Face Your Fears

Children can be scared of many things: the dark, monsters, being alone, robbers, storms, etc. It's hard to be courageous when it's dark out and your mind wanders. Here are  a few ideas of things to do which will encourage your child to be brave:

* Play in the dark. Give your child a big piece of paper, and have them draw things with all the lights off. You will be sitting in the room with them, turning on the lights after each drawing is complete. Laugh together as you look at the silly picture.

* Turn off the lights and have your child touch objects you have gathered; then, have them guess what they are.
