That is what I was thinking, they did it out of necessity. Like living in the woods in the old days, they would tell stories to scare the children from wandering away into the woods of the night. Their fear of their children lost caused them to use fear tactics towards their children. And the reason is because it worked for the majority because their parents did the same thing, and the cycle moves until one goes against the grain and comes up with a new way to be.

One thing I've been thinking about is a sort of "futuristic/post apocalyptic" vision of the same idea.

What if the children are armed to the teeth with advanced self-defense equipment? Wandering away into the forest in that case would still be dangerous, but not for the same reasons.

What should parents say in that case? If the true danger cannot be effectively communicated?

Or maybe the woods are just dangerous in the dark and those parent's were giving their children a warning of the darkness of night. Perhaps it's not wise to venture into the darkness without proper preparedness, such as armour and a weapon.
