  3. Heather:

    depends…
    I had a nightmare that bugs and all sorts of creepy crawlies were crawling out of holes in my walls and going under my covers and all over me trying to suffocate me…I was 9ish??

    but when I was 6 I had 2 fears
    1. my parents would divorce…
    2. one or both of my parents would die….

  4. Laura:

    When I was really young (like 2-3 yrs old), I was terrified of being trapped in enclosed spaces, so doors closing always scared me. Somehow I grew out of it before preschool, though.

  5. Anon:

    people dressed up in costumes at theme parks..i got attacked by a barn at barnhills..scarred me forever.

  6. anonymous:

    my dad

  7. 1. nightmares
    2. death (probably when i realized we’re not gonna be in this world forever)

  8. Cody:

    Oh I was terrified of spiders. Those things scare the crap out of me.
    But the worst was I would have nightmares about my mom grounding me for life.
    That was for sure the most terrifying thing I remember as a kid, being grounded FOREVER!

  9. Angria:

    The dark…I had a nightlight all the way up until high school. Complete darkness still freaks me out a little bit.

  14. Danni:

    my cat sneaking in and attacking my feet while I was sleeping

  15. Rob:

    I had a close encouter with a Rattlesnake when I was a kid. So long ago I can’t say for sure if it was a dream or reality, all I know is that it’s stuck with me

  16. Grac(ie):

    I used to be terrified of waitresses…couldn’t order my own food at a restaurant until I was like 12.

    For my whole life I have been afraid of escalators and getting in trouble.
    The getting in trouble one is the worst. I can’t stand to watch movies where the characters do something that might possibly get them in trouble. Maybe this is why I strongly dislike the entire Harry Potter series of books and movies.

    Death & teenagers.

  18. I had a repeating bad dream about lions and witches. It always made me cry

    Always terrified that one or more of my children would die before me. I don’t think I could stand that sort of pain.
