I used to believe that monsters could come out from under my bed at night and attack me if I weren't completely covered by the bedclothes. To this day I don't know how I ever thought that a sheet and a blanket made a sufficient shield from monsters.

A variation on the "Monsters under the Bed" theme: When I was little, I believed that there were two monsters that lived under my bed. I had to sleep on my back in the exact middle of of the bed, because if I strayed too far to one side, the monster from the opposite side of the bed would get jealous and attack me from it's side.

I too had the belief that monsters would come to get me while i was sleeping but if i hid under my blanket, they wouldnt see me. But then i realised they could see the hump that was me. From then on out i imagined that the monsters were really dumb and didnt comprehend that.

I used to believe that there were things in my room and something under my bed so i could never let my foot hang out of the covers. I used to think that as long as every single bit of flesh was covered in sheets (except my face) then they couldn't get me.

that if i made sure none of me was sticking over the edge of my bed-not even a milimetre of skin-the monsters wouldnt know i was there

When I was little,I used to believe that when night came,I go to bed and start to fall asleep, ghosts come into my room.I thought that ghosts come out of the cupboard, creep out from under the bed. I was terrified, I covered my head with the sheets and couldn’t fall asleep. I heard footsteps of my imaginary ghosts, I thought I saw them. It was the most terrible fear of my childhood.

Okay, so when you go to bed you must have thought of monsters who only came out at night and do whatever to harm you when you're asleep. Who didn't think that only if you cover your entire body with the blanket (not including your head, they cannot do anything to your head), they can'y harm you? Who didn't realize a monster can flip your blanket over?

I believed, like lots of little kids, that there were monsters under the bed. I also had to turn out the light and then jump for the bed. Somehow, I determined that the monsters could only reach out two or three feet, so I would make my nightly mighty leap onto the bed so I would be safe. I also believed that it was extremely important not to let any body part hang over the edge of the bed... a hand, foot or whatever. The monsters would definitely be able to grab the overhanging parts, but I was safe on the top.

When I was young, my mom would tell me, "If you don't keep your arms & legs under the covers all night long, there are monsters/gobblins that will grab them!!"

Now at 62, even tho I've known this is all bull since I was 5 or 6 years old and what mom did was to keep me covered and warm at night, I still think about it should I wake in the middle of the night and one of my arms/hands is hanging off the bed!! ;-))

When I was little, I used to believe that there was this monster that lived under my bed. If I got out of bed when I was not supposed to, it would grab my feet and pull me under never to be seen again. I was terrified to get out of bed in the night. Of course, it did not help when my sister would leave clues everywhere to support my fears....she loved tormenting me....

When I was younger, I would always sit on my bed to put my socks on. So one time I sat on my bed with my legs hanging over the edge, putting my socks on, when I noticed how dark it was under my bed. I somehow got the idea there were monsters hiding under my bed trying to steal my socks off my feet. From then on, I jumped on my bed & kept my feet on top of it to put my socks on, just so the sock stealers couldn't take my socks.

I used to believe that as soon as I closed my eyes in bed at night monsters and other crippy things came to attack me. And as long as I keep my eyes cloesd and stay under the covers I'm safe. Till this I don't close my eyes untill I'm fully tucked in. Just in case...

I was always afraid to sleep with my hands off the bed because I thought something would come out from under the bed and pull me under.

I used to have a monster sleeping under my bed. He was green and had spikes on his head and if you let your toes ahng off the edge he would eat them. I used to have to make a flying leap for the door if I wanted to get up at nite and the only place safe was sleeping on the floor at the foot of mum and dads bed with blink and blank, my rugs. There was never a monster under their bed.

I thought there were monsters under my bed that would reach out and grab me if my legs came in range, so I used to turn off my light, get a running start & take a flying leap to land on the bed so they couldn't get me.

I know this is an old one. But I believed a monster lived under my bed. I would turn the lights off and take two steps sailing into my bed before the thing could grab me. I liked to sleep with my arm over the side of the bed, but I would not dare hang my arm over the bed unless my brother would" exactly at the same time"

I believed that monsters were out to get me - but I didn't have the belief that they weren't interested in my head. I knew they would get any bit sticking out from under the covers, so I would keep my head under the covers, and form a little air channel in the blanket so I wouldn't suffocate.

When I was little I was afraid of monsters at night. I thought they would crawl out from under my bed and eat any of my body parts that were not covered up by blankets except for my head. I figured that monsters wouldn't want to eat someone's head.
