I really dont know what to do anymore. my dd will not go in our backyard. she is very sensitive to noises. (ex. loud bugs. rail cars clanking together, loud cars) but the anxiety has gotten to the point that she wont come outside to play and when you force her outside she screams and cries and bangs on the door like she is genuinely terrified. when you ask her why or what she thinks will happen she says she doesnt like the fireworks. but I try to explain to her that fireworks are only on 1 day and so forth. we didnt even make her do fireworks this year she sat inside. but the last 2 years she has hated fireworks. she wont swim in the pool. her grandparents bought her a new wooden playhouse/swingset and she wont use it. Im not sure what to do anymore or if i should just wait to see if she grows out of it. we even tried rewarding her if she went outside. (ex. lets go eat a popcicle, we can finger paint if you come outside.)Answer Question

I would go get her medically checked out. then if their is no medical issues. I would start making her go out side. First with you or a family member. See how that works. If none of that works, she might need to go see a therapist of some sort.
