Kindergarten Emotional Development
They have irrational fears.
While many children this age are past their old fears, it’s common for kindergarteners to be afraid of the dark, dogs and falling. Some develop a new fear of “bad people.” Children this age may also be afraid of getting lost, their parents never coming home or being left at school with no way home.
What you should do: Don’t dismiss your child’s fears as irrational or unimportant, and never scold your child for her fears.
