Like I mentioned earlier, Sharks is deathly afraid of the smoke detector. Which went off AGAIN yesterday while I was making dinner. The obvious solution to this problem is to become a better cook. Duh.
But, what I really want is to help him calm down and stop getting so frightened.
I mean, he has a meltdown every time this happens. He is inconsolable, poor little guy. He just clings to me and shakes and cries and cries and cries.
Any ideas? What have you done (or heard of someone doing) to calm the fears of your kids?
