Is it a normal stage that my 5 yr old is scared of so many things?

My Son seems to be afraid of little things like wind, loud noises, automatic car washes etc. Is this just a stage? How can I help him to get over these things?

  • No. It sounds like he may have a sensory issue. I might talk to his doctor about it.

  • In some ways it is normal I know my son does not like auto carwashes even the vacuum. If he hears the wind, it sounds scary. Is it noises that could be considered scary to him?
