“We were talking about loved ones that had recently passed. 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 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’.”


“When my cousin was two-years-old or so, her mum got pregnant again. One day she went to hug her mum’s belly and said ‘little brother sick’. A few days later she had a miscarriage.”


“My four-year-old son said: ‘Daddy, I want to drill into your tummy, crawl inside and eat your dinner’. The food was OK but I didn’t think it was worth that much effort.”


“My niece drew a picture ‘of a man in her room’ that she kept telling her parents about. He had two different colored eyes, and one was grey. When asked why it was grey, she responded: ‘because he can see the storm coming’.”


“My six-year-old daughter in the passenger seat a few days ago looked at me and said: ‘Dad, when I’m seven I’m going to kill you’. I had to ask so: ‘How are you going to do that?’. She smiled and said: ‘I’m gonna drive over your head with this car’.”


“My three-year-old daughter was in the bath playing with her toys with me and laughing. Suddenly her face deadpans, she looks me in the eye and tells me in a serious little voice: ‘Mummy, if you bit and ate all my fingers off I wouldn’t love you anymore’.”


“My son had an imaginary friend named Sam when he was three. He would talk to him and laugh when we weren’t in the room. We would always play along with him. Build his imagination and what not. We asked him: ‘What does Sam look like?’ And he said: ‘He’s small. Like me. But he’s not a kid. He has black hair and black eyes’. I looked at my wife and laughed and said: ‘That doesn’t sound like a nice friend’. And he replied: ‘Shhh, he’s right behind you’.”


“When our dog died, without us yet having properly attempted to explain death, our then two-year-old said: ‘All her thoughts left her body’.”

“My son is eight and I was telling him how much I love him and thanks for being in my life. He said: ‘I didn’t choose this life. I couldn’t control how it began. But I can control how it ends’.”


“I have a three-year-old daughter. She tells me that a red man comes into her room at night through her window. His name is ‘Consequences’ and he’s mean to her. She said he hurts her and stares at her while she is in her bed. I have no idea where she would get the material for this story, and she really, really believes it. I’ve locked her window for her and pulled the blinds, all in an attempt to convince her that no one is getting in through her window. Sometimes, in the morning, she’ll say: ‘It didn’t work, Mumma, consequences got in last night again.”


“To our three-year-old son: ‘What would you do if we had another baby?’ Our son: ‘I’d kill it’.”

“My child had woken up early so she was watching cartoons next to me in my bed while I tried to wake up. I’d heard a funny sound downstairs earlier that I mentally blamed on the dogs. Then kiddo leans over to me and remarks: ‘Oh, there’s a man in the house’.”


“’I’m scared of the woman who lives in the attic’. My step-father’s ex hung herself in the house. My daughter has no recollection of the woman but I remember her saying it.”
