Did My Son See a Ghost?

bogeyman

This happened a few days ago with my son, William, age 2:

William leaves his bed and comes into the living room.
“Mommy, who’s that man looking at me from the blinds?”
Concerned about a prowler, I rush to his room to investigate. However, the blinds are closed and no one is around.
Me: “What are you talking about? There’s no one here.”
William stares up at the ceiling near the window.
“He’s up there.”
“Where?”
William points up and continues to stare.
“Up there. Why is that man looking at me?”
“I don’t see anyone. What does the man look like?”
“Like a monster.”

My son seemed curious, not scared, which leads me to believe he didn’t actually see a man’s head hovering over the window. However, it still creeped me out!

Who else out there has been spooked by something their kids said or did?

  1. When my son was four he had an imaginary playmate that started out very similar to your son’s encounter, except that he claimed it was a little boy. After approximately six months of trying to ignore and/or figure out rational explanations for what was going on, we determined that it was a negative presence & had to call in the clergy to get rid of it. This incident was very upsetting & made a believer out of a few people. My suggestion is to pay attention to what he’s doing & monitor what’s going on. Hope it all works out.

  2. My granddaughter, when she was two, complained about a baby in the attic that kept crying. Needless to say, there was no crying baby in the attic. Who knows?

  3. My best friend and her, then, 18 month old daughter moved in with me 2 years ago. Soon after the baby turned 2, she suddenly became afraid to sleep in her bedroom. I started sleeping in the bed across the room from her toddler bed while her mom worked 3rd shift. She kept crying about being scared and I asked her why. She said she was scared of the man in her closet- across from her bed and next to the bed where I slept. That creeped me out a bit. I started closing her closet door and bought a bright night light! (We never let her watch anything scary on TV, so I don’t know how she imagined it. She is 3 and still a bit afraid of her closet, though she doesn’t mention a man anymore.)
