After my daughter goes to bed, like most parents, I head to the living room and sit on the couch. I work, I watch Netflix, and I paint my nails.
The other night, one of her toys, across the room and buried deep in a toy bin, started to play music.
I looked up from my computer and saw a small girl, about 6 years old pressing the buttons.
A dead girl was playing with my daughter’s toys.
This wasn't the first time I’d seen her, a few weeks prior she emerged from my daughter's room and let me know that my daughter gave her permission to be there, FYI, so she could stay. I of course later checked with my 2 ½ year old daughter, and she validated that she did indeed invite spirit kids into her room.
Ghost children can and do play with your kid’s toys.
Sure, they don’t have physical bodies, but they do have spiritual and energetic bodies and have the ability to move and manipulate energy in such a way (i.e. a change in air pressure), that buttons can be pressed and cars can be pushed.
And really, who can blame them?
They’re still kids, after all, and they still love playing with new and exciting toys. If they’ve been dead for a long time, even better, because that means the toys your kids have are even more exciting and fascinating.
If their presence bothers you, you can absolutely tell them to leave. But before you do, consider that your own children gave them permission to play with their toys.
Because if ghost kids are around, your children have probably seen them.
It’s normal for kids to see ghosts and spirits; they’re often dubbed imaginary friends, who are only imaginary in that you can't see them.
Ghost kids can be friends and companions to young children, especially those with no other siblings. But, if your child ever gets scared and doesn’t know what to do, you can help. Learn how, here.
