Children with Phobias


Children with phobias (see full Glossary) have fears of an object or a situation that cannot be explained. These fears can make it hard for them to live their daily lives. The fears are beyond voluntary control. They are generally excessive and appear to be “unreasonable.” Some common phobias for children and teens include fear of dogs, swimming, heights, and injections.
