How do you deal with preschooler fears?
His current fears:
The tree house next door (there is no tree house next door and to my knowledge, Monkey has never been in a tree house) - this one surfaces at night.
The lion at the zoo (totally legit - he was close to the glass by the sleeping lion and it sat up and startled him)
The giraffe at the zoo - BIG animal
The alligator at the zoo - big share teeth and claws
His fears surface as he experiences things - he was never afraid of trains before we tried to ride the one at the zoo today. The fire truck fear started on July 4 when we went to a parade. The animals have crept in as we've seen them at the zoo (both the giraffe and lion happened on Saturday this week).
