My 5 year old son is afraid of the sound of alarms. Mainly smoke alarms and the sounds from security systems. He has never experienced a fire or a break in. At school when they have fire drills he covers his ears and cries and screams, and he does the same if the smoke alarm may go off cause of cooking. Even if it beeps cause the battery needs changed he gets anxious. He wants to be a firefighter when he grows up and I have tried to explain to him why they sound that way, but it has not worked. What can I do to help him no be so afraid?
