Agree with the above, He simply is what you create him to be.  I remember these stories as a child, my grandfather used to tell them to me and then send me out into the night (we lived on a ranch in the middle of nowhere) when i would return a few seconds later he would ask "Did you get scared"? of course i would reply "Yes", he would then send me back out into the pitch black and tell me "Count 100 stars and then come back in and tell me if you're still afraid" I would reluctantly comply but did as instructed.  When i came back in he would ask "still scared?" and i replied "No"

That is the what i guess is the unorthodox way i defeated my fear of the things in the night...now i thrive on darkness :D

H did this with thunderstorms. Our kids were still held in my H arms when he began taking them onto a porch or sunroom or into the garage with the door open,  to watch and listen and talk about storms.

I think it's just a fear of the unknown and who has more to learn than a child?

I can remember my Nan using the Boogeyman story when I was real young. The annoying part was the nightmares I would have later on. Great one Nan... <_<

Don't blame it on the sunshine, don't blame it on the moonlight,
Don't blame it on good times, blame it on the boogey-man!

Just a scare tactic to get children to do what they want them to do--like go to bed and sleep.

Forget what they told you. You want the truth, follow the money.
