I am writing this to see if
you can help me in any way. A friend of a friend gave me
this email address. What I am about to tell you, might
not have anything to do with alien abductions. But if it
does not, could you please tell me where else I can look
Here is my problem.
My middle child, who is 8, keeps seeing "shadow
people" in her bedroom. They have not hurt her, but
they scare her very badly. I know that she is not making
this up, like some kids do, because my husband has seen
them also. She will not even sleep in her room anymore,
she has to sleep with her sister.
I do not know what to
tell her, to calm her fears. I am not sure if these
"shadow people" mean her harm. She also sees
bright flashes of light in the sky that no one else can
see. She has seen them with not only family, but my
friends as well. She is very adamant about seeing these
I don't know if one thing has to do
with the other. But I felt the need to mention it. I
don't know if I should worry or let it go. And I am
trying to find advice on this. Again, if I am not looking
in the right direction, do you have any suggestions where
I should look? Thank you so much for taking the time to
read this. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Dealing with children and the subject of alien abductions is a very
sensitive area. The fact that your husband has seen these
beings as well is a big clue that what your daughter is
seeing is something real. There is a group of aliens
known as the shadow people, but you would have to tell me
more before I could say whether or not that is the group
your family is encountering.
My suggestion for children is not to alarm them. Let them
tell you what they saw no matter how unreal. From your
daughter's description, you will get a sense very quickly
of what she is seeing. For example, my own daughter told
me a year ago about how her bedroom changes at night --
the solitary window becomes a long row of windows just
like a school bus, except that it flies through the air!
The important thing you can do for your daughter is to be
a good listener, without denying what she saw, and
without adding to her own fears.
