Love bug phobia

How do I calm a three year old who is terrified of love bugs? They are everywhere and there is no way to keep them away from her. She has a panic attack when one gets near her.

  • The best I can offer is to let her see one crawl on you. Maybe if she sees one crawling on you and not hurting you, it will help?

  • Yup, let her see you "laugh" when one lands on you, make a big deal out of how it "tickles"...pretend to "pet" it.....If she sees you enjoying them and having fun, she'll eventually want in on it :)
