Children say the creepiest things

by Toby Manhire / 01 May, 2013
Reddit asked parents for the creepy things they'd heard children say. Here are 10 of the creepiest.
It has attracted more than 12,000 comments, and attracted attention at sites including the Telegraph and the Independent.

The question: “Parents of Reddit, what is the creepiest thing your young child has ever said to you?”

Among the creepiest of the creepy related in the thread are these:

 

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 there.

*

My five year old son asked me last week "what do you see through the black circles in my eyes when you're controlling me when I'm at school?"

*

My 5 year old at the time had night terrors and would scream in her sleep. One night I said 'mama's here its okay'. She looked right at me still asleep and screamed 'mama? But who is that behind you?

*

My three-year-old daughter stood next to her new born brother and looked at him for a while then turned and looked at me and said, 'Daddy, it's a monster we should bury it.

*

I jokingly asked: “What’s the best way to get a girlfriend?”

7-year-old’s response: “Tell her to be my girlfriend or she’ll never see her parents again”.

*

My younger cousin (around 5 at the time) once drew a picture of a a black monster, looked up at me, and said “He told me to draw this. He’s coming for you. You better hide.

*

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”.

*

A friend of mine’s child told him “Daddy, I love you so much that I want to cut your head off and carry it around so I can see your face whenever I want”

*

My 2 1/2 year old daughter told me the other night that she drowned. Very simply and matter-of-fact, she said "I died. I drowned one time and died Mommy. The water was very dark Mommy. I yelled and screamed and no one came. No one could hear me and I called and called, and went down and down. No one came 'cause they couldn't hear me, and then I died."

*

My daughter said to me that there is a woman who watches her watch movies in her room and sleeps on the ceiling above her bed when she sleeps. She also says it does not like me and wants to eat my heart.
