The Trouble with Storms

Apparently Lulu is afraid of thunder. After Pete's swimming lesson tonight, Lulu didn't want to come in out of the rain. HG was telling her that she had a minute and then she needed to come on in when a BIG thunder sounded. Lulu shrieked, a scream worthy of a slasher movie, and scrambled to the door, clearly desperate to get in. HG let her in, and we both comforted her (while trying not to laugh). "Are you okay?" we said. She said, "No. The thunder scared me and... the thunder scared me and... the... thunder scared me!"

Years ago, I was at my brother's New Years Eve party, and there was a little girl there named Olivia. The fireworks scared Olivia, but her parents didn't really notice. So I told her, "Of course they are scary to you. It's because you aren't booming them back. She looked at me like I was crazy, but the next pop was followed with her whispering "boom". Within ten minutes, Olivia was shouting BOOM in response to any she heard, and she was delighted.

I use this same concept with Pumpkinhead, because he showed some concerns with thunder, too. You can try it if you want to.
