What should I tell him? My 5 year old has been saying that a shadow comes and stands in his doorway to his room at night. It sounds strange but I know he is telling the truth, as I have seen the shadow in the doorway to his room as when I was pregnant I slept in that room quite a lot (bad snorer when preggers lol). So I do understand his fear somewhat. I have tried explaining to him that whatever it is cannot hurt him, that if he sees it he can call out to me or his dad and we will come to him, have given him a torch to use I’m bed at night and will be giving him a 3D nightlight for Xmas. It’s getting to the point where he will not go to sleep unless he is sitting with me or his dad. I really feel for the little guy because I know it’s scary when u see things in the middle of the night. But I do believe there are a couple of ghosts in the house we live in, but have only see them a handful of times in over 10 years we have been living here. Any advice would be greatly appreciated TIA.
