She is 3 and would sleep through bad storms until last year when we moved and lived in an area where the storms seem to be more intense. We had to go down to the basement several times last spring. Now, if it's storming during the night, she wakes up crying and wants to get in our bed. I've explained about thunder, lightning, etc. Ideas??
sort by best latest
That's a great idea! I wish we had a window like that with a good vantage point. We do rate the thunder on a scale of 1 to 10. That seems to have helped some. :)
I've made up some similar stories and she likes when I tell the stories, but it wasn't helping with her fear during the storm. I think it will just take time.
Yes, it is definitely a phase. Unfortunately, when this phase passes, it will be traded for a new phase. :)
