While kids are always quite good at amusing us without actually having an intention to do so, sometimes they tend to say all kinds of strange things that make you wonder: what goes on in their heads?
Here are the absolute creepiest and scariest stories about kids telling fittingly creepy and scary things to their parents.
1. Special friend
“I was with my sister, her husband, and their two year old daughter. We were talking about loved ones that had recently passed (my father had died sometime recently). My brother in law went and grabbed a picture of his mother, who had died in a car crash when he was six, to show me.
When my niece saw the picture though she started laughing. We asked her what was so funny and she looked at us and said ‘that’s my special friend who sings to me'”
2. Good bye
“I was tucking in my two year old. He said “Good bye dad”. I said, “No, we say good night”. He said “I know. But this time its good bye”
Had to check on him a few times to make sure he was still here.”
3. The brother
“Walking past an old cemetery, my (then) 3-year-old son casually said, “My brother is in there.” When I reminded him that he didn’t have a brother, he said, ‘No, Mama… from before. When the other lady was my mommy.'”
4. Behind you
“Go back to sleep, there isn’t anything under your bed”.
“He is behind you now”.
5. Little brother sick
“When my cousin was 2 years old or so, her mom got pregnant again. One day she went to hug her mom’s belly and said “little brother sick”.
A few days later she had a miscarriage…”
6. Old man
“When my son was small, I was talking to him about growing potatoes. I described how you bank up the earth around them as they grow, and he said ‘I used to do that when I was an old man’
7. Without a scratch
“My sister got hit by a drunk driver in April and it totalled her car. She had my 4 year old nephew and my infant niece with her. When my mom arrived at the hospital my nephew asked her if he would thank the big guys. What big guys Kaiden? Grammy, the big guys that were in the car with me when it got loud and scary and they hugged me with their arms and kept me safe. Even the insurance adjuster cannot explain how either child escaped with not a scratch.”
“Getting my two and a half year old daughter out of the bath one night, my wife and I were briefing her on how important it was she kept her privates clean. She casually replied “Oh, nobody ‘scroofs’ me there. They tried one night. They kicked the door in and tried but I fought back. I died and now I’m here.” She said this like it was nothing.”
9. Bad man
“My 3 year old daughter stood next to her new born brother and looked at him for awhile then turned and looked at me and said, “Daddy its a monster… we should bury it.”
10. Why are you crying?
What bad man?
“There.” Points behind me at a dark corner of the room.
Lamp on bookshelf next to said darkened corner falls off as soon as I turn to look.
She slept in our bed that night.”
11. Bad bad accident
“My mother was babysitting my daughter while I was at a doctor’s appointment and said: “Oh no, Grandma. Mama’s not coming any more today. She was in a bad, bad accident. She can’t come get us.” I had indeed been in an accident that almost killed me at that exact time. None of my family had yet been notified.”
“I was sound asleep, and at around 6am I was woken up by my 4 year old daughters face inches from mine. She looked right into my eyes and whispered, “I want to peel all your skin off”.
The backstory here is I had been sunburned the previous week, and was starting to peel. In my sleep addled state however, it was pretty terrifying for a few seconds. I didn’t know if I was dreaming, or what was going on.”
