Did your parents ever tell you the Bogeyman would come get you, for example if you got out of bed in the middle of the night he`d come out of the closet or out from under the bed to grab you?

no, i've never been afraid of the dark anyway, so it didn't matter.

I don't recall them ever saying that, maybe jokingly, but I doubt I would have taken them seriously. My active imagination made me more afraid of "boogeymen" than anything my parents may have told me.

No, my parents never told me stuff like that.

No, they were content with the threat of physical violence, too much strain on the brain to use their imaginations I guess.

No, but those pictures are crazyyyy

No. What happened to you kiki?

No, I had such terrible nightmares when I was a child, that I slept in my parent's bed until 1st grade.

If my parents would of done that, I probably would have gotten a complex.

Not the Boogeyman, but Bozo the Clown.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/19/07 - 4:46:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Never! My parents were way too smart to risk sleep deprivation by inventing nightmarish tales such as this.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/19/07 - 4:47:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nah, I was a good kid, so I didn't get out of bed.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/19/07 - 4:48:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, that was my cousin's job...

I think they may have a few times, not taken seriously though.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/19/07 - 10:55:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, not even as a joke. I always got the explanation that the bogeyman and other monsters are just "make-believe" and don't really exist.

My father used to mess with me like that. I never really believed him, though.

BTW, I'm rather amused at the thought of the bogeyman coming out of the closet.

No, my friends told me. And in second grade they told me that "sex" was a swear word. I got home that day and my mom was filling out some form and one part asked what your sex was and I pointed to it and was like "That's a bad word!" It was kind of funny.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/17/07 - 7:15:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
Never. My parents had enough sense not to scare their children with stupid lies.

Hell yeah. I always got told about boogeymen, monsters, ghosts, and things.
And just to prove that there actually ARE monsters hiding under the bed, my dad would occasionally hide under our beds and grab our ankles as we walked by.
Even occasionally now I jump out of bed and into the middle of the room, just in case.

No, that's so cruel. What if you have to go to the bathroom?

No, but the Kurgan and one of his friends were talking once about how absurd the stories we were told when we were young by our parents, especially abount Santa Claus. Anyways, the Kurgan and his friend decided that we wouldn't tell our children about Santa Claus, but that every December 24th at night packs of wild, blood-thirsty orangutans would roam the streets... and if you were good that year, they'd let you live another year... but if you were bad, they'd devour you. LOL.

No, but when I was six I saw a mentally handicapped person in the shopping centre and my uncle told me that he pulled a face and the wind changed.

Whenever there was a babysitter taking care of me my brother used to tell me that the bogeyman was hiding under my bed because Mom and Dad weren't there to protect me.

I would start screaming my head off and one time the babysitter got so frustrated because I wasn't going to sleep and she started crying too.

No cause i was paranoid enough by myself as it is Ha. I would have stayed up all night!

No but my mom used to threaten to sell me to thr gypsies if I didn't behave. There aren't many gypsies in thr New York area and frankly, it's rather discrimatory but I behaved, thinking gypsies were some sort of monster.
14 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/22/07 - 4:36:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
They did, it scared the crap outta me.

That's horrible! They didn't need to though, I always imagines weird shadowed shapes in my room were monters.
