14thCluelessbird 1y Not my child, but I used to babysit a kid in every now and then when I was in highschool. The family lived kind of on the outskirts of the city. The house itself was normal but the area around the the house would sometimes give me the creeps, especially the backyard. Sometimes you'd be outside and it honestly felt like something was hiding in the treeline watching you, and it would get really, really quiet. One time the kid was complaining about how it was too dark in his room and he was afraid to go to
