We've discovered over the past few weeks, through several summer thunderstorms, that Tucker is pretty scared of thunder. We've talked her down from sheer panic into merely extreme trepidation. She questions us about it regularly through each storm and for a bit after each one. (She also woke up crying about an hour after going to sleep last night - a rarity - and the first words out of her mouth were asking about the thunder. Poor thing.)
It got me to thinking about fears. We all have them - and they're all different. I, personally, am not scared of thunder. Tucker's fear, however, is very real to her.
What are YOUR fears or the fears of your kids and how do you deal with them?
