Hi Ashley,My youngest daughter used to see ghosts in her bedroom in one house we rented. She was afraid to be in that room. Then a friend told me to put a glass of water in her room at night to keep the spirits away.
I wasn't sure I believed there were really ghosts in that room, but after I put the glass of water in there, my daughter said she didn't see them anymore.
Usually I find if you tell the spirits to go away, they are upsetting your children, they will. I think putting the water in the room was symbolic in saying you are not happy with their energy in the room. Just my take.
Thanks for posting.
