You obviously have not experienced a lot of what I have.
One example. My oldest was 6 years old. She was lying in her bed, trying to go to sleep. Her newborn baby sister & I were in the baby's room, sitting in the rocking chair, baby screaming & I was trying to console and quiet the poor little thing.
As I sat there rocking, a "voice" speaks to me: "If you put that pillow over her face, she will stop crying." JUST AFTER THAT, my daughter walked into the room. She stood there, terrified, and said, "Mommy. Satan was in my closet & he told me to come in here and stab the baby to get her quiet."
You may say it was all imagined or coincedental.....I'm sure you have an answer for it. But, my 6 year old knew beyond a shadow of a doubt what was going on. Not because any parent or Sunday School teacher told her that Satan talks to little children from their closets.....but because children's minds are so much more uncluttered than ours minds. They often hear or see what is going on in the Supernatural realm much better than we do......because of their innocence.
If children are not made aware that their is a spiritual realm, they may tell their parents things that they see & hear and most likely, their words are merely dismissed as "juvenile talk."
I believe in a realm that we cannot see with human eyes......and I believe that children can make decisions about that realm all on their own. They're much more intelligent than we give them credit for, and they are much more spiritual than we give them credit for being.

Get. These. Children. Away. From. This. Woman. Now.

If this woman doesn't kill her kids in the name of god, these kids are going to grow up to do it to theirs.
This family is so fucked.

Uh... Can we get Child Protective Services on that one? I think the mother should go in for a screening.

Isn't it pretty normal to have thoughts like that as a new parent? Post-partum depression or however that is spelled? The part about the posessed 6 year-old is obviously made up though...
4/28/2008 7:13:37 PM
It may have been a dream. The whole thing sounds very dreamlike, but i don't see how someone could have a dream and then later think it really happened. It's probably made up.

Quick! Get the S.H.I.T. (State Hospital Intervention Team) immediately. You need psychiatric help NOW!
In the U.S., at least 25% of women who kill their children cite religious reasons. Eek!

Family history of mental illness?

I think that the overwhelming majority of people have not experienced what you have.
I also think that you get help immediately.

Your daughter inherited schizophenia from her mother.
4/28/2008 7:34:27 PM
Basically you were both dead tired and wanted the kid to shut up. You thought horrible things and instead of rebuking yourselves you attributed that which is horrible in you to a force outside yourselves. Quite common in psychology actually.

I saw this episode. It turns out it wasn't a chicken after all.
4/28/2008 7:43:44 PM
Someone needs to take those kids from her and she needs to get some professional help.
4/28/2008 7:47:29 PM
It sounds like she made up the crap about the six year old to hide the fact that she had an evil thought. Her thougts were, But of course if two people think the same thing then people will believe satan is in a little girls closet.

"Sharp" is apparently a relative term. In this case, I think "Sharp Girl" would come in somewhat behind a melted crayon in terms of sharpness.

This family is going to wind up in a bad way, and as a leading story on the 6 o'clock news.
4/28/2008 8:01:24 PM
I wish I knew who this woman was so I could call CPS and get her watched. That's just... *Sigh* Poor baby :(
4/28/2008 8:10:21 PM
I think most parents have had thoughts about doing awful things to their kids, especially if the baby has colic, or something along that line.
Usually we don't attribute it to Satan though. If you need help, get it. If you need a break get it.

People, people, calm down.
This isn't THAT abnormal. If I hear a crying baby for hours on end, I get some violent thoughts too.
Of course, not being a Fundie, I know that these thoughts are my own and are the result of much stress and annoyance, and no one is likely to follow these.
The daughter might have even had somewhat of a waking dream. But honestly, lady, I gotta say, you're a bit of a Tard. I mean "he spoke to me from the closet"? You're supposed to be telling your kids there AREN'T monsters in the closet!

This story reminds me of this:

Anyone else think this is a bit Stephen King-ish?
4/28/2008 8:34:26 PM
wait, so if she hadn't walked in, would you have smothered the baby?
4/28/2008 8:40:15 PM
Holy fuck. You are raising children? I hope beyond hope those poor children survive your mothering and reach adulthood. Although I don't have any confidence in it and I certainly don't believe they will be mentally healthy if they manage to get that far.
You are one fucked up woman, Kim. You're exihibit 3,456,789 for mandatory sterilization.

The first part (pillow) is highly consistent with postpartum depression/psychosis.
The second part (satan/closet) sounds like bullshit you made up to try and excuse yourself from having such alarming thoughts. "I'm not a bad person, it must be satan!"
You're probably suffering from a mental disorder brought on by the stress on your mind and body from childbirth. You're right to be alarmed and to recognise that you're experiencing thoughts inconsistent with the way your mind would function under normal conditions; seek medical help.

"I believe in a realm that we cannot see with human eyes"
Yes, it's called the rest of the electromagnetic spectrum.
