Does anyone have any opinions on Night Terrors and kids seeing ghosts? My son suffered from them for 9 years starting at the age of 3. When they stopped the being able to see ghosts seemed to have started. According to a website called Psychic 101, they call night terrors a psychic attack. Any informatio
My daughter is 12, she no longer has classic night terrors but she still needs to sleep with someone else or at least in the same room as someone else. SHe always sleeps with her head covered.

My daughter is 12, she no longer has classic night terrors but she still needs to sleep with someone else or at least in the same room as someone else. SHe always sleeps with her head covered. She refuses to go past the top of the stairs at night, or down the hallway past the bathroom. Itʻs not as troublesome as when she was really little, you get used to it. Some spirits donʻt bother her some do. Maybe they could do a show that helps these kids get better nights sleep, thatʻs when there is so much activity, they all seem to be awake late at night.
My daughter has not been able to sleep alone since she was very young. She has always complained that she is scared and that she sees angry, scary faces coming at her in the dark. Now she is 18 years old and some nights she still can't sleep alone. I knew she had some psychic abilities as a child because she would tell me she saw spirits. It was all really strange to me because I like to stick to the ""facts". I did, however, believe her and I told her so. I supported her and wanted her to know that she's not crazy. i came up with an idea of how to help her to feel safe in her own room without me. I went to the humane society and we adopted a very large dog. She absolutely loves animals and immediately fell in love with the dog. The dog slept in her room every night and this helped her sleep on her own. Having a dog didn't solve the problem 100% but it did allow her to feel safer and more comfortable 95% of the time and she was able to sleep without me in the same room. She really trusted and loved the dog. This solution worked well for her so it may work for other children who have this problem.
My heart goes out to the families that have to endure this. My best advise is don't make the child feel ashamed because they can't handle sleeping alone. We went through years of torment and I felt very resentful towards my daughter for not being able to sleep in her own room. I read so many books that the "experts" wrote regarding this subject and had numerous family members tell me to be tough and make her sleep alone. Everyone will tell you that it's your fault that your child can't sleep on their own because you are spoiling the child by allowing her to sleep in your room. This is a serious problem and if a child is forced to sleep alone in their room they get so scared that they hardly sleep all night. Then you see the marks drop at school. Their confidence drops and this leads to a whole new set of problems. As parents we need to trust our own instincts about our children. Nobody knows your child better than you. Don't always assume that the "experts" know everything. If you think that a sleep clinic may be able to help your child then go that route. Seek information and advice, become informed and then proceed with what you think will be the best, most beneficial route for your child. God bless you and your family.
I am a mother of 2 girls who had night terrors and both see spirits now. I am an energyworker and researcher of metaphysical experiences and had so many of our own. Here is what I believe to be going on with night terrors-They seem to be stuck in between the waking state and sleeping/spirit state. When an episode is happening they talk in jibberish and its hard for them to come out of it even when you are yelling there name and flickering the lights and clapping loudly in their face. By the way, don't do that. I found out that to abruptly take them out is wrong. You want to bring them to the present with your loving touch and voice and guide them back to there room. Say " ( Jane) its mom. I'm right here with you. I love you and want to bring you home. Please hold my hand. You are safe, come home with me." The main thing is that you want to be gentle with them, because there already freaking out, you have to show them the way. A salt lamp that has a dim light really works for children who see spirits. It also calms their energy. $40. Very good investment! You can bet that a child who goes through night terrors is a sensitive /psychic child. I belive night terrors is not a psychic attack. That puts fear in the situation and its best to not have fear but acceptance and the will to find answers :) As far as spirits. Make your child as safe in there environment as possible. Your fears are most likely their fears so be carefull of making things scary or fearfull. I love to actually discuss the spirits at breakfast. It makes it seem not scary but more interesting. If your child does not want to talk about it honor that too and offer a shoulder just incase.
