Kindergarten Intellectual Development
They’re living in a fantasy world.
Kindergarteners are the center of their own world. Separating real life and fantasy is still a year or two away. Because of this, children this age often have irrational fears about things they’ve imagined, such as a monster under the bed.
What you should do: Be patient and understanding. Don’t dismiss your child’s fear. It might be silly to you, but it’s very real to her.
