Gaining over 10,000 comments in less than 24 hours, the question ‘What is the creepiest thing your young child has ever said to you?’ has become a hit on online forum Reddit.
Bewildered parents posted comments in their thousands, mostly concerning remarks about death. TNS has compiled some of the funniest and scariest here.
User UnfortunateBirthmark comments: ‘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."’
‘’I jokingly asked: "What's the best way to get a girlfriend?"’ says user abluesxs. ‘Seven-year-old's response: "Tell her to be my girlfriend or she'll never see her parents again."’
NotTomPettysGirl contributed a story about her son and his grandmother; ‘He was cuddling with her and being very sweet (he was about three at the time). He takes her face in his hands, and brings his face close to hers, then tells her that she's very old, and will die soon. Then he makes a point of looking at the clock.’
Redditor evillawnornament commented that while pushing his head underwater in a swimming pool his child said, ‘Daddy sleep.’
A strange story is recounted by user psalm_69 who had been sunburnt before the unnerving incident with his daughter. ‘Around 6am I was woken up by my four year old daughter's face inches from mine,’ the user says, ‘She looked right into my eyes and whispered, "I want to peel all your skin off.”’
Tom Zarek remembers, ‘When I was about three we had a cat that had stillborn kittens. I asked my father if we could make crosses for them, which he did.’ He remembers asking his father, "Aren't those too small?" to which his dad replied, "What do you mean?" Without skipping a beat, Zarek responded, "aren't we going to nail them to them?" After several moments silence, his father calmly said, "We're not going to do that."
Lastly, contributor JoelFromBookkeeping replays an odd event from his own childhood. He writes, "Mommy look what I learned!" *inserts tongue into moms mouth during good night kiss* "I learned it from a movie! It means you love someone!" *mom calmly gets up without saying a word and walks to her room*’
