How can I help my child overcome fear?
Q: My daughter is 4 years 8 months old. She is very scared of being alone. Actually in school one day the teacher had detained her as she was being naughty so from then onwards she doesn't even stay alone in her familiar surrounding for a second. Can you please tell me how I can remove this insecurity in her?
A:The best way to help your daughter overcome the fear is to use behaviour modification. First of all, do not make her conscious of the fear or force her much. Whenever she shows any small sign of independent behaviour, encourage and praise her. Gradually she will overcome the fear.
