Last August my daughter was stung by a bee. She became afraid of bees, but the fear was not impacting her life. The past month she has developed a more intense fear of insects. My parents live on a lake. We visit a lot during the summer. She will not go swimming because of the dragon flies. If she even goes down to the beach she cries and has to leave. She would not come in the house yesterday because a fly had flown in. This morning she would not go in the living room because she saw an ant. Her reaction to bugs is more than a typical reaction of 'ooh look a spider, yuck'. She breathes hard, gets red, cries and she panics. No amount of rational reassurance helps. I think she might need to talk to somebody, but I am not sure where to start. Any suggestions? Do you have any coping skills you could suggest? Thank you.
ETA: My daughter is 7 and entering 2nd grade.
