15+ Children Who Really Tickled Their Parent’s Nerves With Chilling Stories

year ago

Children have an uncanny ability to create their own unique universe, one that is often beyond the grasp of adults. In this realm, their imagination knows no bounds, and they can conjure up scenarios and ideas that may seem unsettling or downright creepy to grown-ups.

  • I was dressing my daughter after a bath, she was sitting on my bed. She looked over at the blankets and asked if a baby was there? I didn’t know yet that I was pregnant. © KimberlyDBr / Reddit
  • A few weeks ago, I was getting breakfast ready for my 3-year-old when he nonchalantly told me his grandma fell down the stairs. About an hour later, Grandpa calls us to tell us Grandma had fallen down the stairs. © Skeletor6*** / Reddit
  • My 3 year old daughter came in to our room and told me she couldn’t go to bed because there was a monster under it. After much reassurance she still insisting that there was a monster under the bed. Crawled under all the while telling her monsters aren’t real. And pulled out Mike Wazoski from Monsters Inc! She said thank you, hugged him and crawled into bed. © rm8ty / Reddit
  • Someone would always entertain my daughter when she was a baby. We would be home alone, and she would lie down, stare in front of her, and laugh. When she grew older, she said it was a woman in red. © jumar / Pikabu

“My daughter jumped violently just as I took the pic”.

  • My son when aged around 3 told me that he was in heaven, there was photos of people and he had to choose a mum and dad, there was a big button saying “are you sure” , he said he pressed it and came to live with us. © picklepot22 / Reddit
  • My 2-year-old son was standing in his crib. When my wife approached him, he tilted his head to the side and stared at her. She asked him what he was doing, and he said, “Looking for my baby sister in your tummy.” Later we found out that she was 2 weeks pregnant at the time, and it was a girl. © Jmersh / Reddit
  • A friend of mine told me that her son (who was 4) would tell her things like, “My Mars mom never made me clean up my room.” She asked her son some more about this, and apparently they lived for 10,000 years on Mars before he was born to her. © rebble_yell / Reddit
  • My 9-year-old son said once that he could see many spirits in the cloudless summer sky, in the form of colorful balloons. According to him, there were especially many of them that day. It’s really creepy to hear something like that. © Natalya Ilyashevich
  • When my daughter was about 3 years old, she had a sound machine in her room to help her sleep. We typically have it in the babbling brook, or-cricket sounds. One night, I was putting her to bed and turned on the sound machine. She had been playing with it earlier and the sound was left the sound of a beating heart. After a few minutes of lying there with her in the dark, she looked at me and said “I didn’t like being in mommy’s tummy, it was dark and wet and I don’t want to go back in there, OK?”. © thumbwrestleme / Reddit
  • My daughter was around 4 or 5 at the time. One night while she was getting ready for bed, I overheard her talking to someone in her room. I poked my head in and asked if she was calling for me. Her words, “No. I was talking to the little boy who lives in my closet... He’s dead.” © TaffetaDarling / Reddit
  • My daughter, about 6 months ago, was having a conversation to herself. I asked who she was talking too, “Uncle Lee.” My brother died 8 years before she was born. © SpaceMan*****83 / Reddit
  • After moving to a new apartment, my 3-year-old son would often say that he saw a woman in different corners. I asked him what she was like, and he described her and said that she was kind. And I just thought that it was fine and forgot about it. © Malu0603 / Pikabu

“My cousin’s son has been photocopying his toys and leaving the pictures all over the house”.

  • Changing my sons diaper and he stares me dead in the eye and says, “Tick tock tick tock... That, my friend, Is the sound. Of time. Running out. For You.” Freaked me out. Only later did I learn it was from a batman movie we had rented for him. © Velln / Reddit
  • My oldest kept talking in his bed past bedtime. When we asked him who he was talking to he said he was talking to the floating white lady. © MistahZig / Reddit
  • My then 2-year-old daughter used to scream in the night, and told my wife and I it was because she was visited by a lady. A few weeks later, she stopped screaming.
    Offhandedly, I asked if the lady had stopped coming. She answered, “No, she’s just nice now. Her name is Shelia. She sleeps in my bed sometimes.” © Jimslam / Reddit
  • A friend of mine told a scary story about her kid that made shivers run down my spine. She heard her daughter talking to someone in the room. She went in and asked, “Did you call me?” She replied, “No, I was saying goodbye to my other mom.” My friend, “What other mom?”
    And the girl whispered, “She is an old woman. She sometimes comes to me, tells me stories, and sings. And she asked me to call her mom.” After that my friend couldn’t sleep for a week, she even had to consult a therapist. They calmed her down, they said that children like to imagine things at this age.
