Help Your Child Overcome Their Fears

Help Your Child Overcome Their Fears

At some point in your childhood, you may remember rushing to your parents’ bedroom because you’re afraid of the dark. If your child is experiencing quite a fright when you turn off the lights during bedtime, you must not take the incident lightly.

As a parent, it doesn’t help your child if you dismiss whatever it is that they are afraid of in their bedroom at night. When you choose to become dismissive, your little one will feel that you don’t care about their feelings, according to educators in Montessori School in Jessup, Maryland. Worse, they may become traumatized, knowing that no one can help them.

Your child may be afraid of the dark for various reasons. Perhaps, they may have heard scary stories from other people or watched a show that has monsters creeping in dark areas. Whatever it is that your child is afraid of in the dark, coax them into confiding with you. More importantly, listen and assure them that you’re there to help them overcome it.

In our Montessori Daycare, we establish activities that can allow children to help overcome their fears. Maple Lawn Montessori of Laurel is not all about learning development. We also value building your child’s self-esteem and confidence so they can face their fears.
