My daughter is 2 and a half years old. She has recently developed a strong sense of fear.
There is a particular spot on her ceiling that she says she is scared of.
She says she sees ghosts and monsters in her room.
A shadow behind her curtain is a ghost; her comfy purple pillow is scary too.
Daddy and I do NOT know what to do anymore.
We have tried praying with her.
We have tried giving her a flashlight.
We have tried talking to her about her fears.
At first the flashlight worked; that was a couple weeks ago.
Tonight she has been fighting going to sleep (crying, screaming, even coming out of her room multiple times) for over an hour. D finally put her in our bed, which is unfortunately in the same room as her sleeping baby brother, but so far she has been quiet.
I am at the end of my rope and if she wakes up her baby brother I am really going to lose it. Please LORD, help us!
At this point I'm not even sure if she is truly scared or if she just doesn't want to go to bed.
