A young child with limited vocabulary typically doesn't make up stories like this. First of all, he has no reason to lie about what he sees or pretend to be afraid of a ghost—a term he probably has not heard in his daily experience. Should a parent be concerned about this? I would say yes—not because there is something to be afraid of, but because as a parent you want to know who is hanging around your child (regardless of whether they have a physical body or not) and what that ghost’s intentions are.
Dr. Caron Goode wrote a book, Kids Who See Ghosts. In it, she suggests that parents find out what purpose the ghost serves in your child’s life. If a spirit is an elder (ancestor) who is serving as a spirit guide, children are usually not afraid of them. If is it an earthbound spirit (most likely in cases when a child is terrified of the entity). Dr. Goode would ask questions such as these:
1. Do you as a parent want this spirit interacting or watching your son? Why or why not?
2. Does your son want the ghost around him? Why or why not?
As a parent (or anyone in a human body), you—not the ghost—have the ultimate authority in a situation like this. Just as if someone were trespassing on your property, you have every right to say whether or not this ghost can watch and follow your child around. I would advise you to do a compassionate release to permanently remove the spirit and help it cross over.
Dr. Goode and I, along with ghost clearing expert Ranoli, recorded a 60-minute audio on clearing your space of entities. In this discussion, Caron talks about why children see ghosts, and I share a few ghost stories and how my psychic grandson interacted with the spirit world when he was very young.

Regardless of whether or not you get the MP3, I hope you will take action to keep this and other entities from attaching to your child's auric field.
