Our Grandson just turned 2 less than a week ago, and while having his bath time tonight, and out of no where, looked at my Daughter-in-law and clear as a bell said to her “Mommy, I see Ghosts”
What is odd is that we don’t know how he would even know what a ghost is, and that if he is seeing something, that it is called a ghost!
There are only a few toddler programs on TV that his parents put on for him (Paw Patrol, Toopy and Binoo and maybe a couple of other similar ones) and some Movies like Nemo, which to the best of our recollections don’t have any Ghost’s in them. His parents, or other family members also don’t watch paranormal/ghost shows, or even talk about the subject, so it isn’t something he heard from anyone either.
We don’t really know what to think, but all agree that it is a very strange thing for him to say, and wonder if he really is seeing “ghosts”, or if it just a word he used without knowing what it meant. He does have a good vocabulary, but like any 2 year old, it can also still be hard to understand what he is saying at times, but this comment was very clear.
I would like to know other peoples opinions, and how to know if he really is seeing ghosts? What should we say to him if he says anything like this again? He doesn’t seem to be scared, so we don’t want to say something that will scare him. If he really does see ghosts, then what do we need to do to help him, etc.?
Thank you for your help
