My daughter has been saying odd things
about aliens since she was three years old. She is four years old now. First, I
was flipping through channels one night when I came across the big scene in
Close Encounters where they showed the face of an alien that was very similar to
a "gray" face.
I changed the channel because I thought the program may
be to scary for a three year old and she said, "No, no, change it
back!" (of course she said it like a three year old) I changed it back and
said, " You want to see that?" And she said, "Yes, he come to our
It scared the hell out of me because I've had several experiences in
my life that made me question whether or not I had come into contact with UFOs
and aliens from childhood on. It bothered me but I just put it in the back of my
head. I always try to be as scientific as I can and not jump to conclusions.
I am a single father, and her mother has brought her back from visitation with
blow-up aliens on two different occasions. My ex said she insisted it was in our
home. She could only said, "If they (the grays) are testing on her, what
could you do about it anyway?" Is there anything that can be done to
Your letter raises some interesting
issues. First, it is normal to report positive contacts with aliens, BUT it is
NOT TYPICAL. Most people are terrified of the prospect of alien contact. Of
course, book authors prey on the fears of their audiences by keeping everyone
terrified. However, your daughter is very young and has not learned or had a
need to fear the aliens.
Perhaps she'll never have any fears where aliens are
concerned. Your sister's idea of testing is only part of what aliens do. A very
large part of their mission seems to be shaping people's attitudes about their
world or to teach them about the consequences of not taking better care of the
earth, etc. Being afraid of aliens is a learned behavior.
Fear is a learned behavior. That is why we so often marvel over
people who engage in "dare devil" behaviors. We are fascinated with
what we perceive to be as their bravery. But it is not bravery at all. It is
simply risk-taking behavior without ever having been hurt or suffering any
consequences. Hence, no fear!
In the case of your daughter, it sounds as if her
contact has been positive. In other words, she may regard these beings as her
secret playmates. This situation has occurred for many others. People have
different kinds of contact with aliens. It seems that most people are
traumatized by it, but there is still a sizable group that is deeply intrigued
with their life experiences and continuing to learn more about alien
You may have noticed the AAER web site takes a very positive
view of contact with other beings. This is so different from other people and
web sites which would have all of us hiding under the covers! We are glad your
daughter is not afraid. It is very likely the alien influence is or has been a
part of your life from what you have described about your life. Would you
describe yourself as afraid of alien contact or intrigued with it?
You may have reached a point in your life when you are curious enough to start exploring what
happened to you when you were younger, and what really happened. Your attitude
about alien contact will be based on your experiences. The difficulty as a
parent is always wanting the best for our children and wanting them to be safe
from all possible harm.
