Hey littles, I've had a fear of thunderstorms and tornadoes for a long time now and I was just wondering what is the best ways to handle fears when you're a little?

I don't have a fear of thunder but I do get scared of people yelling. Which is also something loud and frightening. When that's happening I usually cuddle with a stuff, put on some headphones and listen to my favorite music or watch something really funny. Before you know it you've lost track of time and everything is all done and over while you were still happily distracted.

I do watch some cute movies or listen to music, calling on Papabear or friends and making me some food or taking a bubble bath always calms me down.

I have mild anxiety and when I find myself anxious or afraid I either think of something funny and focus on that or sing a song/hum a song from beginning to end. My main goal in doing this is to distract myself enough so I can get through what I need to do until I can get to safer place.

For me, I suppose it depends on what I'm reacting to. If it's in my control I do my best to tackle it. For example, hearing noises in the night that I know deep down are just the house settling down but my overactive imagination thinks all sorts. I have talked myself into getting up and turning the lights on in every room to reassure myself I'm safe and try to stop that circle of worry that feeds on itself.

 

If I can't do anything about whatever is scaring me, like stormy weather, I try to make a safe space for myself or the comfort of a familiar routine helps like a bubble bath, good book and bed with a soft blanket and teddy and lots of pillows.

 

All that being said, sometimes my response to a fear or feeling scared is instinctive and emotional and all of the above goes out of the window! Then, I just get through it until I'm on the other side and whatever it was has passed.
