Parents Share the Creepiest Things They’ve Heard Their Kids Say

Kids Say the Darnedest Things.

It’s amazing how easily kids can crack you up just because of the strange things these say. From misusing or mispronouncing words to making perfectly correct sentences so strange you just couldn’t have expected, half the joy of raising a little one is listening to the wild and crazy things that come out of their mouth.

But sometimes, the laughter children inadvertently supply can turn toward terror, because when a little kid says something creepy, it automatically comes out scary than if an adult said the same thing.

We can’t explain the actions of kids. In fact, lots of things they do may come off as downright discomforting; after all, kids are used in horror movies so often simply due to the fact that—while they should represent all things innocent and pure—turning them creepy or evil raises the hairs on the back of our necks.

Since we already know kids say the darnedest things, parents were asked to share the CREEPIEST things they have heard their children say, and their answers were pretty terrifying.

These are worse than horror movies…

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. (UnfortunateBirthMark)

Check on HIM? If I were you, I’d be sleeping with one eye open. (PERVERSE_PSYCHOLOGY)

The Man With the Snake Neck

While changing my daughter in front of the open closet door. She kept looking around me and laughing. I asked her what was so funny. She said, “the man.” To which I replied, “what man?” She then pointed at the closet and said, “the man with the snake neck.” I turn around and nothing was there. I’m afraid to look into the history of my house to see if anyone hung themselves in the closet. At least she wasn’t scared. (QuagmireDP)
