Phobia Wiki
Bogyphobia (Large Image).jpeg

Bogyphobia is the fear of bogeys or the bogeyman. This fear is influenced by the media and subsequently implanted in their mind. Watching a lot of horror movies is effective in the development of bogyphobia. Some believe that if kids do something bad and get scared by their parents, the bogeyman will come and eat them or kill them.

Usually, bogyphobes are also scared of ghosts and other monsters. They may tremble, have palpitations, and get extremely anxious even with just the thought of the bogeyman. They will refuse to go out alone at night or even stay at home alone at night.

Bogyphobia treatment includes behavioral and cognitive therapy. Sufferers are taught that the bogeyman is just fictitious and is just a product of imagination.
