Children have power, believe it. I think it has to do with the fact that they are actually much closer to God than we (older people are).

I would think that as a kid you would have more ideas than you would as adult? You might not have the information, but surely the imagination to create multiple ways of hiding from any kind of monster.
I did the hiding under the blanket thing as well. My head could be out of the cover, but my neck and body had to be covered, and the blanket had to be tucked under my body so nothing could get in.
I never once, however, thought of demons or monsters that any religous aspect could help me with. I knew who God was, and what Demons were, but they never played a role.
I was also afraid of Gremlins. I thought they would bite my butt when I was using the bathrrom. So I had to run out of the bathroom very fast. I never found something to help me with that one...
