Abstract

Fears are a common problem of normal childhood. As many as 9 out of 10 children develop specific fears sometime during their early years (Lapouse & Monk, 1959; MacFarlane, Allen, & Honzik, 1954). These fears take many forms and include fears of physical injury (e.g., being kidnapped, having an operation), natural events (e.g., storms, the dark), and social and achievement situations (e.g., exams, class recitations) (Miller, Barrett, Hampe, & Noble, 1972).
