How To Tell If Your Child is Possessed

Every parent at some time or another has wondered, “Is my child possessed by the devil or some other evil spirit?” Those times when your normally well behaved son or daughter does something that reminds you of scenes from The Exorcist. When your sweet little baby decides to start biting her big brother for no good reason and then moves on to pushing, stealing toys, and screaming at the top of her lungs when you put her down in front of her toys, what else are you supposed to think? Obviously some evil spirit has temporarily inhabited your child and is causing them to behave in otherwise unfathomable ways.

Demon possession provides the most reasonable explanation for the untimely tantrums in the grocery store line. You’ve managed to keep them relatively under control for most of your shopping trip. Then you get into line to pay for your food and BAM! Instant meltdown. What else could it be if not tiny invisible evil spirits hanging out by the grocery check out clerks, just waiting for small children to ‘play’ with.

This also explains why your child can go from playing happily at the playground, to screaming bloody murder when someone else gets on the swing they’ve just vacated.

My children are not immune to being possessed from time to time. Obviously, they are usually little saintly darlings who would never ever behave inappropriately under any circumstances, and naturally, I am an excellent parent. Which is why I know that it is the devil’s fault when they misbehave.

Here are some useful signs that your child is or has been possessed:

  • They freak out for no apparent reason;
  • unusually violent behavior;
  • screaming profanities (sometimes in other languages);
  • throwing food or toys that they would normally eat and/or play with;
  • levitating;
  • head spinning.

Please note that this is not a complete list of signs of possession. If your child becomes possessed for longer periods of time or is completely unmanageable, you may wish to consult with a local religious organization for possible steps to protecting your child from possession.

I would like to suggest the following methods for coping with periodic demon possession in children. First and foremost, when your child is possessed, give them whatever they want to calm the angry demon inside. I repeat, WHATEVER THEY WANT. Secondly, go home and have a drink, preferably alcoholic.

Remember, your child’s behaviour while they are possessed does not reflect on your parenting skills in any way. It is all the devil’s fault!

    I am a single father. my wife was mysteriously found dead in the basement of my home a few years ago. detectives determined there were no foul play in their investigations. I was at work during the untimely death of my precious wife. the only ones in my home when my wife was found dead was my wife, and my 5 year old daughter. when I came home from work, I did my usual routine of announcing to my family I was home and tap danced on my living room floor for added entertainment. my daughter was usually the first one to greet me every day I did this routine. for some odd reason, she didn’t greet me that day and neither did my wife. there was no “daddy…you’re home” or “how was your day honey”. my home was completely quiet. it was like I parked my car in the wrong neighborhood and entered a stranger’s home. I took a look outside my kitchen window and noticed my wife’s car was parked outside. my wife always left me notes or text me if she was going out for the day. I figured she must be upstairs with my daughter playing a prank on me. I walked upstairs and check each room and my wife and child were not there. by the time I place one foot on the stairs to go back downstairs, I heard a loud scream. it was one of the most terrifying screams I have ever heard in my life. it was the voice of my daughter. I frantically find myself now chasing the scream downstairs, trying to find the voice in need. my daughter’s voice again appears, instructing me that she’s in the basement. I open the basement door and there’s total darkness. I hear a different voice now telling me….”she’s with us now”. I turn on the basement night and see my daughter on the basement floor hugging her mother and crying. I call out for my daughter and she’s non-responsive. I immediately pick my daughter up, and check my wife for vital signs. I’m nervous now, and my mind is crashing and burning from all the adrenaline filling my body. I am shaking and breathing hard. I am not getting any vital signs. right when I was about to scream, my daughter placed her hand over my mouth and says to me in her mother’s voice….”we’ll be back for your daughter later”.

    Thank you for the kind words. yes, the tragic event happened. I’ve reached out with my story to several private support groups, and spiritual guidance counselors. My faith is stronger than ever, my loving God will never be defeated by the deceiving works of the devil. My daughter today is a normal 16 year old girl. She goes out to the movies, and enjoys frequent visits to the mall on weekends. I relocated and remarried six years ago. My present wife has no knowledge of the incident. I don’t know if it’s a mistake in not to tell her, but I believe the Lord has giving me this new passage of life with my present wife and daughter.

    there have been numerous of strange incidents after the death of my first wife. about two years ago, My present wife heard noises coming from the living room. She was doing the laundry in the basement when she heard footsteps coming from above. She thought nothing of it, she figured it was me coming through the front door after work. She explained to me that she heard more unusual footsteps coming from the room above. she instantly took noticed and walked up the stairs from the basement. there was no one upstairs to take ownership of the footsteps. She explained to me when I got home from work an hour later that it sounded like someone was tap dancing. I found it kind of odd, knowing I never told her about the personal tap dancing routine I used to do for my first wife and daughter. Since I remarried, I never thought of any “Honey, I’m home!” new routines for my present wife and daughter. Coming home from work now to me is like staring into a blank piece of paper. You don’t know how painful it is for me to enter a home, and toss the house and car keys into a basket, and try for the millionth time to erase the memory of what happened that dreadful day I came home from work 11 years ago.

      Nice horror story/creative writing FA. But there are some time/continuity issues. You should go back and re-edit the story. In your first post your wife died “a few years ago” But in your second post you re-married “six years ago.”

I love him very much . My mom lies and was not a good mother to me I gave up my career as a clinician and relationship. With my sons father to move and deal with this I’m scared he’s being abused my son spanks himself and says he’s bad. The court refuses to listen to me my son is out of control I worry it could be possession because. We are both natural. Empaths. He’s insanely strong he hit me so I tried to give him a hug . I tried to bless him and he says there’s no Jesus in here just madusa?

    I have recently moved in with a childhood friend and she said she has ghosts. She said one is a little boy Named Mikey and he played with her when she was little but didn’t in counter him again until she had kids. Her boys told me that he plays with them and he throws toys at them but they can’t see his face. My daughter whose 9 and has autism told me to tell the boy to stop throwing toys at her and b nice. She said he’s mean. I went upstairs and the light bulb blew for the 2nd time on me in two days and a shadow went across the playroom I get bumrushed every time I go into the bacement and the kitchen upstairs and all my hair stands straight up and I get goosebumps over my entire body and I get really scared like its right up against my body. Last time I felt that I asked it to please stop and I started getting light headed and sick feeling. My moms picture with her 4leaf clovers have bin moved onto the floor and I couldn’t find her earth,fire,wind,water cards and when I did it was in a video case with a bone die and I have no idea where it came from. Do I have to worry about these “spirits” or whatever they are around my daughter with autism?.

    I have an 18 month old am I took a picture of him the other day on my phone and his left eye completely moved on his face to almost on the bridge of his nose. Someone told me they heard of when this happens it is when they have a demon inside of them. Is this true?

    My husband and I put our 10wk old baby boy in the bath today -which he loves- right before he is bedtime. He hasn’t been feeling the greatest; I can tell by his diapers an his mild fussiness. He is a really easy and happy baby so for him to be fussy at all is out of character. Anyway, he wailed the whole time he was in the bath which was sooo weird! He was inconsolable! My husband wrapped his towel and brought him to the living room where we have a space heater to dry him off/keep him warm for a few minutes after his bath. I dumped his little.tub and help (he was still wailing) and he had peed and poo’d his towel. My husband was wiping up the pee off the floor and I held and rocked our precious infant. He was screaming! And I tried to feed him and for the first time ever, it wasn’t helping. I was surprised but just sat there trying. All of a sudden in his screams I distinctly heard “I hate you”. I IMMEDIATELY had goosebumps and I thought my heart stopped. It was so distinct I feel like I just went right into shock and I was welling up. I could not believe my ears. I know babies make different sounds but this was the freakiest thing I have ever heard and I am sooo disturbed that it came from my happy baby. I still feel so shook up that my husband had to put him to bed. What the heck, eh?

    • a says:

      i highly doubt your baby atually said that….the screaming is probably from being colic/gassy…please talk to a nurse or something so you dont hurt your baby

  13. Forrest Wood says:

    I don’t know if this website is a joke or not. With the original article stating 6 signs of possession, I have to say, sounds like a joke. I can somewhat understand the first 4; but levitation and head spinning are highly unlikely. The child, or adult for that matter, is physically incapable of rotating the head 360 degrees. If anyone here does not believe in a higher power (God, Jesus Christ) or an evil being (Satan/Fallen angels, demons); have some respect and take your hatred elsewhere. Some of us are actually looking for real answers. Thank you
