Ghost in the house - I Need Help Now
My grandson has just turned three years old. Last week my daughter heard him screaming and crying at the top of the landing (she was downstairs).
When she got to him, he had wet himself so she thought that was the reason he was upset.
I was minding him on monday and before my daughter left for work, she explained he had become very clingy so I would know what to expect. True to her word, when I left the room Carter would follow me, in fact, he followed me everywhere I went. This was not like him for he liked the cartoons on the TV, or his Nintendo. He would play on his own for a while and I could get on with the house work. I just knew he had gotten a fright, and this really worried me.
When my husband came in, I told him all about it. He noticed as well, for if I wasn't in the room Carter started following him. Wo he asked Carter what he was afraid of, and Carter said, "Man upstairs."
I rang my daughter and told her what was said. She was a bit shocked and was worried for Carter, and told me that his older sister had seen a man when she was about the same age. Carter used to love his bedroom and would have put one of his favorite DVDs on before he went to sleep, and now, in his own words: "Me not like my room," and from then on won't sleep there.
His dad is on night shift so he sleeps with my daughter. We are all really worried about Carter. I just hate the thought of something frighting him and he can't relax enough to be left alone in a room while we are just a few feet away in the kitchen, etc.
His other nanny was minding him yesterday and he was the same in her house. What can we do?
