17 Creepy Things Children Have Ever Said That Are Spine Chilling

Childhood is a shapeshifting phase where children develop a connection to this new world, learn about it, and manage to express their emotions. During all of this evolving process, they tend to have an active imagination. Children make up things without any constraints and boundaries. Many times we’ve overheard them make-believe that they are a superhero with a towel wrapped around their neck as a cape trying to save the teddy bear from a gigantic pillow monster. Or, when they tell us they have a friend we can’t see, but they play with them. While all these stories are made up and have no reality in them, sometimes, the events they tell us about chill us to the bone.

It’s common for kids to do that, but at times their imagination is too scary and it makes us question a lot of things. Below we have 17 tweets from parents sharing the most terrifying things their kids have ever said.

It’s okay to have imaginary friends as long as they don’t talk back.

Being imaginative is not a bad thing. It allows children to develop crucial psychological and emotional capacities that aid in providing a better understanding of the world. This helps to sharpen their reasoning and problem-solving abilities which are the building blocks of a strong personality.

According to child psychologist Sally Goddard Blythe, who is also the director of The Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology and author of the book “The Genius of Natural Childhood: Secrets of Thriving Children, “This kind of play allows children to tap into their creativity and really run with it, without any boundaries, in a way that’s very freeing.” Further, she adds “Put simply, imagination is the ability to create visual images in the mind’s eye, which allows us to explore all sorts of images and ideas without being constrained by the limits of the physical world. This is how children begin to develop problem-solving skills, coming up with new possibilities, new ways of seeing and being, which develop important faculties in critical thinking that will help the child throughout life.”

We are all convinced here.
