Should I be concerned?
Okay my son stayed at his friend's house 2 houses down 2 nights ago...
Well me and my son are really good about communicating. I have told him in the past, you never mess w/an Ouiga Board. Well wouldn't you know it, although he says he did not touch it, the other kids did the Ouiga Board, and he said he watched. I have my reasons why you are not to mess with the Ouiga Board, and yes I know kids will be kids, but ahhh...
Now since yesterday, this house is at it again. What I mean is, hearing knocks at the door, and hearing someone call you. My son, who is usually very calm about that kind of stuff (cuz it has happened before); I was sitting on the front porch last night, and he comes running to the door, and he was like mom OMG, I said "where are you" (not knowing I was just outside) and he said he heard as loud and as clear as if someone was in the other room, "here".
Things thus far seemed to calm down a bit. It could just be this house, cuz it has a hx of stuff like that. At the same time a little concerned about the Ouiga Board thing... I do have Sage sticks in the house, was thinking about burning them, but really can't do the whole clearing w/him here. Do you think it would be okay and/or do any good if I burned the Sage, and just said a quiet little blessing or should I just wait and see????
Also how in the heck do I approach the parent. I am sure at some point he will want to stay over there again, but I surely don't want them messing w/no Ouiga Board... Appreciate any suggestions and/or comments....

To me, burning sage and doing a clearing in your house is the same thing as your son messing with the ouija board, so telling him not to do what you yourself are doing is sending him mixed messages.
Both (clearings and oujia) are ways of opening up hailing frequencies between what I would call the conscious and the unconscious, and what it seems you might think of as the natural and the supernatural.
If you go into that communication with fear, chances are scary stuff will show up. And if you go into it from a perspective of being at cause in the matter of being positive change, then positive change will tend to show up.
Rather than forbidding activities like Ouija, or hiding your clearings from your son, I would bring them out into the open and play with them with a positive intention (or god-force if that's aligned with your beliefs). Explore how powerful you both can be in generating positive energy. The Ouija Board has kind of a bad rep, so you might want to shift the focus to another modality, like pendulums or the tarot -- other ways of getting in rapport with your unconscious (or as some people might say, exploring the paranormal).
One way to build yourself as at-cause is to generate a positive energy field for yourself -- it will make your son and you feel very positive and powerful as you go about your more mysterious adventures! Let me know if you'd like some help doing that -- it's an easy process!
And don't forget -- kids love to get scared for entertainment! Ghost stories, Ouija, horror movies -- kids eat that up! And they grow up fine if they feel like they're at cause in the matter of their lives, and don't get sucked into feeling like they're at the effect of external circumstances. You have the power to help our son generate the kind of responsibility that makes all the difference between fun and powerlessness.

I guess we are all products of our experiences, and heritage.
I see in my son, the same gifts that I had when I was his age, and still do. When I was young, probably starting about his age, I would use the Ouiga Board so I know first hand. I know that when you are truly using the Ouiga board, you are allowing yourself to become a portal whether it be negative or positive. Yes there are "things" you can do to protect yourself w/the Ouiga Board, and at the same time, unless you have dissernment, you can and will be tricked. Not to go into the specifics, but I was spiritually attack from my uses of the Ouiga Board, because I did not have spiritual dissernment at that age.
As for Sage... I do not see that on the same relm at all w/the Ouiga Board. My heritage is native american, and it has been through generations that sages amoung other things are used to either "cleanse" and/or promote positive energy and spirituality. Similar as to the Church using incense, when used properly will remove any negative energy and/or spirit.
As for not clearing my home w/my son is here, was meant that this is something that I only do by myself, due to lack of interuption and clear thought. And, if I have a "feeling" that there is something negative in my home, I would not have me son in the home, simply for his protection. It was my son who suggested that perhaps we should burn some Sage... (so I am not hiding it from him)
For me the Ouiga Board is no toy, it is a communication tool or portal. It is something that should only be used by individual that has great dissernment.
As for fear, I generally don't feel any fear as to what we experience. If I do get an impression on fear or negativety, I address it. And at the same time, I do not want my son to make the same mistake that I had made in the past. Yes, I realize many folks have "played" w/the Ouiga Board, and I also know many of folks that wish the never did. We openly discuss everything, and when we experience things, we are not fearful, never. It is more like, wow, did you see or hear that..... However, I do believe that we must be on guard not to allow negative energy/sprits to take a hold.
And not for nothing.... I honestly just came for a little insight, of which I thought would be met w/a little compassion. Ya know it is sometimes hard in this world to be totally honest w/folks when it comes to our beliefs... And to have come back w/"I don't know why you are concerned with kids playing with toys" or to the fact I am send my son "mixed messages", wow, I am honestly sorry that I ever brought it up.... And then thought twice about posting this...

To me, the messages one gets are a reflection of the poster -- perception is projection. But I can understand how it might occur like external negative forces are at work.
Next time, if you want a particular kind of answer (like, only ones from people who believe exactly as you do), you can say so in your OP -- to some extent, the moderators will help you keep your responses aligned, if they feel your request is reasonable. (you would need to report posts that don't comply.) Otherwise, especially with the 'anything will be appreciated' comments, you'll get the whole gamut.
