Fears

Some of our kids fear the worst possible outcome in most situations. They may ask "if I fall down, will I get dead?" When your child brings their fears to you, never dismiss them.

Don't say Instead...
That's silly or that can't/won't happen Ask what they are afraid of falling from and explain what could happen...i.e: "if you fell with your bike you might get a cut...but, Nana will help you clean it and put a clean bandage on it and it will get all better".
Why do you worry so much I know sometimes it can be scary when you don't know what can happen...I always want you to tell me if you're worried or scared so we can talk about it.
I don't know what to tell you Put your child's thinking cap on and imagine all their possible fears. Be prepared to discuss how you will protect them, or they could protect themselves in any situation.

Unfortunately, there are some real life threatening possibilities out there. It's just a matter of time before your child hears about them. Be prepared to discuss them with your child.
