Grandpa, I’m Afraid
Mart Grams, author
This short part is for you moms and dads that are dealing with the common fears of children from about two to seven years of age. The fears that your child goes through are normal; just relax and let Grandpa help. It?s pretty normal for children to go through phases, being afraid of different things at different times. Alli and I will deal with the most common: monsters, the dark, clowns or people in costume, insects, medicine, and shots. They develop because you?re doing a good job of exposing your children to the world around them, but as Tamar Chansky (Freeing Your Child from Anxiety) states clearly, ?A preschooler?s imagination is really blossoming, and he can often concoct some scary explanations for things that he?s not sure about.
