What are common fears and anxieties for 4-5 year olds?


Answer by  snessia (991)

One of the most common is probably being afraid of the dark. This includes monsters-under-the-bed-type fears. Also, strangers or being away from parents.

At this age they're probably afraid of the dark, the boogie man and the monster in the closet. If you have a shy child things like meeting new people will probably scare them.

They are afraid of things that could hurt them, such as wolves, bears, or lions. They will fear things in the dark that could hurt them, such as monsters from stories or movies they have seen. They may have a fear of strangers, if stranger danger has been taught to them.

Most 4 and 5 year olds worry about being lost if they are in a strange place. They often worry about strangers that they do not know.
