10 Extra Creepy Comments Children Have Said

Kids are known to surprise us on a daily basis but sometimes they also just straight-out give us the heebie-jeebies. Many children have demonstrated the ability to remember previous lives or see paranormal activity and have shared this knowledge with their parents or carers.

While it’s hard to tell where these creepy comments children have said have come from, whether they are completely made up or have some merit, we find them quite interesting and wanted to share some of these tales.

These are our top 10 most-intriguing comments that gave us goosebumps (See the total list here). Has your child ever said something that can beat these ones? Share it in the comments below!

10. Little brother is sick

“When my cousin was 2 years old or so, her mom got pregnant again. One day she went to hug her mom’s belly and said “Little brother sick.” 

A few days later she had a miscarriage…”

9. Car crash premonition

“We were driving down a dark, snowy highway late one evening – final stretch of a 16- hour-long road trip. My son, who was around 4 or 5 at the time, was in the back seat and becoming a bit restless. He suddenly covered his face with a blanket and announced loudly, “I don’t want to get glass on my face!”

A few moments later, a pick-up truck towing some snowmobiles pulled out in front of a tractor-trailer a few cars in front of us and got hit, spinning out into the median.”



8. Pretty girl

“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 dismissed it as a really active imagination (he has lots of imaginary friends).

Then some friends [were] visiting and they have a daughter around the same age. She has never met my nephew. Twice in one day, she asked about the “pretty girl” while pointing at the exact same room. 

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.”

7. Starry night

“Lying out in the backyard with my then 4yr old son looking up at the stars one night:

My son: “When are they coming to get me?”
Me: “Who?”
Him: “My people” and pointed up at the stars.
Me: “What?”

6. Car on fire

“[My son] was maybe 5 or 6 years old [and said]: 

“Before I was born here, I had a sister, right? Her and my other Mom are so old now. They were ok when the car was on fire, but I sure wasn’t!”

It was totally out of the blue…”

5. Shiny man saved me

“When my oldest brother was 3 or 4, he fell into my cousins’ pool. The pool didn’t have a ladder and was several inches to reach to get out, no way for a 3-year-old that has never swum in his life to escape.

Well, while all the adults were talking they hear him screaming and splashing, and then silence. When they ran to get him, he was standing right next to the pool and he was soaking wet.

When they asked him what happened, he said, “I fell in the pool and couldn’t get out, then a shiny man pulled me out.”

4. A boy named Jodi

“My son had an imaginary friend when he was about 3 – a little boy named Jodi who died from “drinking medicine water”.

There’s a gravestone in our local cemetery from the 70s of a 4yr old boy named Jodi. It’s my opinion that my son had a ghost friend when he was younger.” 


3. Only one grandma

“When I was young, like maybe two years old, my grandma was in the hospital, dying of cancer. Obviously, I had no idea what was going on, but apparently, one day when my mother and Aunt were watching me, I suddenly looked at them and said, “Only one Grandma”

They kept trying to convince me otherwise. That no, “I had two grandmas.” But I kept repeating that line over and over. 

Then the phone rang. It was my uncle calling to tell my mother that my grandma [in hospital] had passed a few minutes ago.”

2. Mr. Peterson

“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 whilst 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.”

And in the creepy comments children have said category, our winner is…

1. The man is watching 

“I used to work with toddlers [in a daycare]. 

We had one girl who got so upset at changing time. She would cry and say, “No, the man is watching!” when she was on the changing table. She would point to the ceiling tiles (sometimes the wind from the garden door knocked one out of place) and say he was watching.

Freaked us all out. We all looked but there was definitely no one there. We had to change her on a mat on the floor inside of a stall because she was so upset. We did that for the rest of the year.

The next year’s class starts… A little boy (these kids did not know each other at all!) starts crying on the changing table.

“No! The man is watching!”, pointing at the ceiling tiles again.

Same situation for the rest of the year. Had to change him in a stall on the floor. There was never anyone in the ceiling but it freaked us all out constantly!”
