Well, good mummy I am! About 2 months ago I let my 4 year old watch Ghost busters, and now he is terrified of ghosts and monsters. It is at the point where he cant be anywhere on his own- even the bathroom and toilet! I haveto chapperone him every time he goes to the toilet because he is scared of ghosts, and we live in a tiny house!
He wont play outside on his own. Follows me EVERYWHERE! I cant even have a shower without him being in there.
One of us sits on the floor in his room while he falls asleep, then in the middle of the night he comes into our room and spends the rest of the night sleeping on a mattress on the floor.
I dont know how to handle it. I have explained numerous times that he has nothing to be scared of, but it isnt sinking in. Ive even tried bribing him. He just refuses to believe that there is nothing to be scared of!
Has anyone elses children been through this? It has been about 2 months now and we are all over it. I have actually made an appointment for him to see a child psychologist in 3 weeks so I can get some ideas about what to do to get him past this stage!!!!
