Because she woke me up around 2 am this morning convinced her room is haunted. And not her entire room, just her closet.
What do you say to that? We don’t live in an old historical home, ours was built in 1986. The house isn’t built over an old graveyard, etc, etc.
She told me she took pictures with all the lights off and got some scary photos, when I asked to see them she replied “Oh no Mom, I deleted them…they were too scary.”
This is either a sad attempt at getting out of going to school or she is just a silly girl!

Don’t write her off completely! Your home doesn’t need to be old or built on a graveyard for something (or someone) to pass through. Tell her that she can close herself off from what is bothering her – when she is scared, tell her to close her eyes and imagine a white light surrounding her body and in her head she can say “God is protecting me” (if you believe in God) over and over.
We had a “new” house growing up, but things sure did pass through – trust me! And if she is open to it, then they will come to her.

@BackyardLoveBird: No, I won’t write her off completely. At the risk of being blasted, I do believe in ghosts.
I told her to tell “it” that it is no longer welcome here and that it is scaring here and to leave. That is what Jason and Grant (Ok, that’s Ghost Hunters) tell their clients to say.
My Father-In-Law is a minister so I also offered to have him come over and “bless” the room. We will see how tonight goes!

@cincychick35: I think you told her the exact right thing! I just know a lot of people who don’t believe and they tend to write their kids off as just being “kids.” That’s why I said that. No blasting for believing in ghosts from me…I totally believe.
