Some time ago, we published an article about the creepiest things children have ever said that we found on Reddit. We were really surprised to see that our readers shared their own impressive stories in the comments. And they were also really creepy.

In this article, Bright Side has put together your most interesting stories. Here they are.

  • When my brother was little, his uncle was holding him in his arms once, and suddenly my brother said, “Do you remember how I was holding you when you were little?” Nika Ozz
  • My grandmother told me this story. When I was 5, I would often run to our neighbor’s orchard to get some apples. I always chose only those that were red and ripe. Once, my grandma couldn’t find me in our yard and decided to go look for me in the orchard. This orchard was untended, so she had to search for me for a while until she heard me talking to someone. I was saying something like, “Bring me only red apples, I don’t like green ones.” When she asked me who I had been talking to, I answered that it was our neighbor, granny Lena. She had always given me apples. My grandma got so scared that she even considered moving to another village. It turns out that granny Lena had died 15 years earlier. She had been lonely because her husband and sons had died during World War II. So she used to spend all of her time taking care of her apple orchard. Valeria Berkuta
  • When my brother was 3-4 years old, he used to tell stories about how he had served in the army and had been a tankman. We laughed first. “What an imagination!” we thought. But once he described how he had burnt in the tank alive. Our great-grandfather used to be a tankman in 1943. Of course, my brother never met him. My brother is 20 now, and he’s the spitting-image of our great-grandfather. Ekaterina Godyna
  • When I was 6 years old, my twin brother and I went to play in our grandma’s bedroom. When we entered it we saw an old woman who was sitting in an armchair and smiling at us. We got really scared and ran to our grandmother to ask who she was. Grandma said that it was her mother and that she wouldn’t hurt us. She had died in that room about 20 years earlier. Robin Daines
  • The 3-year-old son of my friend once entered the bathroom where she was taking shower and said, “Mom, do you remember how you pushed me from the bicycle and I hit my head really bad?” My friend began to cry. When she had been a child, she accidentally pushed her brother from a bicycle. And her brother had died in a car accident 10 years before her son was born. Cristiane Cris Machado
  • When my son was 4, he used to say that he had known me before he chose me. He also said that he still remembered how to play a guitar. Once he heard some old song on the radio and cried that it was the song he used to play. We googled it. The guitar player from this band had died 3 months before our son was born. Apple
  • At the age of 4, my son liked to tell me how my father used to love me. My father had died long before my son was born. When I asked him how he could know that, he said, “I can remember it because him is me!” Gulya Bessonova
  • My niece used to have 3 imaginary friends: Larry, Mo, and Danny. Danny was my son who had died from SIDS 2 years before my niece was born. Michelle Edeburn
  • My 2-year-old son once asked me during lunch, “Mom, will this clown eat with us too?” Me: “What clown?” My son pointed at the empty chair. That night, I went around the entire house with a burning sage thinking that I was like an exorcist. Stefanie Dürr
  • When my sister accidentally dropped our father’s box with threads and buttons, her daughter cried, “Mom, pick everything up quickly, grandpa is watching!” Our father had died long time ago. At that time my niece was 5 years old and she scared us pretty badly. Nastya Sheremetieva
  • When my daughter was 4 she asked whether I remembered her. I said, “Of course, you are my baby girl.” But then she replied that she used to be my best friend Peggy. She began to recall how we used to have fun together, told me the names of her sisters and how she died. Peggy had died 20 years earlier when she 16. 2 years later we went to my home town. My daughter asked me to show her her old house telling me how to get there. It was really creepy, but now I know that my friend is fine. Nancy Jarabeck
  • When my younger daughter died, her 7-year-old sister came up to me and said, “Mom, don’t be sad, she’ll come back to us. She won’t be the way she was but she will be back, just wait.” When I asked her how she could know that, she replied, “I just know, mom. Our grandpa will take care of her before she returns.” I still can’t forget it. It gives me hope and the strength to live. Cami Souza
  • Alex was 3 when we were riding a bus across town. We went to a place we had never been before. We saw a cemetery fence from the window. Alex suddenly said, “I know this place! My mother is buried here!” Then he looked at me confused and added silently, “My other mother, Marina...” He had never visited a cemetery before. Anna Klimenok
  • I was reading a news story on the internet about 2 children who had drowned and there was also a photo of them. They were at home hugging. My 4-year-old son saw this photo and asked me, “Why is there water around them?” FYI, my son can’t read. Mariya Stanchevskaya
  • My 4-year-old son didn’t want to learn how to swim. I came up to him every 2 minutes and said, “Enough sitting on the shore, go, Alex will teach you, he’s a professional swimmer.” 5 minutes later Alex began to drown with another 4-year-old boy. My son sounded the alarm, but only the boy was able to be rescued. When Alex’s mother arrived, my son assured her that he saw how Alex had come out of water and left. When Alex’s body was found, forensics defined that he died within 5 minutes. This means that he had died before my son saw him coming out of the water on the shore. Evgenia Boldina
  • My 2-year-old son saw a photo of my mother-in-law and said that he had visited her in heaven with many other children. He even listed their names. His grandmother died 3 years before he was born. Natalia Waschtschenko
  • My niece gave me a paper angel a week before she found out I was pregnant. She said, “There, this is your angel now.” I asked, “Who is he?” And she replied, “Angels are the children who haven’t been born yet.” Lara Zorina
  • My 3-year-old daughter once told me that God sent her to me because she had behaved badly. Aizhan Khamit
  • My daughter was 3 years old. At that time, I had just lost my child by miscarriage and was crying all the time. Once she came up to me and said, “Mom, if you want my brother back you need to try again. We are given 3 opportunities to come back to the same parent.” Sandra Orozco
  • When my 3-year-old son drowned, my older son who was 5 came to my room where I was crying. He asked me to stop and said that Derime would come back. He also said he would come back with a friend. 18 months later I gave birth to twins. It was 2 boys. Bukky Obazenu

  • My mother says that when I was 3 years old she hit me and I said, “When I was your father, I never hit you.” Eric Yamauti

  • When my son was 3 we went to the cemetery to put some flowers on my father’s grave. My husband put the flowers down, but then my son suddenly said, “My grandpa never liked these flowers.” So we went back to the flower shop and my son chose different flowers. We returned to the grave, put the flowers down, and my son said that now his grandpa was happy. Éden Hassan
  • When I was lulling my son to sleep, I told him that I loved him. He replied half-asleep that he loved me more, since the moment he had chosen me. Patty Negrita

Do you agree that these stories are a bit surprising? Do you think there is a logical explanation to what these children said?

Weird, they erase comments here? Someone replied to mine, was going to read it, now all comments are gone?


I don't know if logical explanation is the right way to put it but when our second oldest ( who is now almost 25) was around 2 years old he was sitting on his bed one day and asked if we remembered when he was older and broke his arm when he fell out of a tree. He had never climbed a tree and he specifically said when he was older. He has always had quite the imagination but he was serious. We had no answer for him. He was also reading at 3- not ABC books but Greek mythology. Some things just don't have explanations that we can understand- they just are.


This is really creepy, but if these stories are true, does it mean that reincarnation exists?
