21-25 Creepiest Things Children
21. When my daughter was 4, she woke me up on a dark morning with this gem, “Mom…wake up….mom. There’s a girl in my room who doesn’t have a face.”
The sun wasn’t up and my tired brain was like WTF. I let out a small giggle from my unease. She pulled me by my arm out of bed and took me to her room to show me the girl. She tells me it’s under her bed, and I’m thinking when did her imagination get so creepy. So I look under her bed, knowing if this was a horror movie this would be a stupid move. Then I see the girl without a face. It wasn’t her imagination. It was one of her dolls, with a pair of doll pants pulled over her face. I laughed, and my daughter was belly laughing so hard because she loves doing silly things. But seriously in those few moments, she freaked me out so bad.
22. While not something my own child has said, my younger cousin (around 5 at the time) once drew a picture of a black monster, looked up at me, and said “He told me to draw this. He’s coming for you. You better hide.”
23. When I was about 4, I would remember talking to “Mr. Peterson” whenever I was at my grandmother’s house. He looked like a hobo from the great depression and had a guitar and sang me old-timey blues. He told me that he died when he fell off a train he was riding whist drunk on moonshine. I stopped seeing him when I was about 6.
Anyway, 6 months ago I found my dad’s old acoustic guitar and started playing, and my little cousin told me “Mr.Peterson is proud of you!” And left.
I don’t know what to think
24. “My brain is telling me to do things I don’t want to do.” He’s 4. Like many kids, he has an imaginary friend. He has just correctly identified the imaginary friend as “my brain.” So when he says “my brain is telling me to do things I don’t want to do,” he means “my imaginary friend wants to play a game that I don’t want to.” Now if only the game wasn’t “burn them! burn them all!”
25. My mom’s dad died 10 years before I was born. I was about 6 or 7 when my parents divorced. The day before my mom told me they were divorcing apparently I was at the kitchen table drawing or something while my mom cooked tea. She says I stopped instantly and looked toward the front door as if I’d heard it open. I stared for a long time, then giggled, turned toward my mom and said: “Grand-dad says don’t worry, everything will be okay and he won’t let anything bad happen.” I then began humming and went back to my drawing. My mom says it’s the single creepiest thing that’s ever happened to her, and I have no memory of it happening.
