My 19month old is afraid of leaves, trees, flowers, bushes, plants, I have a small hand size statue of a butterfly and flower, she is afraid to look at it. She screams and after you can feel little Trimbles in her body. We first noticed this when we went to the children's museum. We took her near some plants in the garden area she screamed so loud I was scared someone would call the police on us.

My daughter was terribly afraid of monsters at night. Recently we purchased the Monster Security System. From the very first night, as if by magic, it provided her with the confidence to sleep through the night! It has been great. Check out www.monstersecuritysystem .com

sometimes a child is not just afraid of fireworks, or dog barking. they are afraid of many low and high frequency sounds. such sounds include fireworks, dog barking, babies crying, children and people voices, lawn mowers, vacum cleaners, drills, rain falling, thunder, fire drills and fire engines, sirens, telephone ringing. low frequency sounds such as people breathing, chewing, swallowing, referigerator humming, computer and printer, washing maching etc. i am a practitioner in auditory integration training, with this procedure i desensitize the children's hearing. an intense program of sound stimulation varying in pitch and intensity(using music and headphones), activates the middle and inner ear which then transmits sound to the brain via the auditory nerve. the sound stimulation improves aural flexibility and enhances the transmission of sound to the brain. in the auditory system, going from the eardrum to the brain cells, concise zones exist corresponding to low-pitches and high-pitches tones. these parts are not anatomically similar on the eardrum, on the cochlea, and perhaps in the brain itself. if one or the other of these areas of the auditory system is stimulated by certain programmed alternating sounds, the same identical result as that obtained by mobilization of the elbow is achieved. if anyone wants further information on ait or my upcoming session in chennai in january, they can correspond with me via email: also visit my website at: please read my comments in speech, hearing and vision development site of the page. sharda ramlackhan, m.a. 54 jennifer road, lowell, ma 01854-2106 tel: 978-458-3277

parents are also responsible in building up fears in the child. for example,if a childis too fusy to have food, the mother tries to feed her by calling all ghosts(gogaya), ghurka, lion etc. sometimes, it so happens the child will not head to elders unless she is scared of the above things. hence , elders should realize that they should not contribute in building up the fears in the child.

my 10 month old son is very scared of lizards.. he just starts screaming hysterically when he sees them. well that has happened just 2-3 times but it made us afraid too.. one more thing is he starts crying when he sees anyone closing a door in front of him.. even when someone else is with him, he's not left alone. i guess it started when i started going back to work.. i think he has associated the action of closing a door to the thought that the person is not coming back again. it makes me feel guilty every day going to work leaving him at home! hope that these fears go away as he grows up.

i am terrified of dogs and i want to make sure that my son does not grow up to be scared of dogs (he is only 13 months). so i try to go out of my way to show him dogs at close proximity. once a fear takes root, it is difficult to remove.
