A list of the most chilling things children say to their parents has become a hit on the online-forum Reddit, gaining more than 10,000 comments in less than 24 hours.
Titled 'What is the creepiest thing your young child has ever said to you?', most of the posts from the forum users - dubbed Redditors - concerned comments about death.
"I was tucking in my two-year-old," said user UnfortunateBirthMark. "He said 'Goodbye dad.' I said, 'No we say good night.' He said, 'I know. But this time it's goodbye."
"Had to check on him a few times to make sure he was still there," added the shocked parent.
User Like-I-was-sayin commented: "My three-year-old daughter stood next to her new born brother and looked at him for a while then turned and looked at me and said, 'Daddy, it's a monster we should bury it."
"Congratulations on giving birth to the antichrist," another Redditor replied.
Contributor NotTomPettysGirl shared a haunting story from when her three-year-old son was with his grandmother: "He was cuddling with her and being very sweet. He takes her face in his hands, brings his face close to hers, then tells her that she's very old and will die soon.
"Then he makes a point of looking at the clock," added the bemused parent.
Abluesxs shared her seven-year-old's strange approach to dating, having asked her son: "What's the best way to get a girlfriend?"
The response: "Tell her to be my girlfriend or she'll never see her parents again."
Redditor Psalm-96 recounted one unnerving incident with his daughter. "I was sound asleep, and at around 6am I was woken up by my four-year-old daughter's face inches from mine. She looked right into my eyes and whispered, 'I want to peel all your skin off."
Psalm-96 had recently been sunburnt on holiday, he added.
Contributor Hsertich shared a story his mother had told him from when his brother was a child: "I guess he was sleepwalking and she was trying to coax him back to bed and he said something along the lines of 'I would but the devil is behind you."
Lastly, Tom-Zarek recounted a disturbing tale from his own childhood. When he was three years old, his cat had given birth to still born kittens. "I asked my father if we could make crosses for them, which we did.
"As we were making them I asked, 'Aren't those too small?' my Dad replied, 'What do you mean?' to which I said 'Aren't we going to nail them to them?"
"After several moments silence my father said: 'We're not going to do that'."
