How did you help him or her get over that fear? "Shadows. I spent three hours making shadow puppets on the walls moving lights and everything to show her they weren't scary. She was 2. It was horrible. She wouldn't leave her room." — Shaun Hermann "Both of my girls were afraid of Target department store fl oors! I just kept taking them until they got over it." — Priscilla Morales "Currently my toddler fears the vacuum. I don't know why — she must have been a dog in a former life." — Brianna O'Reilly "My son was afraid of thunder. I told him that God commands the thunder and tells it where to go. He was calmed, had peace of mine and never feared the thunder again. He knew that God was in charge." — Shirley Carrasco "The dark. We have a night light in their room and they all have Dream Lites pillows." — Beth Rose "Flushing toilets. We still are working on it, ha ha!" — Katie Angel "My 7-year-old is afraid of getting locked in the bathroom. She had it happen to her last year and now she won't go into a bathroom that isn't ours without us. We're still trying to fi gure out how to get her over it. It's been almost a year!" — Brie Kozlowski This month's cover kid is Tyler Murphy, 7, from New Windsor. Tyler loves swimming and baseball. He takes piano lessons and acting classes. His favorite subject is math. Photo by Michael Bloom 26
