My seuntjie is nou 2 jaar en 8 maande. Hy is vreeslik bang vir goed soos 'n boor, granssnyer en veral 'n vliegtuig. Hy is so bang dat hy nie eers wil slaap in die middae indien hy enigsins iets soos 'n vliegtuig hoor nie. Ons het onglangs baie naby aan 'n helikopter gestaan met hom en hy het die skrik van sy lewe gekry. Hoe hanteer ek dit?

IDeally, you should take him to see a good local psychologist for CBT / Behaviour Therapy, so that he can learn to relax and unlearn these fears. Buz's comments are immensely useful ways to handle these episodes on your own.
