Redditor 'Psalm-96' related a story about his four-year-old daughter waking him up at 6am, leaning in and whispering the words: "I want to peel all your skin off".

I'm really not sure why people find this creepy at all, in fact, if people keep labeling events like this creepy then the events will always have a negative connotation. The media and social conditioning has polluted most people's minds into thinking things like this are bad, scary, weird, or not real.
(Realtruth smashes the creepy music sound clips that accompany all ghost chasing and paranormal shows)
Think about this.
1) You are not the name on your birth certificate
2) You are not the body you reside in currently
3) You are not your profession, career, or anything else you have experienced in this life.
4) Want proof? Go to a graveyard, funeral home, or wake. Everyone leaves their physical shells sooner or later.
So why the thinking that spirits, or things kids see, or say are weird? They just haven't been conditioned by the BS and negativity of adult thinking yet, but that does change in time for many.
Suggestion listen to kids and don't be condescending you might just learn something worthwhile.

There is another thread on here right now that deals with adult experiences, i dont want to link to it but it was on the first page of recent posts. I found these 2 threads very similar, different enough to warrant separate threads so not saying "already been posted" just that my response is the same.
Could these events be the inability to differentiate between dreams where the subject believes they occur during awake but are actually dreams?
As someone who with intermittent sleep paralysis for 20 years it has helped me to understand how the lines between fantasy and reality can become blurred and even or especially if the duration of the event is only seconds long. The shorter the easier it seems to get confused because it is not as involved as a longer, more drawn out event.
It is also good to study false memories or memory repression, not calling these false memories just a way to better understand how over time real and unreal becomes more of a fine line. I read that this plays a part into statutes of limitations being implemented.
