Children absorb more than adults give them credit, and unfortunately for us, it's not just the good stuff they take on. Some young children's morbid curiosity draws them closer to manipulation and violence rather than chalk murals and sand castles.
People jumped onto a popular Reddit thread to share the worst things they've seen children do, and it's more than a little bit scary.
Please note, some of these are very disturbing.
1. From DragoonHimself:
When my cousin was about 4 years old, caught him spraying hairspray in to the furnace flames trying to "blow the house up." Good times.
I do a lot of secure transports between hospitals and psych facilities. I once transported an 8 year old kid who flushed his parents’ insulin because he knew they needed it to live.
