17 Of The Creepiest Things Kids Have Ever Told Their Parents

One Redditor asked the mommies and daddies of Reddit a question: What is the creepiest thing your child has ever said to you? The thread was met with hundreds of creepy responses, and some of the kids on this list seem like they just might grow up to be terrifying psychopaths.

The Reddit thread is full of stories about seemingly possessed kids, kids who see dead people, and kids who are harboring murderous tendencies. Borrowing Buzzfeed’s idea, we took some of our favorite submissions and paired them with these (unrelated and purely illustrative) stock photos to share with you.

It’s important to note that much of this “creepiness” may simply arise from miscommunication between adults and young children. In many cases the quotes are scary because of how we interpret them rather than what the children actually meant to say.

Talking and thinking about death, for instance, is important yet difficult for children, as they realize that most adults don’t like to talk about it and are even greatly fearful of it. Their comments about death seem all the creepier because they do not yet understand it.

Have you ever heard a kid say something creepy? If so, share it with us in the comments section!

One funny thing I did was when I was 4, and my sister was just born, and I was waiting to see her, and when I saw her, I said: "She's bald. I wanna refund." Still laugh pretty hard when I think of that.

When I was a child “mommy I want to visit the graveyard” I didn’t even know anyone who had died at the time

I was reading my brother a story one night, and I was alone, because my parents were on a date, and my sister was at Grandmas, and he pointed behind me, and said: "Hi, guy! Who are you!" I was so freaked out, I couldn't turn around. I just sat there. Then, I looked behind me, no one was there. I pulled my phone out and called my parents. They came home, but no one was there.
