I am new to this board, but just recently my daughter supposedly watched a scary movie at a friends house about the devil taking over a little girl. She has been scared since to be left in a room alone. She literaly screams if you shut bedroom door at night, and it is just getting worse. We told her to go take a shower last night and she screamed and cried she didn't want to be in the room alone. We also have a 1 year old daughter, so we need to shut the door to keep her out of the bathroom, (She likes to turn the bath water on). So, we told her we needed to shut the door and she was screaming and almost hyperventalating. I have never seen her act like this before.
Last night I tried to get her to calm down and explain to me what she is scared of, and I tried to reensure her that nothing was going to happen to her. I told her to pray if she got scared. Well, in the middle of night she was at my bed side scared again, I just told her to go to bed. It is just getting exasperating.
I am also pregnant with my 3rd child. I just feel she is at an age where she can do more for herself without us in the room with her, and she has been doing up until now.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
