A woman is reflecting on her childhood memories and nightmares and the fact that parents often rely on tales of monsters and ghosts to scare their children away from possible dangers.
Though such parents never mean to cause harm, they may leave fear and foreboding in the minds of their offspring.

In French
Une femme se remémore son enfance, ses souvenirs, ses cauchemars et le fait que ses parents lui racontaient fréquemment des histoires de monstres et de fantômes afin de tenter de l’écarter autant que possible de divers dangers.
Bien que de tels parents ne souhaitent pas faire de mal à leurs enfants, ils aboutissent souvent à créer des peurs injustifiées dans l’esprit de leur progéniture.
