Fear of Lightening: Dr. Bob Maier

"Most adults love to sit & watch a good thunderstorm. But to a toddler it can be a frightening experience. Many kids are naturally afraid of thunder because it sounds so dangerous & powerful. Telling them there's nothing to worry about doesn't seem to do much to calm their fears. Instead, try finding a few children's books about storms and encourage them to talk about their fears. Ask them "What are you afraid might happen when it thunders". You might be surprised at their answer. They could say something like "What if lightening gets in our house" or "I'm scared of thunder falling on our roof". This gives YOU a chance to explain what thunder is and why lightening won't hurt them if they stay indoors. Just talking about it often makes things better.

Kids fears aren't always rational - but to them they are always real."
