    Helping 1 yr old overcome fear

    Hello mummies, I recently discovered my 1 yr old is terrified of umbrellas..she will cry every time she sees one.. Even when it's closed..my guess is probably she got a big fright once when an umbrella suddenly opened in front of her...I am wondering how should help her overcome this fear? Any mummy has any similar experience? Thanks!

    does your baby had a frightening experience in umbrellas or someone is threatening her with the umbrella?

    It might be 1 of the cause.
    if you really dont know what or how to solve your baby's issue doctors might help you out.

    Try to get a small unbrella, those mini mini for lil children one. C if you can get those with cute cartoon characters if not get one that is colorful or with bright colors, show it to her n laugh n giggle n open slowly n laugh. Keep laughing n giggling. Yr laugthers n smiles wld sooth her tension. Slowly but keeps repeating what an umbrella is for. Dance or sing with the umbrella do silly actions n keep laughing n giggling.
    My lil one use to b afraid of thunders. Whenever theres a thunder i will hug him tight n tell him upthere (lei gong) playing drum. Bought a lil drum for him to play also. Slowly he gets the concept n no more afraid of the thunder~
