Irrational Fears

Irrational Fears

  • About

    By Margaret Lowenfeld

    Everyone feels afraid sometimes, for fear is a valuable part of human life; fear of accidents leads to caution in traffic- fear of fire to care with gas taps. These are rational fears, but the fears of children are often quite irrational: they are afraid-terribly afraid – but they cannot give a name to their fear or a reason for it: a little child is often afraid of strangers, shrinks at the sight of a dog, buries his head in the bedclothes when he wakes in the night, and cries at the thought of going upstairs in the dark.
