Never ridicule your child's fears — this will only exacerbate the problem. Rather, try to learn the root of his anxiety in order to reassure him. And always encourage him to bring his fears before God in prayer.

DIRECTIONS

You will need tact and prudence in dealing with any unnatural fears that your child may have acquired through the thoughtlessness of others. Instead of laughing at him, reassure him gently. Above all, at the first indication of exaggerated fears and anxieties, do all you can to dispel them so that your child will not develop the destructive habit of fright or timidity.
