Voices stop if kids do not talk aloud to self usually. Seeing things that are not there would be harder, have to understand to ignore that specific person/whatever. Can have total remission.
I heard it for 6 months as 4 year old (being lured away to be harmed actually). My parent lived near military base growing up and kids in community heard it too, so did my Mother. Dr told them not to talk to imaginary friends or talk to self alone, act normal and problem stops quickly. My parent had voices stop for her too as kid. (This was better situation if you really want to know as the adults near the other military base in the state were tortured so the city military base REALLY did some damage…)
Can try to move to different community for above reason. If you see a lot of kid affected by this problem, it’s your choice.
Kids can be told some really manipulative stuff by voices, even lured away to be harmed so can be hard fight in some places as my neighborhood had voice saying he was God, and some kids were lured away to be molested. Kids eventually knew to ignore the voices living around here, but was 30-40 years ago, cops at time did nothing. Others on this board have this kid of story, won’t tell parents about abuse easily either due to threats from voices. Most of this child abuse has stopped here as child protection laws are stronger, other scams from those days continue.
When my parents understood there was sex abuse problem in area and some of the cops did not care, she got job working as secretary for chief of police in city nearby and had no more problems. Govt jobs keep some of the mental illness and crazy people stuff away sometimes. (Parents tried moving but got ruined…btw…so returned to city to have two daughters.)
I did not hear voices FT until 30 and had nervous breakdown after PTSD from woman I met who was introducing around sex abuser…
Lots of these youngers (under 30) are under a lot of stress to act up due to some psychosis…Passive aggression and tourettes behaviors are good examples…
Went to school with a boy who heard voices then threw a physical fit and yelled his head off in class. Ex-marine teacher had to wrestle him to quiet room in his desk a lot. Could be possible to easily do some humiliation training to see if he/she would be interested in acting like the others, he will make a lot of money and like his life better. Others don’t act like this. His/her choice? But with some churches telling theirs to mistreat people voices demand such as harass local mental illness victims who took SSDI when local jobs ruined women who were alone, who know what the kids were being told as I went to kind of odd church as kid with no one really teaching the children anything approved only the pastor’s son left to it and some is ‘interesting’, later objectionable. Lots of the churches here have moved past verbal harassment to screwing people at work, customers, own family who got mental care…Who knows what is going on and come out of kid’s mouths at school? Have to establish trust with kid, reassure no need to discuss this with classmates and only repeat their chatter to you.
Finishing school and quiet time would be nicer life.
