I am looking for some help, an understanding ear, maybe I am posting this with the hope that I will find a medium who has more experience willing to help educate me about who and why these spirits and shadows are in my house. My oldest son is now 13, when he was 3 I had trouble getting him to sleep at night, I bought the parenting books about this topic but to no avail could never get him to sleep in his own room a whole night through, this caused problems in my marriage with his step father and to make a long story short ended up getting divorced when he was six. He has been diagnosed with adhd and the diagnosis' just seem to keep multiplying as he is getting older, he has been diagnosed with and Oppositional Defiance Disorder. I was told when he was diagnosed with ADHD to give him melatonin and that it would help him to sleep better, it worked for a little while when the melatonin stopped being effective he was prescribed clonidine, but even with that he states that something wakes him from his sleep. He is very scared at night and will tell me he feels like he is being watched in his room, sometimes he will come in to my room or ask me to sit with him until he falls asleep. He gives me very little details as to what or who he is seeing, last night he said something was in the living room when I question what he saw he said he didn't know I asked if it was a person and he snapped at me and said you don't believe me anyway. I do believe him, he has seen a little girl in a white dress who shows herself to him bloody, he has seen a toddler at the side of my bed standing and looking at me while I was asleep, he told me he thought it was his little brother who was about 2 at that time. He has seen an old woman who was standing in the kitchen staring at our cat. He has seen an older man wearing a suit and a fedora looking out our garage door window. At night when he is scared I can hear the panic in his run if that makes sense. He never talks to the things he sees, I know he is afraid, during the day he is ok and not so scared but once night falls it's a different story entirely. Since my divorce I have been lucky enough to have my parents allow me to stay with them, my son rarely would stay at his friend's house he gets freaked out at other places too, one night when he decided to actually stay at his friends, my father had an experience that solidifies what my son has endured. My parents have added bedrooms down in the basement and my father was sleeping when a group of shadows encompassed the wall, he always has a little light on and could see the shadows, he told me when the group of shadows appeared only one asked my father where my son was at? But they used his name which I am not due to privacy. I went out of town to visit a friend and my mother was cleaning the kitchen one night and told me that she saw the little girl at first she thought it was my daughter and thought she was sleep walking into the living-room so she went into the living room to investigate to find no one there. My daughter never experiences anything I do not believe she is psychic.
However, my 3 year old son is also seeing ghosts he calls the little girl his sissy even when his sissy is at her father's for the weekend he sees the little girl and that is how he describes her to me. He has also seen a little boy who plays with his toys in his toy box, he is also afraid of the hall and will make me turn the hall light on in the evenings. He has also covered his head to hide from things he is seeing that scare him. I want my son to grow up and be able to face this "gift", I do not know how to help him. I have also heard my name called before and the usual footsteps and uneasy feelings but I have experienced that my whole life also, I think this "gift" runs in my family on both sides.
My oldest also gets these feelings once while driving on a road he said to be careful and drive slowly, having no idea why he said that until 25 feet ahead of us stood a huge buck right in my lane of the road standing there, I looked at him and asked how he knew that he said I had a weird feeling. We drove past a certain house my mom lived in as a preteen which she told me stories of it being haunted and my son looked at me and said that house has a haze around it, he had no idea that my mom ever lived there. I hope someone can offer me some insight into what may be going on here and how I can help him and my 3 year old. My house has also been blessed twice. There is no history of anything bad happening here only one family ever lived here and no one died here so why are there so many spirits and shadows. One more thing I have two cats, one of them sensing things here to.
