A lot of elementary school students have a fear of thunderstorms. We recently went into a local first grade classroom to find out what they know about weather, it turns out that they know quite a bit!
Despite having a knowledge of weather, some children still have a fear. If your child is afraid of thunderstorms, it is important to make a plan to ease your kids fears and make them feel safe. Also, make sure they know how weather works. You can get books or read about how weather happens on the internet. Finally, be encouraging and help them through their fear.
