go. I am just speaking from my own experience. Good luck. Hopefully if you tell them enough to just go away to the light, they will eventually leave. It's worth a try. Tell them to look for the light and follow it. Tell her to let you know as it is happening.
