  • It is normal for her age, she is just now getting old enough to realize that the world can be a scary place. Comfort her as much as possible, but don't over react, talk upbeat, and hug her saying "oh, it's okay, see it's just (insert whatever she is crying about)" When she sees you react appropriately she should start to calm down a bit. And she will know that she cn rely on you if she is scared, which will giver her more confidence in the long run.
