Kids bring joy and give meaning to our lives, but those are not the only things the little rascals are capable of. While there’s no doubt that children are honest and pure, it turns out they have a dark and mysterious side to them too.

Somehow, certain weird kids get a feeling of the spirit world still tangible to them, and as haunting as it may sound, they sometimes share the creepy stories with their parents. Someone on Twitter shared a story of their child channeling spirits of a previous life, and it turns out that she's not the only one who has experienced this. Can there be something more to it?

In the list below, we here at Bored Panda have compiled the scariest things kids say, and they are so eerie, there’s no way they could’ve imagined them. From death threats to seeing dead relatives, these creepy kids have definitely left their caretakers gasping, and made people question their beliefs about ghosts and reincarnation! Be advised not to read the stories before you go to bed unless you’re longing for a sleepless night. However, if you’re a horror story fan, then go ahead - it’s better than any plot twist we’ve seen in a movie.

Although I do not believe in rebirth, children saying such things is just so extremely creepy. However, it might also teach us to take their fears and preferences more serious, not merely dimissing them as childish behaviour.

She was born into a grieving family that was obviously projecting those feelings on to her. Very sad.

Kids will be kids. Sometimes weird, impolite, and in your face, other times goofy, hilarious and adorable. But what if a child has been acting weird lately? When should parents get alarmed? To find out about that and other aspects of parenting, Bored Panda spoke with Anisa Lewis, a positive parenting coach who was happy to share some insights.

If a child suddenly starts acting out of the norm, parents should trust their judgment. “It really depends on your child and what it is that they are doing that has alerted you to their different behavior. You know your child best and if you are concerned in any way and the behavior has not changed for the better then it is always best to intervene.”

“Depending on the age of the child and the behavior, you might wish to start with open-ended questions ‘What is going on for you?’ ‘How can I help?’ as a starting point,” Anisa explained and added that more serious behavior changes may need a different approach.

Speaking of parenting, we have all heard about quality time with a child, something so many parents feel confused about. So we asked Anisa what role it plays in a child's development and how parents can have that quality time. “Quality time with your child is important no matter their age. Setting yourself up with a routine of quality time with your child when they are little will help to set you up for success as they grow older and their needs change,” she said.

Anisa explained that parents often believe that they need to give their child hours and hours of time. In fact, that’s not true since “it is the quality of time over the quantity that really matters.” It may be that “ten minutes of focused attention (yes, phones away), leaning into something your child wants to do or being available at the same time every day to chat is just as effective as hours of time spent with them where you are distracted, on your phones or juggling many aspects of your day.”

The freaking out I get. This proves children see what we can't see... Their innocence of it gets taken away as adults because they are made to feel stupid and unreal about these situations.

On the other hand, everyone knows that some parents and children never grow close together. This lack of connection follows them to their adulthood, and rebuilding it may be hard, yet possible. “There is always a possibility to change this when they grow up. It is about communication, listening and forgiveness.”

Anisa also said that reasons that parents and kids never become close could be due to so many reasons: trauma, personalities, life stresses and circumstances. “Healing is two-sided and both need to be willing to do the work in order to change the foundation and boundaries of their relationship,” she concluded.

Eeeh.... this one I think it's probably just projection. If it was so random they can't possibly remember with much detail the face of the lady in the bank, and didn't know her name. They can't be sure it was the same person that got arrested. It could very well be another woman with similar hair and body type and they just really wanted to believe it was the same person.

I heard about some beliefs of birthmarks being how you where killed, But if you have multiple, in which order? Cuz I have one on my neck and it could make sense that was one of the older ones, for example a arrow or a sword.

It's maybe a common thing for kids to think they were their parents' parents. A way to inverse roles, powers... My son once told me "When I was your father and you didn't want to eat your food, I was upset too." (BTW my father died when I was 17, but I'm more into psychological explanations than ghosts ;p )
