How to save the child from fear

The fear of the child is a big problem. Also it is dangerous especially that it can cause neurotic frustration, such as tic, stutter, sleep disorder, enuresis, etc. It is possible to fix a problem, but just it is better not to allow it.


1. First of all, parents, grandmothers and grandfathers should not intimidate the child. Some grandmothers like to frighten kids by "babayka" and the dark room that filled up quietly and did not spin. Or with the same purpose sometimes say: "You will be capricious – I will give you to foreign uncle". Such "educational" measures can enhance passivity and disturbing suspiciousness only. Therefore you watch closely that with whom and as the child communicates.

2. Parents sometimes even do not suspect that the simple animated film sometimes too can become a fear source at children. Such problems can arise in 3 years when at the kid the imagination violently develops. Therefore carefully treat selection of what the child watches on TV.

3. Constantly support the kid. Answer more often all his uncountable questions of where as well as why you go. Uncertainty always frightens, especially children.

4. Do not leave the child to fill up one in the dark room at least until he is not 5 years old. Feeling presence and support of the native person, the kid will fall asleep quicker and more strong. At the same time it is not obligatory to lay down together with him, it is rather simple to sit nearby and to read the quiet book for the night.

5. If fears continue to be present at the child's life, psychologists recommend to talk confidentially to him about what torments him. Write together with it together the tale of his fears, but it is obligatory with the happy end. Or ask the child to draw the drawing, then to make him ridiculous: to add a smile, ridiculous ears or a nose, and then to tear or burn.

6. Hide-and-seek in the apartment at the muffled light can become one more effective "medicine". Try to set the child an example and in its search to come into dark corners of the room. Later he will begin to repeat your actions.

7. And the last – remember that children study at parents, copy them in everything including in their relation to the world around. For example, if there was something frightening – the plate broke or the ball burst, it is better to react to a situation with laughter or cheerful exclamations, but not lamentations or shout at all. After a while the child will surely learn not to be afraid of sharp sounds.
