There was a time you could make a child sit still by telling them the Cu-cuy was going to get them. Now, that is considered a form of mental abuse. “El cucuy” is comparable to the boogie man, but is much scarier. Cuuuuuu- Cuuyyyyyyyyyyy!” Say this in the dark with a bunch of Mexican kid and they will start to cry. What do you remember about the Cu-Cuy? Ernest Paz He was an alright dude as far as I can remember. Kinda of a creeper at times, pero he learned how to get along with the neighborhood kids. Wonder what he’s been up to nowadays?! Jesse Rivas Damn you scared me already . hope i can sleep tonite with the lights off !!!! Norma Sanchez Martinez I remember as a kid my grandmother used to tell her grandchildren that would stay there with her that if we weren’t in the bed by 10pm and asleep Cucuy was going to get us so believe me when I say we were all in bed and asleep by 10pm. No cucuy for me. Lol Carmen Madariaga I think it’s OK to let children know by a certain age that there is bad, even evil because after all it does exist in reality!
Ooie ooie, the cucuy! But, balance it with the knowledge of our guardian angel who protects us, especially when we pray! Fear without hope is a bad thing, for children and grown ups alike!
