Kids Say The CREEPIEST Things: 37 Parents Reveal The Most Disturbing Thing Their Child Ever Said

31. “Where will Shelia sleep now?”

“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. Off handedly, 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.’

A year later, my youngest daughter turned 2 and started having the same screaming fits. Talking to her, she described the same lady named ‘Shelia.’

Skip forward 3 years. We’d never talked with our kids about it, figuring there had to be some active imaginations and sibling story telling involved. Hadn’t come up in at least 2 years. We moved with our three kids, including a 2.5-year-old son. First night in the new house, he asked ‘Where will Shelia sleep now?’”


32. “Murrrrrrrrrderrrrrrrrrr.”

“My 15 month old daughter and I were looking at pictures of animals and I was asking her what sounds they make. She would shout the responses. ‘What does the cow say?’ ‘MOO!’ ‘What does the lion say?’ ‘RAWR!’ ‘What does the polar bear say?’ She looked me right in the eyes and said, softly, ‘murrrrrrrrrderrrrrrrrrr.’

I mean, she’s not wrong. Polar bears are badasses.”


33. “Cedric comes out to play with me when I go to bed.”

“About a week after moving out 2-year-old upstairs into her own room, my wife and I were up there playing with her and she says,

‘Cedric comes out to play with me when I go to bed.’

My wife asked her where he comes from, and she says ‘From over in the corner.’

I had recently walled off a lower section of the room (slanted ceilings) that used to have a creepy 3 foot tall door in it. She pointed right to where the door used to be.”
