As you’re asleep like a burnt-out log, your kid’s imagination is running errands in the next room. Whatever happens there will come to light with the morning sun. After hearing about the "poultry-geist" staring at your little one from the closet, you can’t help but feel chills going down your spine.

It’s a known fact that kids are creepy—from drawing weird stuff inspired by some undetected evil force to introducing their invisible best friend that’s in front of you right now. We can come up with many explanations, but there’s surely a limit to what can be made rational. These parents on Twitter have been sharing the scariest things their kids have told them, and we won’t judge if there’s a house or two being put up for sale at this very moment.

Grab your blanket, it’s about to get chilly. If these posts hit close to home for you, there’s no better place to have a low-key therapy session than the comment section!

That's actually sweet, maybe they wanted to see their granddaughter because they never got to see her.

References to a former life are the most creepy things, I think.

Okaaay....a bit like the time I opened the window to let the cat out and saw two men at the corner of the house. I closed the window and went to tell my folks only to see the same two men standing in the passage. I screamed, ran back into my bedroom and continued to scream until my mother managed to push the door open to calm me down. At lease the little old lady who came to visit me one night had a kindly demeanour and told me that all would be well with my grandmother who had bronchitis. The first incident was when I was about 12, the second I was 20 going on 21.Weird..

I had a similar experience when babysitting my cousin, he was around 10, about midnight I heard noises from his room, went up to check and he was stood in the middle of the room staring at his TV which just had white noise on really loud, I asked if he was okay and he slowly turned around and just stared through me! he was asleep with his eyes open, but I just left him to it....never babysat him again!

I truly believe kids can see and understand things we can't.

That is the beginning of a fantastic story. Janie grew up surrounded by friends, invisible to the world. While the rest of her class was listening to the teacher Janie was listening tothe amazing stories of her friends. They would tell her about the lives they had lead and all of the wonderful places they had been. Her friends told her what it was like to live and what it was like to die. As she got older she began to question them why no one else could see them. They told her simply, she is the cloth keeper. Janie accepted this without question for many years before finally asking what a cloth keeper was. The cloth keeper is the one who tends to the cloth of humanity woven together by our shared stories. Janie would know the stories and pull and weave the threads to strengthen the bond and enrich the human experience. Rebelling against her destiny occupied her for most of her adolescence. Then embraced her destiny and set about to do the best she could.

I still believe despite I'm a roman catholic that orthodoxy is closer to the original Christianity and the spirit world than then other later historical churches.

I remember this like it was yesterday. I thought there was a witch in the closet at daycare. I don't know if someone told me there was or what but I screamed every day my mom took me there and she had to change day cares. I drive by it sometimes and the the witch is the first thing I think of. .
