Kids — they say the darnedest things, don't they? They're funny, they're creative, they're curious... and they're eerie as heck. In fact, thanks to one recent AskReddit thread discussing creepy things kids have said to the adults in their lives, now I absolutely know why I haven't reproduced. Kids are already odd little creatures; but when they start talking about death and the afterlife and drilling into their parents' stomachs (oh yes), to this, I say no thank you.
I'm sure a lot of it can be chalked up to their active imaginations and things they've heard on TV or from adults' conversations. But sometimes, it seems like there might be more to it than that. Search the web and you'll find countless testimonies of children recounting a past life in vivid detail, revealing specific facts they couldn't know unless they were there. My own curiosity has, in the past, led me to books and articles about how children are more sensitive to remembering past lives and tapping into their own psychic abilities because they have not yet been taught to "grow up," believe certain things, etc.
Of course we don't actually know whether past lives actually a thing — but if you couple all that with the fact that children have no filter, you have the makings of these creepy things that kiddies have said to adults. Head over to AskReddit for more.
