Frightening ... or fun?
Tip #4: Use Discernment that Comes from Knowing Your Child – “It takes a discerning parent to really read their child correctly. Some children scare easily while others seem to thrive on it. Err in the direction of not frightening kids beyond a friendly “Boo!” or some other fright that is quick and easily recovered from. Kids usually do not have the discernment to know what really scares them, and they may not want to admit they are afraid. Family activity where kids count on the stability and protection of parents helps with any activity.”
