Tips to Help your Child Conquer Their Fears
Peeling a child off of you who is absolutely terrified is one of the most heart wrenching experiences as a parent. Sometimes we can get to the root cause and help them understand or get through those fears while other times it seems like they are scared without reason.
There is always a reason and although you may never be able to determine what the root cause of the fear is, having the tools to help your child cope and manage those fears is the important part.
Trying to reason with a child who is scared can be virtually impossible, which is why it is important that you talk to your child about their fears and anxieties when they are not in the throes of expressing those fears. When your child is fearful or anxious they are not able to comprehend that you are trying to help. They are in another zone and all they need from you is your presence and for you to allow them to work out and release those fearful emotions.
