Is there anything more terrifying than a kid with an imaginary friend? Think about it, we write it off as an overactive imagination, but what if this kid is actually seeing someone.
Recently a mom on Reddit asked what the scariest thing a parent has heard their child say about their imaginary friend.
Seriously, the answers were completely terrifying.
The Sign of the Cross
My daughter used to tell me about a man who came into her room every night and put the sign of the cross on her forehead. I thought it was just a dream. Then my mother-in-law sent over some family photos. My daughter looked right at the picture of my husband’s father (who has been dead for 16 years) and said ‘That’s the man who comes into my room at night!’ My husband later told me his father would always do the sign of the cross on his forehead when he was young.
Dodo and DeeDee
When my older daughter was two or three, she used to have a couple of imaginary friends, Dodo and DeeDee. They were typical imaginary friends. She would talk to them and play with them, and tell me about their lives.
Then one day, when she was about three, she was talking on her play phone when I walked into the room. She “hung up” her phone and said to me (with a completely flat voice and deadpan expression): “The Evil is coming.”
