Get your tissues ready.


Movies are meant to make us feel something, to reach deep into our hearts and tug on those strings. While everyone's emotional threshold is different, it's not hard to think of that one scene that hurts our souls to this very day.

Also, SPOILER ALERT for all of these films.

Reddit user, u/Honest_Product_850, wanted to know when to have a good cry when they asked:

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:
