Usage examples for Scaring
Neither must we have mothers under the influence of the poets scaring their children with a bad version of these myths- telling how certain gods, as they say, 'Go about by night in the likeness of so many strangers and in divers forms'; but let them take heed lest they make cowards of their children, and at the same time speak blasphemy against the gods. – Plato's Republic by Plato
