What is your child scared of?

How old is your child, and what absolutely terrifies them?

Mine is 3, and she is VERY scared of fire alarms, or fire trucks, police sirens! She is also very scared of very dark skinned men...I don't know why, but she is.

  • I can't think of anything. My boys are 11,4 and 2 and I just can't think of anything. Wait... my oldest is scared of spiders.

  • My older daughter is scared of needles (shots), tweezers (removing splinters), getting eye or nose drops. She's 9 and she still acts like a total crazy-a$$ whenever any of these things have to be done. I literally have to pin her on the floor like I'm wrestling her to do anything with her. Afterwards, she's always embarrassed about it, but she can't seem to control herself at the time, no matter how calm I stay or how many treats she's promised if she'll cooperate.

  • My son is 3 and he's afraid of loud noises or loud, boisterous people. He's also afraid of the dark.

    My daughter is only 10 months so it's hard to know what she's afraid of right now. Usually just anyone she doesn't know.

  • my 7 yr old is afraid of shots and the paddle. right now the 5 month old does not like to be thrown in the air at all. she screams. i have heard of kids not liking the sirens cause their ears are so sensitive.
