 We generally isn't afraid of much, but when he used to go to bio dads, he allowed him to watch awful graffic movies that are NOT appropriate like Kill Bill and Saw (my son is 7!) so he would come home and fear things like morderers, or ghosts. But that was sudden, but squashed pretty quickly. Just a good talk about security and what's real and whats not and mommy and daddy (stepdad) are on the other side of the wall usually works.

 Monsters in her room. I could kill my 8 yr old nephew for that. He told her that there are monsters in her room and they're going to get her. He got into big trouble!

 Our oldest is suddenly afraid of Skype. She refuses to talk to my husband because she thinks the computer is a "scary monster"

PUBLIC TOILETS!!!!!! My 5 year old refuses to go to the bathroom on a public toilet, when she was 3 we went  into a bathroom and it had those self flushing toilets...well it flushed on her while she was still peeing and the poor child almost had a heart attack. It is FINALLY getting better, but wow, it's taken alot of "bathroom pep talks" to even get her to set foot in a public restroom again.

Bugs.  Especially crickets and other kinds that hop around.  She's also afraid of frogs.  And out of all the scary things in the world, she's terrified of the seashell tub treads that are in the bottom of our tub.  She refuses to take a bath with them in there and will kick, scream and cry if you try to stick her in there with them!

Bugs, she hates them.  And she's always been afraid of loud noises.
