Fear is a deeply rooted feeling in humans and animals, and sometimes incomprehensible.
Children are often fearful without knowing why, and reasons that we give to justify that they should not be, are useless when they carry being like that in their person. Being fearful is a symptom of natural protection, and many times something impossible to avoid and control.
With the classic fable for children by Aesop The deer and the fawn, we can explain to the child through the example how sometimes being fearful cannot be avoided.
One day, a fawn to a deer:
- Father, you are older and faster than the dogs And, in addition, you have magnificent horns to defend yourself; Why do you run away from them?
The deer, laughing, replied:
- You're right, my son, but I don't know what happens to me; as soon as I hear a dog barking, I immediately run away.
Moral: The most compelling reasons are sometimes not enough to change a fearful mood.
