My daughter is 8 years old. She told me recently that she plays with a girl named Alice and that Alice visits her at school and on the play ground. She said Alice is white all over, but she can see her eyes and they are dark looking. My daughter also told me that a boy also visits her sometimes and when she was taking a spelling test she couldn't remember how to spell a word and he told her how to spell it. My daughter also told me that when she was taking her math test she wrote down the answer and he told her to change it to another answer and his answer was correct. I've encouraged her to continue to talk to them and don't be afraid, but if she feels scared to ask them to leave her alone. Is this just imaginary friends or something else?
My son is 14 years old and when he heard me talking to his sister about this, he told me that he has dreams and most times they come true. He told me during the summer time he had a dream about his Christmas Concert and he said it was just like his dream. The lights and people were exact. The catch to this is that he hadn't met these kids yet. We had just moved and he was starting at a new school. He also told me that he dreamed that he and his sister was watching a movie and our dog, Lucy, sneezed and he said that is exactly what happened. He also told me he sees shadows sometimes and that he can sometimes feel like people are around him, but nobody is there. Is this real or is he trying to outdo his sister with a "bigger story"? I've also encouraged him to not be afraid and that he is special.
I have experienced things as well, but mostly when I'm around people I can feel or sense things about them. I can sense if a person is lying or telling the truth. I can sense if they are depressed or really happy. When I met my ex-husband for the first time and we shook hands, something said to me that we would be married. Then another time, when I was moving to another state to be with my new husband a voice told me to turn around and go back home. I didn't listen and the marriage was horrible and ended in a divorce.
Is there something wrong with me and my kids?
I don't know what to do.
