My new neighbor girl . (5 years old girl ) was playing in the garden and suddenly she said ! Look its grandmother and my little sis , they are flaoting in the sky !   We were like.  OKAYYYY ...   Later we asked around ! And we heard that the grandmother died years ago and her mother had a miscarriage !  So yes i believe children can see dead ppl ! And those imaginary friends are mostly ghost !

Again, You need to explain the story more and please, Think before you type.

So, Both two little girls were playing, the girl looks at the sky and sees a cloud and says she sees her grandmother and her aunt? Thus making you believe in... invisible friends or ghosts?

Also, I told my children about about my family because they are all in Australia and they only see them on skype once in a while. I even told my daughter about my grandfather's life, his likes, his past and how he went to Australia from scottland with his family and start a new life for them.

My daughter had told my sister in law kids about my grandfather and in turn my sister in law asked me about him and guess what? I told him he had past away before she was born. She didn't think they saw a ghost.

So logically, She most likely heard about her grandmother and five year olds say the darnest things.

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

There is just no reason to think that kids see ghosts just because they are kids.  A kid has a vivid imagination and you 'feed' him information and you have him seeing dear old Uncle Stewart.

Marjorie Taylor, professor of psychology at the University of Oregon and author of Imaginary Companions and the Children Who Create Them found that 65 percent of all children have make-believe friends at some point in their young lives. Taylor's study looked at children in preschool through age seven. She explodes the stereotypical view: "It is not solely children who are firstborns or who have no siblings who create imaginary companions, and the appearance of an imaginary companion in the lives of these children is not necessarily a sign of loneliness or psychological distress."


For some children, imaginary friends assist in a child's coping with a life change or acquiring a new skill. For others, their pretend friends or creatures are simply fun. Whatever purpose they serve and whatever form they take, fantasy friends indicate a fertile imagination that is as likely to belong to a child with as to one without siblings.

Based on his study of creative play in preschoolers, Yale professor emeritus of psychology Jerome Singer with research scientist Dorothy Singer wrote, The House of Make-Believe: Children's Play and the Developing Imagination. The authors confirm that the imagination required to create make-believe friends "is not the exclusive property of the ‘only' child, the isolated, the ill, or the handicapped." Children with make-believe friends tend to be more imaginative, have richer vocabularies, and are better able to entertain themselves. Singer also discovered that children with imaginary friends get along better with classmates.

Good. She probably seen clouds and used her imagination to pretend they looked like someone.
Children are masters at overhearing stuff, thing is that they usually don't even remember they did but the brains pick it up and gets transferred to their imagination.

I had some weird experiences when I was a kid at night in my bedroom.  Nightmares, most likely.  This all stopped before I was 6-7 years old.  They were very, very early memories.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

I don't know about children but it is a proven fact that animals are more sensitive. They can detect an oncoming disaster
such as an earthquake before people even notice.

It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve. But to much of it can make you arrogant & egotistical.

Did you read the discussion on this?

Yes they sense those things but doesn't mean they can sense paranormal we have some how master the ability to mind read them.

I don't buy it.  I was visiting friends in San Francisco when the World Series earthquake happened (actually I was in Daly City). There were two cats sleeping comfortably under the TV and showed no sign of agitation until everything started moving.  Then of course they were out the cat door in a flash.

It may be that an incipient earthquake sometimes emits high-frequency sounds animals can hear a few seconds before the movement begins, which might explain some of this, but not always.

I think the reality is that people associate any weirdness in the behavior of their animals before a quake with the quake and forget similar weird behavior when there was no quake.

There is no proof either way that animals can or can't sense paranormal. And yes I did read the discussion.
I think most people on this thread would know what I'm getting at.

The question to me is merely whether they can sense impending earthquakes.  The paranormal and earthquakes are different things.  Wouldn't you think that if animals could sense impending earthquakes that the subject would have been studied enough to resolve it?

As frank said.

yes, It isn't proven that animals can see paranormal but the way you orginally posted you are hinting they can.

Like I am hinting to some one that air is really batman but tiny.
