Should we protect children from fear?

Should we protect children from fear?

Growing up, children are often afraid of the dark, the monster under the bed or the storm. And some parents are so afraid that their child will be afraid that they are doing everything to preserve them. Even if this feeling is understandable, should everything be done to preserve the child from fear?

Marcel Rufo, child psychiatrist, is reassuring in this video produced by Milan Presse. Fear is part of the good development of the child. To grow, the child must overcome his fears. A child who is afraid is a child who is making progress. Parents can encourage the child to talk about their fears and put them on the stage. His role is not to scare, but to accompany the child in the control of his fears. And a child who overcomes his fears is a child growing up.
