I listened to a segment on the radio yesterday about the irrational fears kids have.
- scared of school photos
- scared of tomato sauce
- scared of toilet paper
My own dd from about 20months to 2 1/2 was scared of the wind! Made things challenging until she could wear hats or hoodies to cover her head.
So, what irrational fears does/did your child have??

Ds1 was afraid of his shadow at around 18 months. He would keep running around to get away from it. Lol, poor kid. No problems now. He likes making shadow puppets!

Dd1 was, and still is only slightly now, terrified of bubble bath bubbles in the bath. she likes to be able to see through the bath water just in case. She is almost 8.
Dd2 is scared, absolutely terrified, of the dark guy with the wide eyes on the RAC ad where they are moving furniture into the house. She is 15 months.

Ds is scared of those apps where you age a photo of yourself. He hides and covers his eyes whenever we use it. I can see why he doesn't like it though. DD is scared of the noise a woopie cushion makes! Ds got one in a show bag the other day and whenever he gets it out dd screams and runs away crying.

DD2 is scared of everything. She is 2 and 4 months. Her fears include but are not limited to taking the plug out of the bath, vacuum, a new lamp i got the other day (now packed away), bits of fluff that look like bugs, toys that make noises, a delivery man just delivered a new part for the dyson and she went and hid in my bed, loud noises and we just had some renovations done and she was a mess for the entire week!

My 3 year old niece is scared of toys that make noise but she is absolutely terrified of Ernie from Sesame Street. If there is a teddy or anything even his name being mentioned it sends her screaming into a corner crying hysterically.
DS isn't scared of anything that we know of.

Can't think if any off the top of my head but just wanted to point out they're fears aren't necessarily irrational - there is often logic behind it and I think it's important not to tell kids they're being silly (not saying that to anyone, just a general comment).

I was afraid of fluff when I was younger.
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 :-/
