I would get a picture book about a friendly spider and read it to him. We have one called "Hurry Home Spider. "That may help,it is a cute story.

Children tend to copy their parents reaction if you are scared of spiders then try not to freak out about one when you see them. You can also try to examine the spider when you see one and teach your son about it. And make a big deal about how cool it is.

To work with a fear of spiders, try exposing your son to the idea of spiders very slowly. First, you may want to read him a book all about spiders.
