I think Sophie is afraid of the dark and of witches. All of a sudden!
We were watching an episode of Dora last week that she has seen a dozen times and all of a sudden the witch came on and Sophie started whimpering and wanted me to take it off and wanted me to carry her. She would not turn towards the TV. And this was DORA. It was so bizarre.
When did your kid start showing fears like this? Have they?
Re: What is your child afraid of?
L is afraid of this beautiful, wooden Pinocchio that his great-aunt brought him from Colombia. We had it hidden in his closet when we realized he was afraid of it, but then he realized it was there and he would peek in and then run out crying. So we took it out completely.
Similar to what you're describing, though, we bought him a Diego DVD that had a witch that changed animals into objects. Well, he whimpered and then had nightmares. He didn't tell us directly to take it off, but he got really agitated and we figured it out. This was about 3-4 months ago.
Diego is afraid of a few things. Loud noises like the Vacuum, sometime thunder. He is not a fan of the rain since one day we got caught off in a park and there was a big storm.
He doesn't like some characters from some movies like from Cars, he is afraid of the big truck (corn cutter), form Happy Feet he is afraid of the big seal. Those are the ones I remember.
Lately he is afraid of bugs, ants, and things like that.
Once we went to eat at Rainforest Cafe.....and OMG, we had to moved to a table where no animals where close by...lol. He got scare of the thunders and animals noise.
What can I say?.....We are working on it...lol
Eli can't watch Nemo - you know how in the very beginning the shark attacks - he can't get passed those first 3-5 minutes of the movie. We have to fast forward that part.
