Sorry, Ardie, didn't know there was a questions section on HubPages.
Thanks urgurl_bri for stepping in for me.
I agree that it's not uncommon for a child to be fearful of something. Fear usually stems from something unknown or misunderstood, and there's a lot of things that falls into that category for a child. It could also relate to a negative experience, such as fear of water from having fallen into a pool.
