Children grow, develop. Begin to talk. Immediately it becomes a little easier for parents. After all, now the child can explain what he wants, why he cries, and where he has a pain. However, they are becoming aware of many things in a new way. And along with pleasant discoveries, they can understand that the world is full of unknown and terrible phenomena.
What are they afraid of?
I must say that we do not frighten the child. He does not know and is not afraid of the mythical Babaevs and the various Aek invented by adults. We have more real fears.
The son had been afraid of dogs before. But only when he saw the animal in front of him. Now he is afraid of a dog that he does not see, but only hears. When we come to the village, the son immediately begins to talk to us about the dog in the house. He knows that behind the bushes at the neighbor sits a dog on a leash. The dog is kind, but its duty, as a guard, fulfills and barks at all the passersby.
As soon as the sonorous barking is heard, the son throws all the work and runs, wherever they look, and can burst into tears. We explain that the dog is on a leash, that it does not bite. Although, the fact that the dog can bite him no one seems to have said. It remains only to calm him down and wait for the outgrowth.
The son of a wolf is afraid just like a fairytale hero. Moreover, this attitude to the gray villain with him for a long time. The picture in the book, the puppet theater toy, the hero of the cartoon – the son is afraid of any wolf. Probably, the artists manage to convey the evil temper of the wolf, so the son had this fear.
This is our family. My daughter and sister are terrified by the spiders. And I do not complain about worms. Recently I saw my son backing away from something in fear. It turned out – a spider.
Previously, moving something could only interest. And now he is afraid. He also did not want to look at the worm closer.
We recently wanted to buy a son railway. Well, in the store we were shown it first. The moving, whistling and smoking locomotive did not at all delight the son, but rather frightened him. Although he looks at a real train with interest.
Not to say that the son is afraid of the dark. But, he had never thought about this topic at all. And now, if the room is dark, does not go there, but rather asks to turn on the light.
The son has long been afraid of the vacuum cleaner and food processor when they work. Growing up, he began to protest against the blender. Especially if I turn them on. Problematic for me, but I think it will soon pass.
All children are afraid of something. This is probably normal. The daughter at this age was afraid of unfamiliar baleen uncles and in general people with an unusual appearance, and … fluttering butterflies. I know some children who are frightened by deflated balls. My nephew had two toys – a robot and a hedgehog with hair instead of needles, which terrified him.
At the age of 2 years, children actively explore the world, and everything that is unfamiliar to them can both interest and frighten them. We just need to be patient and not ignore. After all, it may turn out that fears are the result of some family or psychological problems, to which only specialists can help.
Interestingly, there are 2-year-olds who are not afraid of anything?
