Fall brings with it pumpkins, apple cider, and sweater weather, and Halloween. For some, this season is full of fun and excitement. However, for others it can be a time of fear and worry.
Every child is wired differently. What is funny to one can be scary to another. What is exciting and thrilling to one can be terrifying and incapacitating to another. Parents (and school staff if you do Halloween at school) need to know what individual children can handle. Adults need to use caution to protect children from unnecessary fears and trauma. If a child is already prone to anxiety and expresses fear, respect their right to feel it. For more ideas check out this link
