Not only kids are funny and witty, but it turns out that they can also communicate with spirits and say the creepiest things ever. Don't believe it? There are many theories that kids can really see ghosts because they don't have the social norms and life limitations fully 'installed' into them. Whether it's true or not, these creepy kids in our list below have conjured up scary stories that no adult could come up with.
Compiled by Bored Panda, this collection of creepy things kids say is sure to freak you out. From kids who love their parents so much, they want to cut off their heads and carry them around, to children who can see invisible things lurking in the darkest corners of the house, you'll never look at your babies in the same way again. Kids say the darndest things, and there's no better proof than these stories!
I was with my sister, her husband, and their two year old daughter. We were talking about loved ones that had recently passed (my father had died sometime recently). 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 though 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".
I still shiver a bit just thinking about it.
"Go back to sleep, there isn't anything under your bed".
"He is behind you now".
Still haven't gotten over that one and shiver at the memory.
Walking past an old cemetery, my (then) 3-year-old son casually said, "My brother is in there." When I reminded him that he didn't have a brother, he said, "No, Mama... from before. When the other lady was my mommy."
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 here.
My sister got hit by a drunk driver in April and it totalled her car. She had my 4 year old nephew and my infant niece with her. When my mom arrived at the hospital my nephew asked her if he would thank the big guys. What big guys Kaiden? Grammy, the big guys that were in the car with me when it got loud and scary and they hugged me with their arms and kept me safe. Even the insurance adjuster cannot explain how either child escaped with not a scratch.
When my cousin was 2 years old or so, her mom got pregnant again. One day she went to hug her mom's belly and said "little brother sick".
A few days later she had a miscarriage...
When my son was small, I was talking to him about growing potatoes. I described how you bank up the earth around them as they grow, and he said "I used to do that when I was an old man".
Getting my two and a half year old daughter out of the bath one night, my wife and I were briefing her on how important it was she kept her privates clean. She casually replied "Oh, nobody 'scroofs' me there. They tried one night. They kicked the door in and tried but I fought back. I died and now I'm here." She said this like it was nothing.
Why are you crying?
What bad man?
"There." Points behind me at a dark corner of the room.
Lamp on bookshelf next to said darkened corner falls off as soon as I turn to look.
She slept in our bed that night.
My 3 year old daughter stood next to her new born brother and looked at him for awhile then turned and looked at me and said, "Daddy its a monster... we should bury it."
