Fear

From 2 to 3 years

Fear

 

At that age, children start being afraid of certain things.

 Your child can refuse to go to bed because he is afraid of the dark.  You may think he doesn’t want to listen to you.

 Young children have a lot of imagination.  They believe monsters really exist.

 They become more and more reassured as the understanding increases.

 

Teaching

Show your child you respect his feelings and that his feelings are important.

When your child is afraid:

    Tell him "I understand that you are afraid. You don’t have to worry about anything, I am here".
    Stay with him until he feels safe.
  Find something to reassure him: a plush animal, a blanket, a nightlight or soft music.
    Take the time to look in the closet and under his bed with him before putting him to bed to show him there is nothing to be afraid of in his room.
