Practical Ways to Kick Out Ghosts in the Nursery

Following up on yesterday’s post, I am presenting ways to kick out Ghosts in the Nursery. If you didn’t read yesterday’s blog post, please read it here. There is no good in presenting a problem without offering solutions.

The Nursery is the parent-child relationship. The Ghosts are traumatic experiences in our lineage and those we have personally experienced as parents. They are genetically transferred trauma and personal experiences that affect how we parent.

We can kick out intruders, those thoughts and behaviors that threaten our relationship with our children by praying, forgiving ourselves and others, and seeking professional help or therapy.

3 Ways to Kick Out Ghosts in the Nursery

Pray: This should always be the first strategy of the Christian. In all your ways, acknowledge God and He will direct your path (Proverbs 3:6). Ask God to show you the ghosts in your nursery. Ask God to heal your heart and give you wisdom to know what to do. Do you need to fast, go for therapy, talk to your pastor? Let God lead you.

The prayer of repentance is also important. We should repent for our sins and our ancestor’s iniquities (Leviticus 26:40-42). We may not have had anything to do with whatever evil they committed but we may be affected.

Forgive: healing begins with the forgiveness of self and others. It sets the victim free from the oppressor. Forgiveness is not easy but we can ask God to help us and let his love transform our hearts. Ask God to give you the strength to forgive those responsible for your traumatic experiences.

Seek professional help or therapy: There is nothing wrong in going for therapy. Seeing a therapist doesn’t mean you are crazy. It means you are smart enough to reach out and receive help. God can lead you to the right therapist, Just talk to Him. He is into every detail of our lives.

In the comment section, feel free to suggest ways to prevent traumatic experiences from affecting parent-child relationship.

Thank you ♥️


  1. I think you nailed it! Prayer, forgiveness, and getting any necessary help are vital. Like you mentioned, Through prayer we can stay close to God and He will guide us.

  2. It’s definitely vital to face what happened to us as children so as not to repeat that behavior. I think it’s also important as parents, whether our words/actions be abusive or just making mistakes like not keeping a promise, to admit to the child that we have done wrong in God’s sight and theirs and that we are sorry. This helps them not only to forgive, but to learn when behaviors are not right. It can also help them learn to say they’re sorry.

    1. Thank you for the insightful comment. We should model what we expect from our children. Some parents don’t like to apologize and ask for forgiveness from their children. They buy gifts or try to be nice and expect the child to move on. That’s not enough. God bless you! ❤️

  3. Thank you for this follow up post! I loved 💕 reading the first one too! Prayer is indeed key. In today’s day and age we tend to forget how spirituality plays significantly in healing!
    When we rely on his strength, we remove the immense pressure and burden from ourselves and leave it on Jesus feet.

  4. These 3 points are so important dear.
    Prayer is very vital. Matthew 21 verse 22 says “And all things whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you will receive. There is a promise that backs that up. Which is receiving. All we have to do is ask and believe.
    Forgiving is not easy. It takes the grace of God to do that. But forgiving gives us a kind of peace that we can’t even imagine♥️♥️♥️.
