If he even thinks he hears a dog's collar jingling, he freezes in terror. This started about a year ago when he was knocked down by a big dog. Fear of dogs is not uncommon among children who have been frightened or hurt by a dog. This fear can linger for years, but parents can help a child overcome it. Fearful- ness of this kind can't be overcome by reasoning or common sense. Rather, the child's feelings have to be changed. I would advise this mother to keep in mind the following sugges- tions, and to try them whenever the opportunity arises: Respect your child's feelings about dogs, and if he asks you to hold his hand or to go the long way around when passing by a dog, do as he asks. Be casual about it and matter-of-fact. Don't make an issue of it and don't be in a hurry for him to get over his fear. It takes time. Whenever you get a chance, watch dogs or puppies playing when you are with your child. But don't try to get him to go any closer than he wants to. Make up stories about dogs. You can begin: "Once upon a time in a land far away there was a dog." Then ask your child whether it was a big dog or a little dog, and what it looked like. Repeat his description of the dog and continue the story: "The dog was walking along, and who else was walking along?" Let your child make the story develop according to his imagination. You pull it together into a story. After- wards he might enjoy drawing a pic- ture to illustrate the story. Play with your child with a toy dog -- in the sand box, at the beach, or right in your living room. Make the dog disappear by burying it in the sand or under a sofa cush- ion. Pull it out and let him do it him- self. Ask him if the dog is going to scare anyone, then play along with his ideas, letting him take the lead. The purpose of the stories and of this kind of play is to put the child in a situation in which he has control. When dogs have frightened him, he has felt helpless. Now, in play, he can make the dog bite, or not bite. he can punish the dog if he wants to, he can knock the dog down or bite it -- whatever he thinks up, he can make it happen in play. Encourage him to play out the scenarios he thinks up, and to do it again and again over a period of days or weeks, until he is no longer interested. The feelings he gets of being in charge of the situation will counteract the feelings of being helpless and overwhelmed that he experienced when he was fright- ilm,,ll I+ f The best.things in the Greater | Greenbner Valley are free... | Including .......

After a while, it might be time to consider getting a puppy. Something To Do Get some large sheets of paper and some crayons or colored chalk or fingerpaint. Play a record that you like or turn on the radio to some music you like, and let yo+ur hands and arms "dance" on the paper, making swirls and rhythmic lines. Don't try to draw a picture. Just move with the music, letting the crayons, chalk or paint make pat- terns according to how you are mov- ing. Something To Make" Save ~ of those plastic bas- kets that berries come in+ Get some bright colored heavy yarn hair-ties, and show your child how to weave the yarn in and out of the holes in the strawberry basket. It isn't neces- sary to do a perfect job of weaving for the basket to look festi,Je. When your child has finished weaving, make a handle for the basket out of a doubled piece of the yarn. If you can't find the yarn hair-ties, just use regular yarn doubled and strung through the eye of a safety pin.
