Whether or not you believe in the supernatural, a scary film or strange noise can give everyone goosebumps. But you know what shouldn’t be spooky? Your children.
Now parents of Reddit have shared the creepiest things their children have ever said, and they really are terrifying.
Disclosure, do not read this in a dark room before going to sleep.
“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’.”
“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 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’.”
