    Couldn't agree more. We always comforted ds1 but it was a bit hard to explain shadows at such a young age.

    DD1 was scared of the plug. She was also scared of the dark until recently when she really had no choice but to sleep in the dark, after she broke her lamp.
    DD2 doesn't appear to be scared of anything.

    I agree kids should not be taunted by their fears. in saying that I think this is meant to be a light hearted thread about the unusual things kids are scared of.

    DS1 was afraid of flies (he got over that thankfully). Now he's got issues with dirt. If it touches his foot, all hell breaks loose.

    Handy when he's playing outside with sandals on :-/
    This reminds me that dd1 was terrified of sand when she was about 15months. Would not go anywhere near our sandpit! And we could only go to parks with the soft rubber cushion, not a sanded playground!

    DD2 was scared of the sound of packing tape. Wasn't good when we were packing to move, she would scream.

    Both my kids hate cockroaches and will squeal and run away if they see one. I don't think that's too irrational - even though they can't hurt them they are gross

    DD1 - butterflies

    DD2 - birds, loud noises

    DS2 - the worst fear yet of hand dryers in public toilets, he gets so scared he turns blue. He couldn't go in to a public toilet until about a year as even the site of one would have him a meltdown on the floor. He can go in now sometimes but he can't go close to one and if someone else uses it he melts-down.

    We took a holiday to the sunshine coast when ds2 was 3 and he refused to walk on the sand and he would have nothing to do with the surf...he was afraid of sharks. We went to underwater world during the holiday and he wouldn't even look at the sharks. He's 6 now and over his fear

    My DS -10 months- is afraid of loud crinkly noise...... Like a tarpaulin being folded, a plastic bag being scrunched or sticky tape being ripped off a parcel.
