    Is my dads house haunted?
    OK. So here's the thing I live with my mom but I live with my dad every other weekend. Well my dad moved into this old old old old old victorian house and this is kind of weird and stuff but I think its haunted! Me and my 5 year old sister have separate rooms for personal reasons but she will come into my room and tell me to make "the visitor" leave... who is "the visitor?" when I come home from a friends house or something my dog will be in a room which we close off to her access. Once my sister woke screaming and it turns out someone had planted several dead animals in her bed!EW! Sometimes when I'm at the school or waiting for my bus ill here someone call my name ill reply and then usually it'll say ill wait for you... and kind of trails off into emptiness. You can here the stairs creaking as if an old hobbled man was climbing down them or as if a child was running down them playing in a game of tag. This is kind of weird but I'm scared of my bedroom. I only go to my dresser during daytime hours because during the night it shakes back and forth almost as if a person was trying to escape it. Once my sister threw a ball to something that we could not see and it floated as if someone were holding it then it threw it back down to her. She will talk to people that aren't there also. Mainly a to little kids that she calls Peter who is a 6 year old boy and a 5 year old girl she calls kelly. There are others but I lose track. I only remember those because she will ask me to play with them now and then. I wonder if they are the cause of the chidrens' footsteps... perhaps. But please help. Oh and the lady who used to live there had 12 kids only 1 lived and her husband died... HEEEEELLLLPPPPP!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

    No I don't think there's anything in it.
    It's an old house, and it's going to make strange noises during the night as the temperature drops - pipes may rattle and floorboards will creak.

    Your sister is probably just making up a few stories and getting a bit scared being alone in her room at night. The simple fact is that there is no evidence that ghosts exist - not that I'm totally against the idea of the paranormal, but I'd bet any amount of money that there is no ghost in your dad's house. :)

    Yes you spelt "poltergeist" right, but you don't have one.
    Honestly, if you did you could charge admission! There has never, ever, ever been a documented case of a real poltergeist - and people have been hunting for them for over a hundred years.

    No one has ever documented a poltergeist, wrong... poltergeist activity has been documented and studied. No one has ever PROVED without a doubt that they exist... BUT... no one has ever seen an electron. No one has ever seen a "thought" (we have seen the RESULTS of thinking, but not an actual thought. No one has ever seen gravity. No one has ever seen magnetism. Of the latter two, again we see the results of those forces but not the forces themselves. I challenge anyone to send me a jar of gravity. Researchers and investigators have indeed seen the results of poltergeist and poltergeist-like activity. So you can see that,
    "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence" as Carl Sagan said.

    It is unfortunate that the house holds so many bad memories as so many children passed away in that family. Children do not have as full of a grasp on life, and depending on age, may not even be able to understand the concept of death and dying at all. It isn't until the ages of 6 - 12 that a child begins to understand exactly what death is. I am using a text book about dying, death and bereavement as my source. What this is boiling down to is that depending on the ages of the children who passed, they may not have realized that they had died. At any rate, they would have likely returned "home", the house you write of, after their passing to be with their family. This is especially the case if for some reason there was nobody from the spirit world to take them over into the light. If it is indeed one or two of the youngsters who haunt, they are grounded ghosts. That means that they are trapped here.

    It is very likely that your sister is indeed seeing the ghosts of the children she calls Peter and Kelly.
    Theory says that children are more likely to see ghosts because they have not been told that they can't! The ability vanishes quickly when a parent, whom they trust as truthful, tell them that they are just imagining things - or that ghosts don't exist.

    Another reason that children have a better chance of seeing ghosts is because it is possible that ghosts are seen in the light frequency known as ultraviolet, UV-A to be specific (this is based on Canadian findings). As people age, they grow develop filters to this type of light, and therefore lost some of their ability.

    If these are indeed ghost children, you have nothing to really be afraid of. I personally feel very sorry for trapped ghosts, but for children ghosts particularly. (To tell you a secret, the reason I have studied the paranormal for so long is because when I die, I want to help the lost children find the light from the other side.) The invisible playmates you speak of are excited to have some one new to play with. But this is wrong. They belong in the light with their family.

    Unfortunately I can't be much more help than this. Hopefully someone from the spirit realm will find them and take them home. As you are young, I can not ethically give you any more help or advise than this. But I do hope that my explanation of possible causes helped a little. Most of all, do not be afraid. Ghosts are still human beings like us. They just live in a place we hardly ever see.

    Take care and don't worry. This will all work out!!
