is your child scared easily?

My son is 15 months. when someone knocks on the door he instantly runs to me, and any noise that spontaneously happens...scares him. I feel like he is too young to associate these noises with fear. Was/Is your child like this? When did they grow out of it?

  • My son is 1yr and is the same way. Everything scares him. Every since he was about 6 months he starttles easily. Once he went to daycare and around other kids yelling or at the park he got so much better and used to all the noise.

  • My 2 year went through the same thing right when she turned 1 it went on for a couple of months, then she became what i like to call my little performer. She would dance and sing for everyone she loved to be the certain of attention. Now get this in the last few weeks she has been acting scared again only this time it is worse i do not get it!!!
