Kids say the darndest things, as the old saying goes. They also say some of the most horrifying things, as well. Most of the time it’s just because they don’t know any better, but now and then something slips out that is positively freaky, and it seems like just about everyone has heard a story about something they said, a friend said, or even their own kids have said that scared them witless. Over the last year, people have been sharing their most terrifying and disturbing experiences with kids and the awful things they say on Reddit. Here are some that are guaranteed to give you nightmares.


The Snake Neck Man

“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.”


The Baby Monster

“My 3-year-old daughter stood next to her newborn brother and looked at him for a while, then turned and looked at me and said, ‘Daddy it’s a monster…we should bury it.”


Black Circle Control

“My 5-year-old son asked me last week, ‘What do you see through the black circles in my eyes when you’re controlling me when I’m at school?’”


Getting the Baby Out

“My noticeably pregnant sister and I were having a conversation at the dining room table. My 4-year-old son was also present and asked my sister if there was a baby in her belly. She affirmed. He, completely straight faced, slid from his chair and headed for the kitchen saying, ‘We need to get it out. I’ll go get the knife.’ I don’t even know…”


The Monster Behind You

“’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.”


Eating Your Heart

“My daughter said to me that there is a woman who watches her watch movies in her room and sleeps on the ceiling above her bed when she sleeps. She also says it does not like me and wants to eat my heart. My kid watches Elmo and Dinosaur train. Where in the hell did she get this from?”


Loving Daddy Too Much

“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.’”


Master Cthulhu

“My son was about 3-years-old and was putting up his stuffed animals into a bin. He would pick each one up, say its name, and then into the toy bin it went. He picked up his bear and said ‘Bear’, then put it away, to his dog and say ‘Puppy’, and put it away. Then he picked up the stuffed Cthulhu one of my friends gave him, looked squarely at it, and said ‘Master’, then put it into the bin and went onto the next one.”


Sinus Deliciousness

“During my daughter’s sixth year, I had impacted sinuses. In one strenuous effort, a mass the size of a grape broke loose and hit the tissue with the sound straight out of a horror flick. I glanced at it to check for traces of brain matter and quickly refolded the tissue. My daughter asked if she could see it. I declined. She responded with, ‘I promise I won’t eat it.’ That is all.


Great Grandma Viola

“My mom told me that when I was about four or five I would sit and talk to an imaginary friend. When she asked who I was talking to, I said it was Viola and she was teaching me how to draw. My mom flipped out because Viola was my great grandmother and she was an artist. She died nearly 20 years before I was born.”
