Ds is 5 and the last couple of months he has been afraid to do things, things he has done for years. At the park, he was scared to climb things he has climbed since he was 2. We went to a waterpark over the weekend, and he insisted on a life jacket even in the 4 inch deep baby pool. He also wouldn't go on the small waterslides without us there to catch him, even though he's done it so many times before, he can stand in the water, and was wearing a life jacket.
Is this a normal developmental stage? Like now that he is older, he understands more about getting hurt? Anyone else's kid do this?
