In absolute seriousness, if you believe that there may be a situation that is harming your son and that Judaism potentially offers remedies for it, I strongly recommend that you consult your rabbi for personal, practical advice.

@ray "assuming it is indeed real" is very vague. I don't know much about Jewish traditions about ghosts, but I assume that there are various traditions about various types of entities that may be called "ghosts" in contemporary English by a scared 8-year-old. If you are relating to a specific tradition about a specific entity, then I suggest that you rewrite your question (including the story about your son as background motivation if you desire) along the lines of: "If someone is haunted by a X, as defined in tradition Y, what shemira techniques are recommended?"

@DoubleAA I voted to close as asking for Pesak because it's asking "what should I do for my son?" That sounds very much like something that should be answered by one's local Ba'al Shem.

Please edit this question to indicate why you suspect that there may be such an equivalence.

comment Does any Jewish group follow Yerushalmi only?
Interesting question! You could make this question clearer by editing in information about the norm and why you are interested to know about deviations from it.
