19 Parents Share The Creepiest Things Their Kids Have Ever Said

Kids say the darnedest things, but they also come out with ridiculously creepy things as well. When Reddit asked ‘what is the creepiest thing your child has ever said?’ Parents of the internet came forward with their stories and boy, they didn’t disappoint.

Here are nineteen of the most disturbing, chill inducing stories shared.  All we ask is for you to try and suppress the urge to lock your children in a cupboard after reading these.

1. “Daddy Its A Monster… We Should Bury It.”

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.”

2. “The Man Who Crawls On The Floor And Stands By My Bed.”

My co-worker’s four year old daughter always thought that the rattling of the water pipes in the kitchen cupboards were “white wolves” and the sound always scared her. One day she was sitting at the kitchen table and she said, “Mom. The white wolves aren’t bad… they’re our friends!”

Her mom encouraged the idea by saying, “Yes! The white wolves are protecting us. They are our friends.” Then her daughter added in, “They’re our friends, but not the man who crawls on the floor and stands by my bed”.

3. “Good Bye Dad.”

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.

4. “It’s The Closest I Can Get To Seeing Her Dead.”

He’s not my kid, but my godson is extremely creepy. He likes to stand in his little sister’s doorway while she naps and watches her sleep. I ask him why and he says, “it’s the closest I can get to seeing her dead.” He also likes to shove her fist in his mouth as far as it can go because he wants to “know what suffocating is like, just in case.” I’m pretty sure he’d be a serial killer if it wasn’t for Mario Kart.

5. “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.

6. You Will Die Soon

Not to me, but to his grandmother.

He was cuddling with her and being very sweet (he was about 3 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.

7. “I Want To Peel All Your Skin Off.”

I was sound asleep, and at around 6am I was woken up by my 4 year old daughters face inches from mine. She looked right into my eyes and whispered, “I want to peel all your skin off”.

The backstory here is I had been sunburned the previous week, and was starting to peel. In my sleep addled state however, it was pretty terrifying for a few seconds. I didn’t know if I was dreaming, or what was going on.

8. “When You Die, I’m Going To Eat You.”

My sons were about 2 and 4 when their pet goldfish died. I attempted to use the situation as an opportunity to discuss death and mortality. After I finished my explanation, my four year looked up at me with his big, blue eyes and asked, “Mommy, someday, will you die?” My heart filled with love and a little sadness, knowing this was one of those pivotal moments when the first bit of childhood innocence was lost,and I told him yes, someday, mommy will die.

“Good,” he said with a totally deadpan expression, and walked out of the room.

Later when we were about to flush the fish, he asked if we could eat him instead. I said no, we don’t eat pets because we love them, and he said, “When you die, I’m going to eat you.”

9. “Carson Is Gone, I Am Rick.”

When my son was little he, maybe 3, he used to do this weird crawl where he would slide his forehead along the floor. That was pretty creepy in itself. Then one night he crawled across the hallway into my room like that and stood up a few inches from my face and made a weird meow sound. He got into bed with me and went to sleep.

Another time he was freaking out about a monster in the basement so we went down and saw nothing, of course, and as I turned out the light and headed upstairs and he said “Hes right behind us now.” I might have peed a little.

Possibly the creepiest thing he did was one day I scolded him for misbehaving so he hid his head under his blanket. I pretended I couldn’t find him by saying “Where is my little Carson?” He slowly lowered the blanket and with a dead evil stare said, “Carson is gone, I am Rick.” I’m certain he’s possessed. We never knew any Ricks, as far I can remember. Still don’t. Never figured out where he picked up the name.

10. “I Died And Now I’m Here.”

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.

My wife and I were catatonic.

11. Baby Brother

“So I shouldn’t throw him in the fire?”

3 year old daughter holding her baby brother for the first time.

12. The Pretty Girl At The Cottage

My 3 year old nephew was at my cottage. He’s asked me numerous times about the “girl over there” while pointing at one of the back bedrooms. The place is small, and there is definitely nobody there so I just dismiss it as a really active imagination (he has lots of imaginary friends).

Then some friends are visiting and they have a daughter around the same age. She has never met my nephew. Twice in the one day she asked about the “pretty girl” while pointing at the exact same room. Definitely caught me out and I didn’t know what to think.

Then at Christmas my family was over at my place and my nephew points at a picture of my wife and asks if she is coming to visit us here or does she just stay at the cottage. My wife died ten years ago. Personally I don’t really believe in paranormal stuff so it’s probably just my logical brain putting together a bunch of kids ramblings but it definitely got my attention.

13. “He’s Behind You Now.”

“Go back to sleep, there isn’t anything under your bed”.

“He’s behind you now”.

Still haven’t gotten over that one and shiver at the memory.

14. “He’s Coming For You. You Better Hide.”

While not something my own child has said, my younger cousin (around 5 at the time) once drew a picture of a a black monster, looked up at me, and said “He told me to draw this. He’s coming for you. You better hide.”

15. “You Will Put Me Down, Down, Down In The Hole.”

I have a three year old who says some pretty strange stuff….

Last night: “Mommy.. the man, the very big man with big yellow eyes is looking at you.”

I look.. nothing. I tell him there is no man and he is make-believe. My son laughs, “Oh he is hiding now.” — 2 minutes later, “Oh no Mommy, you made him very mad. Now he says he will come when you are sleeping.”

Few weeks ago he tells me, “I’m not going to be four. I’m going to die. And you will put me down, down, down in the hole.” I tell him that isn’t true, and who told him that. He gets quiet and goes, “The man told me. But I will be scared, so after three night-nights you die too and come with me.”

Sheesh. As if I didn’t have bad dreams already.

16. “Daddy, I Love You So Much That I Want To Cut Your Head Off.”

A friend of mine’s child told him “Daddy, I love you so much that I want to cut your head off and carry it around so I can see your face whenever I want.”

17. The Bad Man

Why are you crying?

“Bad man”

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

18. Ham Can’t Scream

When I was a waitress, I watched a little girl (4ish) stab her plastic fork into her sandwich repeatedly, saying “die die die die die die”. When I asked her what she was doing (her mom was in the bathroom for a minute), she replied with a straight face, “I like to kill things, but mom says I shouldn’t. So I picked the ham because it can’t scream.”

19. Satan Wants To Meet You

A few months ago I asked me brother and his wife if their kids ever did any creepy. They both immediately looked at each other and seemed surprised that I had asked.

Apparently the last few couple of weeks they would hear my niece talking to herself in her bedroom. They assumed it was just her playful imagination so they didn’t give it much thought. One day however my brother asked her who she kept talking to, she said it was her new best friend Satan who visits her at her window every day. Her window is close to the ground so they were seriously concerned that there was someone actually going up to her window and kept a closer eye on her for the next few days.

Every single time they would hear her talking he would go outside to her windows but never found anyone. They began asking her more about his new friend and apart from his name being Satan she mentioned that he follows her everywhere she goes and that he promised her he will bring her a cake one day.

At a late cookout at my parents a week before they mentioned that, she took her mom outside to the backyard and pointed at the pitch black backyard and told her that her friend Satan was there and he wanted to meet her also. That made chills run down my spine since I was at that cookout also. After that they made her promise she wouldn’t talk to Satan anymore.

Conrad Aiken’s Childhood House 

As a child, Pulitzer Prize winner Conrad Aiken and his family moved from New England to Savannah, Georgia. His family was wealthy, but they had other problems; Conrad’s father was severely mentally ill. When Conrad was 11, he heard two bangs conclude an argument in his parents’ bedroom. When he went to investigate, he found them both dead. His father had killed Conrad’s mother and then killed himself. The current owner of the house has had paranormal investigators take a look at the property. They have reported floating orbs and strange voices, suggesting that the souls of the killed Aiken parents are still alive in their former home.

7 Haunted Places in Wyoming

7 Haunted Places in Wyoming

Wyoming is renowned for its wild beauty and rugged train. It’s also home to a host of spirits. From a entombed laborer to a headless bride, here are seven of The Cowboy State’s most infamous ghosts.

Old Faithful Inn – Yellowstone National Park

A number of chilling tales surround Yellowstone’s Old Faithful Inn, but the most famous involves a headless bride who lingers in the crow’s nest.

The story goes that in 1915 a rich young woman rebelled against her parents and married a household servant. The newlyweds traveled to Old Faithful Inn for their honeymoon, but quarreled repeatedly over money. After an especially loud fight, the new groom stormed out of the hotel and was never seen again. When staff went to check on the bride, they found her headless body in the bathtub. Days later, a foul odor led to the woman’s head in the crow’s nest.

Now, the headless bride roams the hotel’s upper reaches in a white dress, sobbing and cradling her bloodied head. Some think she’s searching for the man who betrayed her. Others think she’s out for revenge.

St. Mark’s Episcopal Church – Cheyenne

Built in the late 1800s, St. Mark’s is a historic church in Wyoming’s capital city. It’s also the site of a chilling tale.

According to local legend, two mason workers traveled from Sweden to complete the bell tower. Strangely, the men disappeared before the project was complete. Puzzled and annoyed, church officials hired replacements, and the men were unnerved to hearing banging and whispering coming from inside the tower walls.

Years later, an unnamed man came forward and claimed that one of the Swedish laborer had fallen to his death while working on the church. Terrified, the other laborer entombed his fallen friend in the tower wall and fled town.

Today, stories of ghostly whispers and clanging bells surround the old church. Tales posted online claim that discordant organ notes ring throughout the tower, though officials removed the instrument long ago.

Heart Mountain Relocation Center – Powell

After the 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor, the U.S. government forced more than 100,000 Japanese Americans to live in internment camps. One of these camps was Wyoming’s Heart Mountain Relocation Center, and nearly 14,000 passed people through the facility during its three years of operation. The center closed in 1945.

Today, Heart Mountain is a museum with a haunted reputation. Legend has it a friendly spirit follows visitors during the day. At night, shadows roam the grounds. Around 180 people died at the relocation center. Perhaps the spirits just want to return home.

Wyoming Frontier Prison – Rawlins

For 80 years, the Wyoming Frontier Prison housed some of the state’s most notorious criminals, including a woman who poisoned who her father’s pie and a train robber known as the gentleman bandit. Hundreds of inmates died at the old prison, and rumor has it many of them are still around.

Paranormal activity at the former jail includes strange lights, disembodied voices, and shadowy figures. The Ghost Adventures crew explored the site in 2013 and encountered everything from mysterious balls of light to an apparition in an old cell block.

Sweetwater County Library – Casper

Casper’s Sweetwater County Library sits atop a former graveyard dating back to the 1860s. Most of the graves were relocated long before the library opened in 1980. However, human remains, and even a coffin, have turned up, indicating not all of the graves made the move. Are the abandoned occupants responsible for the strange activity at the library?

Eerie events at Sweetwater include lights that switch on and off, doors that slam close, and whispers from empty rooms. The spirits’ favorite trick, however, is typing staff members’ names on typewriters, computers, or whatever technology is available. The paranormal activity is so prevalent, the library keeps a ghost log so patrons and staff can chronicle their spooky experiences.

Historic Occidental Hotel – Buffalo

Founded in 1880, Occidental Hotel has housed a number of famous (and infamous) guests, including Teddy Roosevelt and Butch Cassidy. Now, the historic hotel is reportedly home to Emily, a long-dead child that refuses to leave.

Though there’s no historical record of Emily, legend has it she was the daughter of a prostitute and died from cholera. Today, the spunky spirit enjoys playing pranks and spends her afterlife tapping on visitors’ shoulders or tugging at their clothing. At times, she appears in the Bordello Suite, startling guests by appearing at the foot of the bed.

Platte River

Since 1862, residents near the Platte River have spotted a phantom vessel known as The Ship of Death. Those who’ve seen it wished they hadn’t.

Legend has it, a white mist forms on the river then thickens to fog before an eerie gray ship emerges from its depths. Terrified witnesses report seeing a ghostly crew manning the vessel, and to their horror, a loved one laying silently on deck. In the first Death Ship sighting, it was a fiance. In another, a good friend. No matter the relationship, The Ship of Death is so named because the loved one spotted aboard dies a day or two later.

The True Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the Terrible Crimes of Ed…

The True Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the Terrible Crimes of Ed…

The True Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the Terrible Crimes of Ed Gein 

Although Leatherface may terrify in movie theatres, it was the bizarre creations of Gein’s gruesome imagination that first fixated a nation on the terrors that lie behind the most banal of small towns.

The notorious Ed Gein and his fictional counterpart Leatherface, from the horror classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Many see Ed Gein’s infamous crimes as waking a nation from its own innocence, even as social change was transforming 1950s America. In particular, the discovery of this farmer’s body snatching and murdering ways woke an entire nation to the darkness swirling beneath the façade of the American Dream. His practice of making keepsakes from dead bodies and from his own victims has inspired many horror films, novels, and other stories – including the landmark films Psycho and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The latter specifically embodied that same sense of dread – that something so awful could be hiding in plain sight.

To this day, Gein’s terrible legacy is a reminder that the smiling faces of friends and neighbors all too often hide an unfathomable darkness – one that may be an essential part of America itself.

Edward Theodore Gein was born on August 27, 1906, in the small farming community of Plainfield, Wisconsin. Between a slight growth over one eye and his effeminate personality, Ed was regularly bullied. He found little comfort at home, though, where his alcoholic father, George, endured verbal abuse from his mother, Augusta, for being unable to hold a job. They had moved to their 155-acre farm after selling a grocery shop in the city, but he’d had little luck in keeping work as a carpenter, tanner, or insurance salesman.

August, meanwhile, enforced a strict interpretation of Lutheran teachings and regularly read biblical verses on death and retribution to her sons. She instilled a strong fear of sexuality and drinking in her two sons, along with a belief that all women were inherently evil. Furthermore, they were forbidden from having anyone over and were often punished for even forging friendships in the first place. So, it is far from surprising that, by all accounts, Ed grew up into a reclusive young man who often laughed at jokes only he seemed to hear.

Then, on April 1, 1940, George Gein died at 66 years of age when his heart gave out. The brothers began picking up odd jobs to support the farm, and their neighbors found the two to be reliable handymen, though Ed also took to babysitting on the side. Henry, meanwhile, began dating a divorced mother of two and considered moving in with her. He began speaking ill of their abusively co-dependent mother around Ed to try to pull him from her clutches, but that likely drew a wedge between the brothers, instead.

In the midst of these changes, Henry died in a seeming tragedy – or possible early sign of Ed’s homicidal tendencies. In 1945, the two brothers were managing a brush fire on their property outside Plainfield when it got out of control, and the fire department was called in. After the flames died down, Ed reported that his brother had gone missing, though he was soon found, dead from asphyxiation. The coroner did not note anything suspicious, though he later recalled that Henry had a head trauma that could have resulted from foul play.

Augusta, meanwhile, had grown to rely on Ed, as a stroke had left her relatively immobile for several years. She remained as fanatical as ever, though, with one local story telling how she witnessed a man kill a dog but focused on the fact that he invited an unmarried woman into his house. However, she too passed away in 1945, at the age of 67, and Ed was left without friends or family. He held onto their farm but boarded up the rooms that his mother had used, including the drawing room and entire upstairs.

In time, he became more and more of a recluse, with the kitchen and single room that he used becoming more and more run-down. Left to his own devices, Ed Gein only ever left the house to do occasional work for a municipal road crew or to help with crop-threshing. After selling his brother’s land, he began relying upon a farm subsidy in 1951. At the same time, his hobbies focused on devouring books about cannibals, the Nazis’ atrocities, and various aspects of human anatomy. Soon enough, he started digging up recently-buried women who resembled his mother – dissecting them and tanning skin to experiment in taxidermy. But things changed when he started hunting the living.

On November 16, 1957, Bernice Worden, the owner of Plainfield’s hardware store, disappeared – her truck having driven out of town around 9:30 AM. After the store remained closed all day, her son, Deputy Sheriff Frank Worden, entered around 5 PM to find the register open with blood on the floor and a lone receipt for antifreeze on the counter. Recalling that Ed Gein had said he’d stop by to buy antifreeze the night before, Worden pointed out the connection, and Gein was arrested that same evening.

Upon searching his family’s farm, the authorities found much more than they had bargained for. To start, they discovered Bernice’s decapitated body hanging upside down from her wrists in the shed. She’d been shot with a .22-caliber rifle and dressed out like an animal, with her head stuffed in a burlap sack and her heart sitting in front of the stove. In further examining Gein’s home, the police also found the remains of missing tavern owner Mary Hogan, age 54, who’d disappeared in December 1954. She was in pieces, as well – her face tanned as a mask in a paper bag and her skull hidden away in a box.

But that was not the end of the gore in the Gein family home. They found skulls mounted atop his bedposts, with others made into bowls. Skin had been used to create a wastebasket and chair coverings, and Gein had fashioned clothing from the dead, as well. Police found a shoulder-to-waist corset made from a woman’s tanned torso, along with multiple face masks and leggings crafted from human leg skin. Ed had stored 9 vulva in a shoebox, including 2 from teenagers, and he kept a box of noses, a belt of nipples, a face lampshade, and a window shade drawstring made from a pair of lips. All told, the remains had come from around 15 women’s bodies.

Gein told investigators that he’d regularly entered a hypnotic state and visited local graveyards on around 40 occasions between 1947 and 52. While he could normally stop himself from grave-robbing, Ed often returned home with parts of women whom he thought resembled his mother. On those occasions, he would tan their skin to make the gruesome paraphernalia discovered in his home. He confessed to robbing 9 graves and led authorities to some to demonstrate that he’d been strong enough to do the work on his own.

At one point, Gein admitted that he’d realized he wanted to become a woman after his mother had died. To satisfy his desire, he’d started to create a woman suit and had often donned the tanned skin. During the questioning, though, Sheriff Art Schley banged Gein’s head face-first into a brick wall – claiming later to be traumatized by the man’s crimes. Schley was horrified when this made the confession inadmissible in court, and he later died of heart failure just before Gein’s trial. With no confession and no warrant to have conducted the search in the first place, the accused pled not guilty and was declared unfit for trial.

Meanwhile, the people of Plainfield who had been Gein’s neighbors tried to process his actions. For some, the horror was overwhelming, including one teenager who had asked Gein about his masks only to be told that they were relics from the Philippines, sent by a cousin during World War II. At the same time, other murders suddenly seemed connected, including the disappearance of babysitter Evelyn Hartley in 1953. With Gein’s crimes highlighted on Life and Time covers, the town and the entire country were shaken to the core.

Ed Gein was eventually tried for the murder of Bernice Worden and sentenced to life in prison. However, in a second trial, he was found not guilty by reason of insanity and sent to Central State Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Waupun, Wisconsin. He was diagnosed as schizophrenic and never tried for the murder of Mary Hogan, as he would spend the rest of his life in a mental health facility either way. In 1968, Gein was sent to Mendota Mental Health Institute in Madison, where he died from lung cancer at age 77 in 1984.

Back in Plainfield, the Gein farm burned down after being auctioned off in 1958, and his car was sold to a carnival sideshow for people to gawk at. In the long run, Gein’s actions inspired a long list of fictional serial killers, too, from Psycho’s Norman Bates to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’s Leatherface, and, most recently, Bloody Face in American Horror Story: Asylum. Each plays on the nightmares beneath the American dream, but none captures the true horror of Ed Gein’s mind – or the objects that he crafted from human beings.

“Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace”
