(Chapter 3) why does jack and the littluns have fear have fears about about "beastie"

The Littluns are plagued with nightmares. The beastie is the only way they can comprehend their fears. For Jack, I think the concept of a beast is manifested through his paranoia. He feels something is watching him. It is not until later that Jack uses the beast as a bargaining chip to instill fear and control the boys.
