Hi Tee Tee! Well I think it's because you can't see. You might watch a scary Halloween show and then be scared, or if you're by yourself you might get scared too! The good part is, when you turn on the light nothing is there, nothing to be afraid of! Big people are scared of the dark too! It's all in your imagination. You're not scared are you? : )
Because they cannot see what might be there. Dangers often hide in the dark but, there are many more dangers that are imagined to be there. People are often afraid of the unknown. In the dark, the things you can't see are unknown. When you turn on the light and can see them, the imagined dangers go away.

Omigosh that's so cute! <3 Well Tee tee, I think it's because as kids, we're taught that many bad things tend to lurk in the dark. You know, like the wolf in Little Red Riding hood and Ursula. We're not exactly scared of the darkness we really are scared of the fact that we can't see. We're scared of the unknown! =)
Hey Tee Tee! Well, most kids are afraid of the dark because they're afraid of Gators and his van full of candy.... Just kidding!!! They think something might get them, like monsters. But there are no such things as monsters. :) ~Alicia
Take a good long look around your room before you turn the lights out. Notice where everything is. When you turn out the lights nothing changes. The only things in your room are the same things that you saw when the light was on.
i get scared of the dark too but i think its because you can't see whats there. if your scared of the dark TeeTee, try getting a nightlight. look around your room. and there is no such thing as ghosts, bloody mary, or the boogie man. they just do it to scare little kids.
