Top 10 Childhood Fears


The Top Ten

1 The Dark

I conquered my fear of the dark when I was 11. I would cry if I have to sleep in the dark so I would always sleep with my mom or my older sister, so my grandma bought me a T.V. for Christmas in 2007 and I would always sleep with it on and I still do. - PrincessKiana

I used to hate the dark as a little kid, now the effect flopped, one shining light in my room I tend to stay away from.

The Dark always scared the crap outta me - TwilightKitsune

No duh, the dark is terrifying? - BeatlesFan1964

I watched Monsters Inc. and felt better - PeeledBanana

3 Sharks Sharks Sharks are a group of fish characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Sharks have been around before the earth's first dinosaurs and even the earth's first trees.

Sharks are one of the reasons why I don't like oceans. Have you seen the goblin shark? No thank you. - Pegasister12

9 Big Dogs

I've been bitten in the face by dogs, and one of them completely split my bottom lip open which resulted in me getting stitches. I've also had bad times whenever I own one, and now my dad hates dogs

This is my childhood fear, now I don't walk past dogs if they bark at me. They have already attacked me twice, so I stay away from ones that bark at people - Martinglez

The reason why I dislike dogs is because once a dog attacked me and bit me really hard on my hand when I was 4, and I had to go and get stitches. - Catacorn

I used to be very afraid of barking dogs as a little kid - mayamanga
