Why do infants and toddlers seem to have a heightened awareness of the paranormal--and an often marked ability to interact with the unknown? And why do these qualities and abilities seem to mysteriously disappear during adolescence? There's Something Under the Bed! explores the often complex relationships between children and the paranormal, and focuses special attention on the sometimes startling realities behind children's "imaginations." This book will help you: - Distinguish whether your child's imaginary friend is the product of his or her mind, a harmless spirit in the house, or something more malicious. - Trace the links between children's ever-changing beliefs and folklore, fairy tales, and popular culture. - Understand the real phenomena behind ghosts, fairies, angels, and possessions. - Foster a healthy relationship between your child and the paranormal. - Protect your children from fear and danger.
