He's had it since age 5- he's sure it wasnt any younger he has an uncanny sense of age and recalls thing from very very young. At first, I was a little alarmed, but asked a few casual questions. Havent heard much until today he was excited that he'd had a conversation with his voice while on the playground. He has siblings and friends and I teach at his school. I gave him the suggestion to tell the voice to go away and he says he likes it and it only tells him good things.
Sometimes it will confuse him like if he likes the right hand it night say no you like the left. I told him to play with the kids and not talk aloud to the voice because his friends might find it odd.
I asked if he was lonely and he had had a lonely dream, but is liking school. He had an awful teacher last year and cried lots in the beginning. He is also a very bright child- sometimes I wonder if theres any kids for him to even chat with on the playground- he doesnt have an intrest in running around like a maniac His brother is very gifted and had a whole imaginary world with a son and dogs- eventually his son went to college around this age and he quit talking about it.
Maybe its similar to that. I wont read too much into it unless the teacher brings it up or I notice it on the playground, etc or it starts interfering with his thinking or doing dangerous things. I appreciate the previous posts- again if anyone has "news to report" especially the oriniator of this post, would love to hear from you two years later. I do teach a child that may be schitzophrenic and the behaviors and forgetting what just happened is very erratic- makes me less concerned about "the voice" when I see the real impact of a possible disorder.
MsMom My son is 4 and is in Pre-K. After the Christmas break his behavor has turned for the worse. He is in trouble all the time and its the same thing over and over; doesn't listen, cannot control himself, talking when he should be listening. Now nothing has changed in his home life but as his behavor get worse his intellect has sky rocketed.
Meaning he can look at a handful of rocks and know how many there are in seconds and he can subtract them just as fast. Today I got 2 phone calls about my sons behavor and when I got we sat down and talked about it. He told me that he voices in his head told him to act up and if he didn't he was stupid. My son is bright and we haven't had any problems until now. Something happened to him the last week of the Christmas break when he was with his dad we are no longer together and I don't know what it is because he is not the same child for the most part.
I am going to set up an appointment tomorrow with his doctor and I am going to his school. There is much more that has gone on behavor wise but the fact that my 4 year old stated the voices tell him to do it worries me.
He has been actting out an doing thing out of no where. He came up to me crying 3 days ago telling me he knew it was not rigt but really wanted to push his 2 year old sister down. I was a happy, though, very shy a quiet boy. Out of no where I start hearing voices in my head telling me to do thing or bad things would happen. The bad things were often someone in my family would die or get hurt bad.
The voices had my doing OCD like behaviors like hit my heel on my bottom five time, throw a cup out the door and break it. I adored baseball and when I got a new ball it was a big deal to me. The voice told my to throw it into the into a enpty field and never touch it again.
I was getting pretty messed up and ashamed to say anything. I was, before this, a boy that never lied or even cussed. I was "told" I had to tear a page from a book at school. I spent 20 minutes slowly tearing out the page. It was a book that was kept in class and the teacher found it. Rather than help me and ask what was going on she pretty much told me she would have me expelled if she could prove it was me. The "voice" told me not to go to school. I would lie about being sick or just not go and hide in the woods all day.
I lost all my friends and the teacher disliked me because I had changed so much. I was extremely alone and thought I had no one to help. The voice started telling me to climb the water tower about three blocks from my house and kill myself. I actually climbed half way up once, and this was a huge water tower down south. I was tormented all the time. The only time the voice would leave me alone was during baseball practice or a game. Finally one day I threw a cup out the window at about 10 pm, my Mom heard it break and came in the kitchen.
She ask me what I was doing and I told her. Rather than yell at me she ask my nicely why and I broke down crying and told her everything. She was a Christain and felt it was a demon and taught me how to pray and ask Jesus to make it go away.
She also told me I didn't have to do what it said and that no one would be hurt by not doing as it said.
That was important because I thought I did have to do it. Slowly, over about two years I found my way out of this by praying and talking to my Mom about it. I know many no longer believe in God and I'm not a good Christain these days but I'm convinced this was a demon out to kill or ruin my life.
We moved from that area back out west and the pressure seemed less and I went on to high school and college. I'm in my 40s now and the voice will sometime still try to talk to me. I just tell it to go away and if it told me to do something I will walk to another place or do the opposite just to spite it. There are things that are scary in the world and little, innocent kids are easy prey I think. U Hearing voice's is not Bad If that is happening please contact me, I can help.
Everyone knows that is an option, people post on here to find info from others with similar problems kimbarker Hi i know that this is a long shot but i had the same problem as a child with hearing voices and seeing things and it has now turned out that I am a medium and was actually hearing and seeing spirit and angels. Once all psychological and physical problems have been ruled out then maybe look at alterantive such as that she may be a medium. My name is Vanessa, I'm only 11 and I just found this page open when I opened up my Mother's computer just now.
And this seems similar to something I suffer. I have only one voice in my head, she has been around for a few years, actually. Her name is Emily, she told me that herself, she also tells me she's thirteen.
I usually think of Emily as a real person, she just lives somewhere in this globe and talks to me almost like a psychic; through my head. But from my experiences, and from what I've read about others experiences with MPS, my case is no where close to it. Emily is not a bad person, she never tells me to kill myself, or to harm myself, I think of her as more of a good person.
To me, the way Emily shows her self somewhat psychically, is by showing her image in my shadow. Whenever I walk around on a sunny day, usually when I'm home alone, I'll look at my shadow, and it'll look completely different than what I look like. Emily doesn't talk to me all the time, but she usually does when something bothers me, or when something concerns me.
I have both severe depression and anxiety, I'm currently on medication for my depression, I believe it's called Floroxitine. And sorry, if I did spell that wrong. I also take sleeping medication, but from what I overheard last night at the hospital, it's like psycho medicine.
I go to a private school downtown, and I'm in a special class. Yesterday, an teacher was making me very angry, so I packed up all my things in my backpack, and ran outside, the teacher followed me and wouldn't leave me alone, I asked her if she could go away so I could calm down outside, but she didn't. She told me she was going to call the police, at this point, I didn't care, and she went back inside the school.
Then, a minute later, my principal came out of the school, I told him to go away as well so I could calm down, at this point, I didn't want to see anyone from my school, nobody. So when my principal went back inside the school, I ran away, I ran as fast as I could to stay away from that school.
I ran up a path near the train tracks, there was alot of trees and greenery near it, so I thought that would be the best place to hide. So I hid behind a tree for about an hour, at this point, Emily was telling me to look out and make sure nobody finds me. She was also telling me I would have to be careful in case the train comes. So I crouched down on my knees behind a tree, and hid there.
I eventually got a little bit tired, school was already over, and I missed my school bus home, I was calmed down now. And Emily told me to go back to the school. So I got up, walked out of the path, and walked myself back to the school, I encountered the police and they took me back. Anyways, about your child, does she hear multiple voices?
Are they bad voices? Do they sound like entirely different people? This may help you find the solution.
